One of Preston’s most legendary beer festivals returns to the city this Thursday.

The 12th annual Continental Beer Festival is back on May 15 until Saturday May 17, with not one, but two beer halls, doubling the amount of cask ales and ciders that will be available.

The northwest’s finest rockabilly / punk act the Hyperjax headline the Saturday, and the two days also see sets from Preston soul/funk act Templebys, Glasgow psych rockers The Fast Camels, The Kausters, 1.21 Gigawatts, The Remedy, Djangobop, and more rockabilly from Doug Perkins and the Spectaculars.

There’ll also be DJ sets from local collective The Funky Onion.

Add to this some Morris dancers and an Open Mic session in the Snug on the Thursday and you have the makings for a great weekend.
