Preview: Parklife Weekender (07-08/06/14)


The fifth Parklife Festival is set to take place over two days in Manchester on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June 2014 in Heaton Park. The weekend-long event promises to be one of the best weekends imaginable with a stellar line-up, and up to 80,000 attendees.

The Parklife Weekender has firmly established itself as one of the North’s major festivals – and offering one of the most excellent line-ups this summer, it certainly has more than enough to draw people from every corner of the country to attend. For as little as £79.50, Parklife is undoubtedly one of the best value for money festivals in the UK, especially considering its incredible line-up that is absolutely crammed with the greats from each genre. Spanning from hip hop to rock and techno to folk, there is enough to entice absolutely anybody.

The diverse range of music on offer is exceptional; from indie-giants Bastille and Foals to dance favourites Disclosure and Cyril Hahn. This combined with Kendrick Lamar’s exclusive UK performance, and headlined by Snoop Dogg, it is sure to make for a truly memorable weekend.

Other highlights over the weekend include Katy B, Bipolar Sunshine, Clean Bandit, London Grammar, Jamie XX, Pusha T, Redlight, Maribou State… the list is endless. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is picking which excellent performer to see as you’re so spoiled for choice.

Located in a public park, this is not a camping festival, meaning the after-parties take place in Manchester’s city centre, providing a unique festival experience – you’re not stuck in a secluded field but you get the best of both worlds. In fact, its just been announced that the Warehouse Project, the organisers behind Parklife are offering no less than fifteen after-parties to get the full ‘Afterlife’ experience.

And there’s even more to Parklife than its astounding line up – last year featured a funfair with bungee rides, a ferris wheel, dodgems and a log flume.
