Reggae Gone Viral is set to present the first annual Preston Music Festival.


The two-day event will take place at Riva Showbar in the city centre.

The festival will kick off at noon on Friday 25 August with a sound clash battle followed by live entertainment from 7pm. The night will feature some of the hottest musicians in the industry as well as rising indie talent.

The event continues on Saturday 26 August with an all-dayer that will bring together foodies, music lovers, and people of all ages.

Street food vendors and local restaurants will offer food and drink options, and there will be family-friendly activities such as a vendors market and a fan zone with games including a domino tournament.


The main attraction will be the evening concert starting at 7pm. A line-up of musicians – including local, national, and international acts – will perform into the early hours.

From classic tunes to the newest releases there will be a variety of musical styles performed.
