“The city centre hasn’t had a weekend of music events and concerts, for a long time and we are hoping that The Weekender proves a popular attraction which can return to the city in the future.

“I’d urge people to grab their tickets now, as we don’t want them to miss out on what is expected to be an amazing weekend in Preston.”

On Saturday, some of the biggest dance acts of the 90s and 00s will be performing at the Ministry of Sound 90s Takeover - Hacienda hero, Graeme Park will take to the decks, joined by production pioneers, the Freemasons, alongside the awesome Amanda Wilson.

The legendary Jam created a legacy that cements them as one of the all-time great British bands. The classic lineup consisted of Paul Weller, Rick Buckler and Bruce Foxton, who carried on their legacy by forming From The Jam, with Buckler.

Liverpool-based Space are a multi-platinum selling band famed for their quirky, uplifting indie-pop tunes, including Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, and Avenging Angels.
