Carl Barat, Reverend for Manchester’s In The City

Both will appear on a celebrity panel discussion

Dirty Pretty ThingsCarl Barat and Reverend and the Makers’ Jon McClure lead the latest additions to this weekend’s In The City conference.

The pair will appear at the Manchester music event at a panel discussion dubbed ‘The Importance Of Being Idols’.

Joining them will be New Order bassist Peter Hook and musician Steve White for a session aiming to “address the dumbing down of the use of the word celebrity while discussing how to stay creative at the same time”.

The session takes place on Monday (October 6) at the Midland Hotel.

Also joining the line-up of guests is acclaimed film-maker Dick Carruthers, showing never-before-seen footage from a private Oasis gig shot in front of 100 people at Black Island Studios.
