A recently opened Preston electronic music venue will be bringing international artists to the city over the coming months.

In:Libra opened its doors in Friargate at the end of 2019. Just two months in, the venue has lined up DJs and producers including the likes of PLO MAN from Berlin and Levon Vincent from New York.

Serena Baxter and Paul Harrison – who set up the club and also own Lonely People – are bringing the DJs here as part of their ambitions to see Preston’s nightlife develop and diversify. 

Serena said: “Preston is undergoing some really positive changes at the moment with an increase in both independent business and larger investment.

“It’s important that we provide a variety of reasons to visit Preston and a vibrant nightlife plays an important part in the mix. Recent additions to the city such as Plau and Baker Street are great examples.

“With this in mind we wanted to create a club that would be capable of attracting DJs who would not normally be heard outside of major cities.

“To achieve this we’ve invested a lot to create the right atmosphere with the sound system and lighting playing a major role. To be able to bring the likes of Levon Vincent, Linkwood, ASOK and DJ Nature to the city is a big step forward, and we already have exciting plans for the summer.”

Serena says In:Libra is not just focussing on international acts, but is also supporting local talent.

“Preston has a wealth of talented producers and DJs. We are working with the likes of Cottam, Brandon Vare and Bolts, who all hold residencies at the club.

“The support we’ve had from the start has been amazing, it’s been great to meet people who share the same vision as us and want to put our city on the clubbing map.”
