All the people…so many people and they all go hand in hand, hand in hand to their Parklife Weekender this 9th and 10th June. Well, at least they will be after a fantastic line-up for this year’s festival in Manchester, taking place again this year at Platt Fields Park. Main stage headliners the Flaming Lips will bring with them their fantastic live show, which always includes frontman Wayne Coyne’s zorbing over the crowd. It’s also been at least 2 years since we have been lucky enough to have Dizzee Rascal’s presence at a festival, so a return this summer at Parklife is sure to be a fantastic way to end your weekend of partying in the northern musical capital.

Joining these festival big hitters on the main stage are folk rockers Noah and the Whale (pictured above). And with the folk/rock genre picking up, with Ben Howard on the scene it won’t be a surprise if these guys draw a considerable crowd while warming up for the Flaming Lips. But if the main stage isn’t where you feel it’s going to be happening over the weekend, then have no fear as Nero will be headlining the Metroplex stage with a live set that is sure to get people moving at the end of the day. They’re joined by Pendulum (DJ Set), Justice and Radio1’s weeknight evening presenter Zane Lowe, so anyone with a love of electronic beats and dubstep will be sure to have it to their hearts at Parklife.

Full weekend tickets, for both Saturday and Sunday, are £64.50 including booking fee. Saturday or Sunday only tickets are £38.50 each including booking fee. For more information on tickets and more acts as they’re announced, visit the official Parklife Web site.
