The lineup for the 80s Rewind Summer Festival in the United Kingdom is pretty stacked, so stacked that you might want to take a little trip.

Some of the acts on the 2016 lineup include, Rick Astley, Tony Hadley, Holly Johnson, Marc Almond, Leo Slayer, Hazell Dean and many more.

"Exploding onto the music scene in 1987, Rick Astley appeared fully developed with a rich tone and a soulful depth of delivery that belied his years," according to Rewind's site.

"Following the release of his debut single 'Never Gonna Give You Up,' the 21 year old became a pop sensation overnight.

Within 2 weeks of its release, the single reached Number 1 in the UK, and went on to hit Number 1 in 16 other countries worldwide. The following 2 years saw Rick continue to dominate the charts around the globe."

Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" has over 181 million views on YouTube showing just how much the hit has transcended time. Of course today, Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" has been used by the younger generation as a meme or link to troll their friends.

However, Astley will be performing his hit song when he takes the stage at the 80s Rewind Festival for those who are still in love with the track.
