Bright colours and over-the-top styles, and everything from the launch of the iconic Rubik Cube to the birth of gaming with the first video game consoles, Tetris and Pacman. From Spanish TV character Chanquete's boat to The Crystal Ball and Knight Rider. From Spanish pop stars like Alaska y Los Pegamoides and Radio Futura to Queen and Michael Jackson's Thriller.

To celebrate a great decade, the Time Capsule is back at ANTIK Almoneda, a fair organised by IFEMA MADRID from 6 to 14 April. It will be a tribute to icons from our teenage years, taking us back to the days we remember with such nostalgia. Musical tributes, exhibitions of vintage objects, super-retro games, and special karaoke, dance, and bingo sessions will all feature.

For nine days, the Time Capsule will take visitors on a trip to the past in an event full of music. There will be tributes to bands like Radio City by the duet Spirit of the Sun, Mecano Tributo by Valentín Rus and Nochentera by the Madrid Gay Men's Choir. In addition, there will be eighties DJ Sessions with vinyl records courtesy of Juan Maltés, Pablo Pueblo, Jesús Bombín and Sr Rojo, with seven sessions that will have everyone rocking up and down the aisles to the best hits of the decade. You can also sign up for “Maldito Karaoke” sessions to show your vocal star power and join in with  “Bailaloloco”, with eighties music to show off your moves.

Exhibition of icons of the time

Visitors to Antik Almoneda can see an exhibition of eighties objects. The Vintage Company will collaborate with pieces from the beginnings of the Star Wars saga, in addition to many other objects typical of the times that will bring back memories of watershed moments. Younger generations will be able to discover all the innovations experienced by their parents and be part of the experience with the retro games area: pinball, table football and arcade machines.


The Time Capsule will also feature an unmissable new experience: Bingo & Wine gives everyone a unique opportunity to win and experience the highs that come with victory, so it could be you shouting Bingo!" "House", "Line", or "Yes"! The prize will be a surprise from the famous Drag Queen Chumina Power.
