Parklife Weekender June7th/8th Heaton Park, Manchester

Snoop Dogg, Foals, Disclosure, SBTRKT, and Katy B, are just some of the acts announced at the festival in Heaton Park, Manchester on June 7th / 8th.

Expect more names to be announced leading up to the big day.

Once again the weekend festival’s line-up spans genres of dance, indie, pop, and hip-hop in what will be the festival’s fifth year in existence and second time at Heaton Park.

Kendrick Lamar spear-heads the wealth of Hip-Hop acts that are scattered across the bill throughout the weekend. 2013 success stories Pusha T (who dropped the best Hip-Hop tune of last year) and Danny Brown appear while Flying Lotus plays twice as he brings the elusive Captain Murphy to Manchester.

Pusha T- Numbers On The Boards

Elsewhere, Maribou State, Cyril Hahn, Bondax and many others leading the way in forward thinking electronic music will be in attendance and the event looks to expand on the foundations it built last year.

I’ve put together a handy playlist for you.
Foals- Out of the Woods (Kulkid Remix)

Warpaint- Biggy

Maribou State- Tongue

Chromeo- Come Alive

Jon Hopkins- Collider

Mount Kimbie- Home Recording

Weekend tickets are priced at £79.50.
