Parklife Festival is an eclectic music festival weekender in Manchester. Having carved out a prominent reputation in the UK's North West music scene, plus a huge student following, the Parklife gone from strength to strength.
Last year's edition saw The Chemical Brothers, Major Lazer, Ice Cube and Years & Years lead a diverse journey through the genres, while chill out zones, live interactive art, a funfair, magicians, crazy installations, cabaret and busking stages make boredom impossible.
With backing from renowned clubbing brands Resident Advisor, Chibuku and Bugged Out!, you can be sure the house and techno grooves will be flowing. Names such as Four Tet and Nina Kraviz are just two of many who have hit the decks in over the last few years.
Heaton Park, one of Manchester's largest open spaces, has become a focal part of Manchester's cultural tradition, having hosted a number of iconic gigs and festivals over the years, such as Oasis and the Stone Roses.Expand Map
