The 3rd Annual Like Totally ’80s Festival returns to Huntington State Beach on Saturday , May 12th. The ‘80s was a decade of bold style, colors, and silhouettes (permed hair included), with trends spanning ripped tights and leather to polished oversized blazers, parachute pants, and acid-washed jeans, but a few items have stood the test of time and even more are making their comeback in 2018. Let’s see your best costume for this all day event in Huntington Beach.
Featuring, The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2011 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare! They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence. Now the dubstep generation – notably, the acclaimed Darkstar, who cover the League’s 1982 B-side ‘You Remind Me Of Gold’ on their current album, North – have begun to pay homage to the original sound of Sheffield. But they’re about more than esoteric infiltration – there has been mainstream penetration, too, commensurate with a band who gave us the greatest ever Christmas Number 1 single with 1981/2’s ‘Don’t You Want Me’, who have had four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles and sold 20 million records worldwide.
