Mancs were baffled over the weekend when legendary 90s characters Kevin & Perry popped up around town. 

They were spotted dancing away at a street rave in the Northern Quarter, making pals with a few policemen, and even gatecrashing a hen do. 

Delighted locals stopped to take selfies with the look-a-likes from Kevin & Perry Go Large, a cult comedy based on the Harry Enfield sketch Kevin the Teenager.

The pair were on the streets of Manchester helping to spread the word about Flashback Festival, a properly nostalgic music event heading to Platt Fields Park next month. 

Kevin & Perry will be the hosts of the huge event on 20 May, which will feature some of the biggest names in dance music history.


Their tour of Manchester on Saturday saw the duo pop up to the free street rave in the Northern Quarter, complete with signature uniform of bucket hats, cargo shorts and loud shirts. 

They even managed to hop on board a party bike tour, much to the surprise of the guests peddling away.


No one was safe from the hilarious pair, who were running all over town making their mark on the city. 

They even brought a huge speaker with them to get the people of Manchester to dance along to their tune “Big Girl (All I Wanna Do Is Do It)”, taken from the iconic Kevin & Perry film.

They’ll be getting up to their usual antics on the Main Stage at Flashback Festival next month, which will also feature a festival village, VIP area and after parties, plus the Clubland Big Top stage, the Back By Dope Demand Stage, and The Golden Stage. 


Headliners will include legends like Katy B, Fatman Scoop, Artful Dodger, D:Ream with a special 30 live showcase years set, and Sweet Female Attitude.

Flashback Festival will take place in Platt Fields Park on Saturday 20 May 2023.
