Paul Taylor, a Burnley local and founder of the Retro brand under which the festival is set to take place, will also be performing his renowned set, and spoke of his excitement for what should be an exceptional night.

“We will be transforming Vogue with a huge club makeover with amazing special effects and state of the art lighting,” said Paul.

“Alongside Danny [Howard] will be Cream legend and ex-Radio One presenter, Seb Fontaine, and I will be performing a full-on Retro set for a mammoth 4 hours.”

As well as the big-hitters oin the Main Room at Vogue, an additional back room will be opened up on the night, complete with a newly installed large sound system and full lights package to house some of the town’s local DJs.

The ‘Local Heroes’ room, as it is being dubbed, will play host to a roster of Burnley DJs who have supported the venue, helping to promote new concepts, allowing them to showcase their prodigious skills.

“I’m a Burnley lad and the show had to go on!” said Taylor.
