Going Beyond where any music festival has ever gone before!
80's in the Park is a three day celebration of everything 80's.
From popular bands of the decade to iconic movies & TV cars, the event will offer something for everyone.
The top 40 hits of your decade will fill the air performed by the original artists while you play vintage arcade games like Ms. Pacman and Space invaders.
Great tribute bands and our ambassador of the 80's
Dance with 80's look a likes, shop
for t-shirts, hats, handmade jewellery and memorabilia at one of over vendors at the event.
It will be a weekend of memories both old and new!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the Park!
Commanders-In-Chief Richard & Kyle Hendry "Commodore Hampton & Son"
"An army without leaders is like a foot without a big toe." - Bill Murray
Richard and Kyle are two of the most motivated, focused big toes you'll ever meet. As the creators of 80's In The Park,
their tireless dedication to the event has led to the recruitment and organization of the most talented,
effective force ever assembled to champion the cause of retro culture.
Colonel Taylor "Geurilla Sales Coordinator" (and master of disguise)
No sales means no event... do we really have to explain how important her job is?
We didn't think so....
Lieutenant Colonel Marcellus Wallace "Guardian of the 80's"
For years before the 80's Army's arrival, DJ K.W. has been operating alone, dangerously far behind the enemy lines of crappy, auto-tuned modern pop
music and it's zombie-like douchebag followers. With total disregard to his personal safety, he has proudly served his generation as the pied piper of
retro culture fans everywhere.
Major Al "Be There" Avery "Transportation & Exchange Officer"
Besides commanding a plethora of event vendors, he also drives all over the state to make sure all our bands are where they have to be when they have
to be there. That's a tall order for a man who spends most of his life on a golf course, but he still manages to help everyone in the 80's Army with
whatever needs to be done in aid of this ground-breaking event.
Sergeants Julie & Dave "Protectors of the 80s Realm"
Nothing goes wrong with this team on the ground. Julie has a talent for weeding out the problems and laying down the plan.
his talent is doing exactly what Julie tells him to!

Meet and Greet and mini sets with festival band members!
A FEW WORDS FROM THE PROMOTERS
There are all types of crazy jobs, people that wrestle alligators, people that work in nuclear
power plants, people that run for public office, people that have to work for (and wrestle) Angelina Jolie.
We have such a job and at times it has felt like we were wrestling Angelina Jolie
in a alligator suit inside a nuclear power plant on election day!!!!!
(wow is that a visual!)
However, the rest of the time its great. It must be, since we are at it again for the 3rd year. This
year we have taken the event to a new high for bands, days and to a new venue that will keep
you, the beloved ticket holder, dry, cool and entertained in a way like never before. Now, some
have questioned the move (people that like to tussle with gators mostly) they have asked
WHY?, well to them I ask....where you there last year for the MUD FEST?
So, we have relocated to the Melbourne Auditorium and grounds for 80s in the park 2015. We
have a huge inside stage for the head-liners with padded seats, AC and one great roof!!!! Out-
side we have a second stage for the tributes and smaller acts, vendors, food court and other festival stuff.
It is really the best of both worlds. In addition to the VIP after parties (of which
there are 3 this year Friday-Sunday) we have added a 3 night after party (included in the reserved
seat price) with more entertainment than you can shake a stick at (if your into that sort of
thing). And to shake things up more, we have moved the hotel to the Crown plaza Ocean front
and added a opening party Thursday night from 6pm till midnight with EVEN MORE
WHY? Because we are givers!!!! It's what we do.
So we hope you’ll join us and enjoy this years trip back in time. As always we would like to
thank our sponsors, vendors and ticket holders for helping us to bring this event off each year
and to pin Angelina Jolie to the mat!.
