Electric Picnic organisers treated festival-goers to an 80s throwback on Saturday night.

The Electric Picnic throwback party attracted massive crowds last night as nostalgic music fans danced to classic tunes from the 80s and 90s.

But it went up a few notches when 80s British chart-toppers Bananarama took to the stage.

The po-dance trio were one of the first female bands to write their own songs, and went global with their synth-melody hits and it appears that they still have a big following, despite being a duo now.

Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin played all their biggest hits including Cruel Summer, Robert De Niro’s Waiting, and Love in the First Degree.

But the highlight was Venus and they brought up the crowd up on stage to help them belt out the lyrics.
