Parklife Weekender’s in its fourth year now, but will see a location shift from Platt Fields Park to another place just under ten miles further north. One of Manchester’s big music events will now be taking place in Heaton Park, as the organisers look to cope with the year-on-year growth the festival’s seen since 2009.
“Biggest and best festival yet” is the plan, and adding The Temper Trap – along with ‘larger dance arenas’ and a ‘more spectacular’ production quality – should go some way to helping that aim be reached. The two-day festival is £69.50 for the weekend, on the 8th/9th of June.
Brit Awards-nominated Plan B, Rita Ora and Jessie Ware – along with the likes of The Maccabees, Example and Delphic – will be appearing across the weekend on Parklife Weekender’s main stage. Sunday looks set to be the better day for the Now Wave stage, with The Horrors and Everything Everything leading the billing.
