Preview: Manchester’s Parklife Festival

Parklife Festival

Now in its third year, Manchester’s Parklife Festival is back bigger and better than ever. It’s phenomenal success has seen the festival grow year-on-year since its inception and resulted in Platt Fields Park no longer being big enough to accommodate the event.

2013 will see a wider spread of music and entertainment including larger dance arenas, more spectacular production and many hidden nooks and crannies ensuring the biggest Parklife Weekender ever staged.

The festival is relocating to Manchester’s Heaton Park. Widely regarded as one of the premier outdoor venues in the north, and has hosted legendary concerts from the likes of The Stone Roses and Oasis.
