Parklife Weekender is Manchester’s biggest independent music festival that focuses on multiple diverse music genres including indie, dance, electronic and hip-hop. In 2010 a number of groups including The Warehouse Project decided to jointly organise the Parklife Weekender. The Warehouse Project is a series of club nights in Greater Manchester originally started by Sacha Lord Marchionne and Sam Kandel. There is speculation why the event was named Parklife, many believe it references the rivalry between Oasis and Blur and their song Parklife that Oasis sung at the 1996 BRIT Awards when they won the best British Album award over Blur.
Starting off in Platt Fields Park, the event grew out of the Mad Ferret Festival. It was originally a 1-day 20,000 capacity festival, which can now host 75,000 people during its 2-day event, with 3 outdoor and 9-tented stages to choose from. It boasts the best of the UK’s up and coming DJs, producers and clubbing brands. Strolling through the Parklife Weekender will bring an extrasensory, animalistic experience with performers roaming whilst you listen to headliners such as Frank Ocean, The 1975 and Fatboy Slim.
On June 10-11, Parklife Weekender will begin in Heaton Park, Manchester. Showcasing the best line up of Drum and Bass, House, Tech and Dubstep if that’s what you’re into. It’s a fairly new festival in comparison to the more established T in the Park and Wireless. Yet, the demand becomes more apparent every year for excited festivalgoers, encouraging organisers to expand and cover most of Heaton Park. If you’re going you can expect more than just your favourite music, live interactive art and crazy installations are a big part of the scene at Parklife. During your travels you will also find cabaret and busking stages along with dance troupes. You will come across comedy sketches, magicians, and theatre performances, and when you need to relax there are themed chill out zones for you to refuel.
