HUGE GIG TO BE STAGED – CELEBRATING PRESTON’S AWARD WINNING NIGHTLIFE

Prestfest, the city’s celebration of its award-winning night time economy, returns on Saturday 8th July with international performers topping the bill.

An arena is being created on the Flag Market and will feature sets from Tom Zanetti and Fatman Scoop; supported by a bill of local DJ’s.

Prestfest, staged by the city’s Business Improvement District (BID), has been arranged in partnership with the city’s bars, clubs and pubs and will be staged as part of the ‘Preston At Night’ campaign.

The event takes place between 7.00pm & 11.30pm on July 8th with tickets on sale from Friday 24th March at 0900 hrs. First release tickets will cost just £5.00 but are limited…

Club favourite Tom Zanetti, who performs his huge set across the globe, will headline the event. Famous for his lyrical ability, Zanetti has amassed almost 16m plays on his YouTube channel alone and is currently one of the hottest musical artists in the UK.

Joint-headlining with Zanetti is American Grammy Award Winner Fatman Scoop. Scoop, a staple of the club scene since the 90’s, will entertain the crowd with his high-energy set, which will include his international mega-hit, ‘Be Faithful’.

Mark Whittle BID manager said: ‘The city’s night time economy is the strongest it has ever been, together with the city’s venues we’ve organised this huge event to promote Preston and it’s leisure offer. Prestfest will provide a great reason to get together in the summer and celebrate our Purple Flag status -Lancashire’s only award-winning destination for a night out’.

The event, which will feature state-of-the art production, will be a ticket only affair and open to those aged 18 and over.

Leigh Sweetman, chair of the city’s Preston At Night group said: ‘Last year’s Prestfest event laid strong foundations for an annual celebration of this kind. We’ve been working closely as a group of venues to make sure this year’s event is something Preston has never experienced before.

We’re inviting people from Preston and beyond to come and enjoy the event, our bars, restaurants, pubs & clubs and to see exactly why we are an award-winning city’.

 

Local DJ’s including Des Grant, who performs his specialist soul, Motown and R&B set across the country, will warm the crowds up with classics ahead of the special guests taking to the stage later in the evening.

Tickets are available from just £5.00 at: www.prestonatnight.co.uk/prestfest
