It’s time to break out your jelly shoes, hair crimper, and shoulder pads, the Barossa Valley is going back to the 80’s!

­It was the era of WHAM!, Blondie and an up-and-coming Madonna, and for one night only it’s coming back to Peter Lehmann Wines in the Barossa Valley.

Bring your friends and get ready for Australia’s biggest 80’s party. With a live band singing nothing but the best classic 80’s hits, the Big 80’s Party is a chance to get together for some mass karaoke.

The Music

The evening starts with retro party hits mixed by ripper DJs Jakie J and Adrian Zac. Get into the swing of things as the DJs rock it out, with a gnarly set, supported by a montage of 80’s dance, fashion, TV and music videos.

After you’ve grabbed yourself a drink and laid your claim to the best piece of grass in the house, get ready for the live 80’s tribute band New Romantics. The iconic Adelaidean band have made a name for themselves as Australia’s premier 80’s tribute band. With a dynamic front man, killer guitar work, and awesome sequencing skills, the band will impress with awesome renditions of the best pop music the 80’s offered. From Duran Duran to ABC, Billy Idol to WHAM! they will get you on your feet and bouncing. You might even catch a cabbage patch or two!

Dancing it out can be exhausting, so catch your breath with an 80’s montage, specially made to get the nostalgia flowing. The flashback montage will light up the lawns with the best movies, news, fashion and music hits from the decade.

Got your breath back? Good! Cause the end of the party is drawing nearer, and we’re going out with a bang. Get ready for some MTV 1980’s Video Hits Mass-Karaoke. That song you’ve been dying to hear all night? Bet you it gets played now, cause we’ve got 2 hours of solid karaoke lined up and you will want to belt out every single note.

The Outfit

Now it simply wouldn’t be an 80’s Party if you didn’t dress the part. It’s no holds barred as long as it’s from the decade. We’re talking big hair and bright colours parachute pants and puffer jackets.

Why not revive more than just the fashion though? Stand out from the crowd with a character costume. Got a group of friends going? Become the Smurfs! Or, we’re sure you could find some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes around. You could even complete your look with a pizza from the on-site food vendors.

The Big 80’s Party at Peter Lehmann Estate is sure to be the biggest to date! What better way to kick off your summer than by rolling in nostalgia and jamming it out to the best of the 80’s. Tickets are still available, so grab yours not to avoid disappointment! The Big 80’s Party will be held at Peter Lehmann Wines on November 30th, 2019.

Missed out on tickets? Not in the Barossa for these dates? No worries! The Big 80’s Party is travelling around Australia, so get ready to partayyyyyy!
