Parklife celebrates its 10th anniversary
Parklife Festival has grown into one of the UK's most anticipated, annually showcasing a diverse lineup of underground dance and alternative music inside Manchester's Heaton Park. Parklife will celebrate its 10th anniversary in June 2020.
The Parklife 2020 lineup will feature a headline set from Tyler, The Creator, which will be his first solo UK headline show outside of London, and his first performance in the country for five years.
Joining him will be the likes of Skepta, Lewis Capaldi, Khalid, Jorja Smith, Giggs, Anderson .Paak, Robyn and many more, but where the festival really comes to life is on its numerous stages hosted by some of the country's most esteemed clubbing brands, with sets from the likes of Peggy Gou, Carl Cox and Andy C taking the limelight.
Having started out back in 2010 as the curiously named Mad Ferret Festival in Rusholme's Platt Fields Park, the festival rebranded to Parklife and moved to its current home in Heaton Park in 2012. It is now curated by a number of the UK's foremost dance brands, including fellow Manchester event series The Warehouse Project and has gone onto welcome some of music's biggest artists over the past decade, such as Liam Gallagher, Foals, Disclosure, The Chemical Brothers and The 1975.
And once the main festival has finished, festival-goers have historically had a number of after parties to choose from – named Afterlife – which have featured a selection of artists that performed during the main festival (as well as others) in venues across Manchester. Details of Afterlife are usually revealed closer to the festival.
