Preview: Parklife Festival

By on Monday, 22nd March 2010 at 3:30 pm

Look to the North for one hell of a dance party early this summer. The inaugural Parklife Festival will take place Saturday 12 June at Platt Fields Park, Fallowfield, Manchester. There’s much to celebrate as the park celebrates its 100th year since its official opening as a public park after its purchase by the city in 1908.

TGTF favourites Friendly Fires have been announced as the headliner, and if this 6music report holds water, it will be one of the few chances to see the St. Albans band in performance this summer. Also set to perform are German electrohouse duo Booka Shade, Calvin Harris (DJ set), Simian Mobile Disco (DJ set), Vitalic, Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke (playing a solo set) and Four Tet, among many others.

Early bird tickets have already sold out but standard priced day tickets for Saturday only are available for £29.50 each at various outlets. As one of the event’s sponsors are the people behind the fabulous Manchester Warehouse Project, there are also a limited number of ‘weekend’ tickets available for entry to Saturday’s festivities as well as the previous night’s party presented by MWP featuring Ian Brown as the headliner. These are on sale through Ticketline for £55 each.

After the cut: the scheduled full line-up for both days.

Preview: Rockness Festival

By on Monday, 22nd February 2010 at 12:00 pm

Updated: 26 February 2010

Yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard of Glastonbury: but have you heard of Rockness Festival? Started in 2006, this festival has been dubbed “the most beautiful festival in the world” and “the only festival with its own monster” because it takes place at yep, you guessed it, Loch Ness. (Or rather Clunes Farm, Dores, near Inverness, Scotland.) This year’s edition will go on 11-13 June and features the headliners dance DJ/producer Fatboy Slim, dub / house / electronica masters Leftfield. And in a stroke of booking genius, the festival will close out Sunday with a headlining doubleheader featuring American rockers the Strokes (in their first live appearance in the UK in 4 years, they are working on a new album) and Vampire Weekend (pictured above), hot on the heels of a sold-out UK tour and the recent release of their second album, ‘Contra’.

Other great acts so far announced include Doves, Ian Brown, Friendly Fires, French electronica artist Vitalic, Paris act Club 75 (making their UK live debut) and hip hop duo dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip (of the current single ‘Get Better’). Radio1 has been announced as the official radio partner of this year’s festival, with the station’s DJs Annie Mac and Rob da Bank hosting their own tented stages. All in all, this sounds like it’s shaping up to be one of the most exciting of the smaller UK festivals!

Tickets range in price from £55 for a single Friday non-camping ticket to £180 for a 3-day VIP camping ticket. For more information on prices and where to buy your tickets, please visit the Rockness Festival Web site.

The current scheduled line-up as is available after the cut.
