PREVIEW: Parklife Weekender, Manchester


Parklife Weekender now in its third year running have announced a superb line-up for this year’s festival, which takes place at Manchester’s Platt Fields Park on the 9th and 10th of June. Although it has been confirmed that this will be its final year running at Manchester’s Platt Fields Park, Parklife Weekender has gone to great lengths to ensure people go home at the end with unforgettable memories. With many acts confirmed such as Justice, The Flaming Lips, Noah And The Whale, Crystal Castles and Dizzee Rascal surely this is a festival not to be missed!

Lasting only two days and costing a mere £64.50 for full weekend tickets that definitely is cheap as chips for a festival! Host to a wide range of musical types across all stages Parklife Weekender also showcases some of the up and coming artists with acts in indie, electronic and pop music there is something for everybody to enjoy.

The Flaming Lips a neo-psychedelic band from Oklahoma will be headlining Saturday night followed by rapper Dizzee Rascal (Who needs no introduction) as Sunday night’s headliner. If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite the smaller stages such as the Now Wave and The Metroplex will also be host to amazing acts; Django Django, Totally Enormous Extint Dinosaurs, Ghostpoet, Fake Blood, and Radio1’s presenter Zane Lowe DJing on the Metroplex Stage on Saturday!

Joining The Flaming Lips on the main stage will be indie folk band Noah And The Whale as well as being joined by a fun act The Cuban Brothers which I’ve seen at many festivals and always a good laugh. Having sold out in previous years it is surely to sell out yet again for its final year. So make sure you grab your full weekend tickets while you can and come and say goodbye to the last Parklife at Platt Fields.

Full weekend tickets cost £64.50 including booking fee. Saturday or Sunday only tickets cost £38.50 each including booking fee
