Stacie is one of several DJs playing throughout the day that will be playing Mod, R’n’B, Ska, Britpop, Freakbeat and plenty of Northern Soul from 2pm until late. Admission is FREE.

“The Mod scene is as strong as ever in Manchester and has now moved onto social network sites such as Twitter”, said Jim McGuinn, one of the organisers. “We’ve made some great friends on Twitter and in fact, we’ve used Twitter to book the DJs, organise and promote this event.”
