Where to get your music fix in Peterborough this weekend
The Secret Society of Something return this weekend, fresh off the heels of the outstanding Peterborough Pride event with the Ibiza Pride Festival at the Green Backyard on Saturday, from 12noon.
Ms Pink from KissFM will be headlining, supported by a number of local DJs, playing funk, disco, club classics, urban, house and DNB.
Expect bubble guns, and fancy decor at what is described as a celebration of peace, love, unity and respect, with the aim to create a rave for the LGBTQI+ community but with the inclusion of everyone.
Shane Appleyard from the organisers said: “This event was planned earlier in the year during lockdown, when we had planned our other summer events, as I felt strongly about making sure there was something going on for as many people as possible.
“The public’s attitude to the LGBTQI+ community has improved in recent decades but there is still some ways to go, and it means a lot to our society’s values and to me personally to be a part of continuing to push a message of peace, love, unity, respect, equality and inclusion between all people. If we can play a part in bringing the community and mainstream ravers together in joint celebration, I’m all for it.”
