Retro Events will team up with JBM Music this summer to host a very special outdoor festival at Burnley’s Towneley Park, bringing together an incredible line-up alongside huge 90s brand ‘90s Baby’. The massive 10 hour party, taking place on Saturday 4th July, will see a gigantic billing of artists spread across several genres perform across three huge stages, with ‘Retro In The Park’ marking Retro’s first ever Burnley festival.
Bringing both ‘Retro’ and ‘90s Baby’ back, and much bigger than ever before, the latest brainchild of events juggernauts JBM Music will combine the largest array of talent from the North West with a carefully curated ensemble of the world’s most popular acts and local superstars. The festival will follow a trilogy of huge ‘Retro’ shows at Manchester’s Albert Hall in recent times, with the event series surging in popularity thanks to the stunning production level of the parties, and insane line-ups.
With ‘Retro In The Park’ providing no exception to the rule, Ibiza legend Roger Sanchez will spearhead proceedings in Arena 1, fresh from another season on the sunset strip with a series of summer performances at Balearic institution Cafe Mambo. The ‘Another Chance’ producer will be joined by a huge (TBA) headliner, in addition to further sets from Graeme Park, Cream resident Tall Paul, Paul Taylor, James Semphie and Matty Robinson.
With 90s Baby invading Arena 2 at the festival, nostalgia lovers and party people alike can expect to hear a flurry of the biggest anthems from yesteryear as Scottish electronic act Nightcrawlers (‘Push The Feeling On’) headline an eclectic billing which will also herald eagerly anticipated live performances from one of the biggest selling dance acts of the 90s – N-Trance – and chart-topping vocalist Sonique, the mastermind behind UK number #1 single ‘It Feels So Good’. With further performances across the day from Technotronic (MC Eric), and electronic collective K-Klass, the Arena is already shaping up to be one of the most in-demand areas of the festival, as Alex Party, JX, Happy Clappers, Katherine Ellis, Nick Coulson and Mark Johnstone round off a simply sensational roll call.
Transporting party-goers back to an era filled with timeless hands-in-the-air anthems in Arena 3’s ‘Angels Reunion’ takeover, a true feel-good celebration of music will be led by the sounds of Stu Allen, with Rob Tissera and Matt Bell also on hand to place a firm emphasis on a care-free evening of unmatched euphoria. Bringing a special selection of guests, including Grant Holmes, Marc Mackender, Liam Boult and Mick Clarke, this arena will ensure the raucous crowd reach fever pitch levels of excitement to round off what is truly shaping up as one of summer 2020’s most unmissable events.
