GARY Neville will make his DJ debut at a festival this summer.

The former Manchester United captain will be joined by Northwich’s own Tim Burgess, lead singer of The Charlatans.

The duo will take to the stage at Kendall Calling for a ‘back to back’ DJ set.

Burgess told the BBC: “I’m very excited about the prospect of DJing with Gary – he’s got great taste in music.

“The last time we shared a stage was when he joined The Charlatans on guitar.

“I can’t promise we’ll be doing any songs together but there might be an impromptu singalong at some point.”

Neville’s turn to music is his latest post-football venture.

He recently appeared on BBC’s hit business show, Dragons Den, as a guest on the panel.

This comes alongside his regular commentary role with Sky Sports and a portfolio of business interests including a hotel and other property developments.

While his inclusion in the Kendal Calling lineup has grabbed lots of attention on social media, you’ll be shocked to find he isn’t going to be headlining.

That duty lies with fellow Mancunian Noel Gallagher who tops the bill alongside Paolo Nutini, The Streets, Paul Heaton with Rianne Downey, and Keane.

They will be joined by more than 120 other acts including pop trio Sugababes, the multi-talented Craig Charles, comedian Russell Howard and children's entertainers Dick and Dom.

Kendal Calling, August 1 to 4, is held at Lowther Deer Park in Cumbria.
