If you love INDIE/ALT MUSIC…

Most people will say that Parklife is the festival of techno music and nothing much else. What those people haven’t done is checked the lineup from previous years. Artists such as Foals, Friendly Fires, Everything Everything and The Flaming Lips have played the Main-Stage at the festival.

If you love POP…

Chart music may struggle to find its home in a festival environment but Parklife welcomes the popular tunes to the green grass of Heaton Park throughout the weekend. Although the festival lacks a great deal of acts associated with pop music, they make up for those gaps through the big names they have onboard.
