Manchester's iconic music festival

Parklife Festival is one of the UK's most popular and famous weekend music festivals, laying on a programme of diverse and cutting-edge music inside Manchester's Heaton Park.

Now at the forefront of the north west's music scene, Parklife teams up with some of the region's and the UK's most renowned clubbing brands, such as Resident Advisor, Chibuku, Circus and Bugged Out!, inviting each of them to come and put their unique stamp on the festival.

This year's Parklife will include sets from indie trio The xx, former Oasis man Liam Gallagher and grime icon Skepta, as well as N.E.R.D, Lorde, Bonobo and many more across a weekend that will also feature quirky chill-out zones, live interactive art, a funfair, magicians, crazy installations, cabaret and busking stages.

2018's festival will also welcome a brand new stage: The Valley. A huge production that will resemble a city, and inspired by cult sci-fi hit Bladerunner and downtown Tokyo, the imposing structure will feature sets from A$AP Rocky, Carl Cox, Annie Mac, Giggs and more.
