A little rain didn't stop fans enjoying Jilted Generation pay tribute to the Prodigy at this year's BAck 2.

Back 2 Festival returns to Catton Park in Derbyshire next summer, for a seventh year of transporting fans down memory lane, with a line-up boasting artists from the ‘80s, ‘90s and ‘00s, including headliners Blue, and old school anthem dancefloor-fillers Cascada and Basshunter.

Blue will top the bill following their huge 14-date 20th anniversary tour. With countless awards under their belts, including the TMF Award for Best Breakthrough Artist/Newcomer, and the Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act.

With many more top of the pops artists set to be announced , this first phase line-up also includes noughties heavyweights 911 and A1, Welsh comedy hip hop group Goldie Looking Chain and electronic dance music duo Phatts & Smalls!

With a total of four stages, two are brand new for the 2023 edition. Firstly: The Secret Rave Arena and the second, new-for-2023 stage is led by theme rather than music: Thursday is The 100% Eighties Party, Friday hosts Pop Confessions, on Saturday it’s The Sh*t Wedding Disco and to see off the festival in style Sunday is Back 2 the Future (Future Classics).

Beyond the music, there is plenty of entertainment for everyone to enjoy – from the Retro Gaming tent by Kapow bringing the best arcade and video games from the 80’s, 90’s and the 00’s, to Al Snow Wrestling, who will be performing 80s and 90s wrestling shows across the weekend in the main arena.

Catton Park, located next to local gem Catton Hall, is in the heart of the National Forest and equidistant from London, Manchester and Norwich, making it the ideal location for festival goers from across the UK.

Day tickets are on sale from just £29.99. For a short time only, customers can book a four-night weekend camping ticket for just £89.99 and a three-night ticket for £79.99.
