There was also shows from Level 42, Kim Wilde, Roland Gift, Dr and The Medics, Belinda Carlisle, Toyah, Nick Heyward and T’Pau.
It’s the fourth year running that the event has been staged in Macclesfield.
It was like stepping back in time for the festivalgoers who set up tents for a weekend of camping and enjoyed food stalls and bars as well as the musical line-up.
Many donned leg warmers, neon and other fancy dress as part of the 80s-inspired fun and games.
