Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 13th May 2022

A festival dedicated to 90s and 00s dance music is taking place in Manchester next week. 

The gloriously nostalgic Flashback Festival will be headlined by the likes of Example, Tinchy Stryder, Tulisa, Judge Jules, Dave Pearce, Ultrabeat, and many more. 

The outdoor festival is calling all 90s kids, 00s lovers, dancefloor heroes and underground clubbers to head back to Platt Fields Park for a trip down memory lane.

Garage fans will get to see DJ Luck & MC Neat, Artful Dodger and Sweet Female Attitude back on stage again. 

The four stages will be hosted by brands such as Clubland, Hed Kandi, Back by Dope Demand, and Trance Anthems. 


The blasts from the past will continue – quite literally – in the food and drink side of things, with a stand dedicated to Tango Ice Blasts.

Manchester’s legendary street food trader Porky Pig, home of the Yorkshire pudding wrap, will also be on hand, alongside shisha, vegan food, and ice cream. 


As well as timeless tunes, Flashback Festival will have fairground rides like a big wheel, dodgems, Super Bowl and Twist rides. 

There’ll be four stages of music, a festival village, and a VIP area including a VIP bar.
