In addition, for some inspiration we will take a look at the entertainment of the 80's, also known as the Decade of Decadence.

 

Entertainment at the Decade of Decadence

 

In both the West and the rest of the world, the 1980s saw a major shift in social life. This shifted from a more conservative standard of living in which the more extravagant influences of the 60s and 70s were clearly visible to an era of hedonism and mass consumption. It is no coincidence that several prominent economists summarise the "everything is possible, everything is allowed" attitude of the 80s into five words: "Get rich, borrow, spend, enjoy " For that reason, the 80's are sometimes called the Decade of Greed.

 

This general mindset naturally emerged in the entertainment of that time. Among other things, the concept of the music video was born in the 80's, causing pop music to undergo an enormous transformation. Artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Duran Duran, became world famous for their revolutionary clips. In the cinematic field, the careers of many film stars were also launched in the 1980s, including Nicolas Cage, Patrick Swayze, and Demi Moore. Think of cult films such as Dirty Dancing, St. Elmo's Fire, and Footloose. On television, series such as The A-Team, The Dukes of Hazzard, and Cheers were given the status of mega hits of the 1980s.

 

The 80s were also the age of the arcades and the first, real video games. If you have seen the series Stranger Things (2016), then you immediately know what we are talking about. The reason that we also want to include the video games is that they form an inexhaustible source of inspiration for parties and events with the theme of the 80s. World-famous games such as Super Mario Bros, Pac-Man, and Tetris all came out in the 1980s and are still popular today in one form or another.

 

In a similar way, the very recognizable fashion from the 80's is also a good source of inspiration for an authentic 80's party. After all, what is a striking theme party without a suitable dress code? In terms of hair styles, the eighties were dominated by more pronounced hairstyles, including the perm, the mat, and the so-called big hair, the voluminous hairstyle that was, among others, worn by stars such as Dolly Parton, the men of Mötley Crüe, and Madonna. That is also a perfect excuse for your guests to immerse themselves in all kinds of over-the-top wigs.

 

In terms of clothing and accessories trends, the 80's were characterized by, among other things, shoulder pads, denim jackets, and leg warmers, while the world-famous sunglasses brand Ray-Ban came up during this period with the Aviators, made popular with the movie Top Gun with Tom Cruise, and the Wayfarer, which were frequently seen in films such as Risky Business and series such as Miami Vice. In other words, for putting together an original, crazy dress code for the party or event that you are going to organize, you are in the right place with the 80's theme.

 

If you decide to book a 80s themed party, we will be happy to help you dress up the event to add a touch of real nostalgia. This way we can book a professional tribute band for you that brings a varied set list with 80's hits, but we are also happy to help you find the latest decorative details to give your party the finishing touch. It mainly depends on what you have in mind for the occasion, because when booking an 80's party your input is key. What we offer is the opportunity to get some help in making your wishes and ideas a reality.
