Share This Article:
Now in its 9th year, Manchester’s leading festival Parklife, returns with another unrivalled line-up.
Held on the 9th and 10th June at Heaton Park, the two-day event welcomes The XX, Skepta and N.E.R.D as headliners, as well as a homecoming performance from Liam Gallagher, who makes his first appearance at Heaton Park since Oasis’ famous gigs from 2009.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Parklife will also see performances from Mercury prize winner Sampha, as well as Lorde, A$AP Rocky, Chvrches and Everything Everything.
Historically, the festival has been at the forefront of dance and chart events in the UK, having given valuable stage-time to the likes of Disclosure, Rudimental and Clean Bandit. Keeping in trend with its often current line-ups, Parklife also welcomes a stacked DJ bill, including Eric Prydz and Annie Mac.
A festival that truly embodies the impassioned spirit of Manchester, each edition has sold out year on year and boasts an impressive total of 16 arenas spread across two days of music as well as a VIP arena that offers exclusive attractions and special guest DJs.
As one of the largest municipal parks in Europe, Heaton Park has hosted a wealth of stellar festivals in its time, and Parklife 2018 is bound to be one for the history books.
Parklife Festival runs 9th-10th June. Tickets are available here.
