Retro Rewind, which celebrates all things retro from music to fashion to hot rods and everything in between, is on February 22.

TAKE a break from the 21st century and get into the groove for non-stop fun and nostalgia at Retro Rewind featuring the Vintage Collective Markets.

The free family event returns to Yanchep National Park on Saturday, February 22 and will celebrate all things retro from music to fashion to hot rods and everything in between.

Nine-piece Perth band The Milford Street Shakers will headline Retro Rewind taking audiences on a soulful journey through the 1950s to 1970s.

Lead vocalist Lee Morunga is sure to delight fans of James Brown, Etta James and Aretha Franklin with her energetic renditions of their classic songs.

The band will be supported by WAMAwards nominees, Randa and The Soul Kingdom, who have brought deep funk sounds to festivals across Australia and Europe, entertaining audiences with their high energy, dance-inducing sets.

There will be opportunities to buy retro treasures at the Vintage Collective Markets and young and old will be able to join in rockabilly and go-go dancing workshops.

Lawn games, face painting and much more will be available.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said Retro Rewind was always a great family day out and this year would be no exception.

“As well as the wonderful retro-inspired attractions, families will be able to enjoy Yanchep National Park itself,” she said.

“It is a truly a beautiful feature of the city’s northern corridor and new growth following the December bushfires makes Yanchep Park a perfect backdrop for such a vibrant and lively event.”

Park entry fees will be waived for the event which will run from 1pm to 5pm.
