Parklife festival is now only a few weeks away and we prepare you with an itinerary of activities that you really cannot afford to miss at this year’s event. Taking place in Manchester’s Heaton Park on June 6 & 7, the two day event promises to pack in one hell of a party so follow our recommendations as to not to leave yourself short of time.

1. Eat and Be Merry

Parklife will host a huge selection of street food vendors this year to whet your physical appetites once you have sufficiently had your musical fill. They will be hosting Friday Food Fight which has vendors including Burger & Lobster and Almost Famous. Now everybody lift those gourmet burritos high as Ben Howard performs ‘The Fear’.

2. Late Night Parties

Parklife and its organisers The Warehouse Project are known for their world famous late night parties. There is very little information available so far however we recommend keeping your ear to the ground during the day as there are events planned for Saturday and Sunday evening with a whole host of acts from across the weekend likely to make appearances.

3. Theatre

There is assured to be a whole host of arts and theatre performers for those who need a melodic break across the weekend. Offering much needed variation, Manchester will host world renowned performance troupes, artists and interactive experiences so do not forget to step out from the haze of the Big Top from time to time.

4. Disclosure 

The duo may seem to be quite an obvious headline choice, yet the brothers have been busily working in the studio on the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut ‘Settle’ and Parklife is likely to be an opportunity to hear some of the new offerings alongside ‘Latch’ and ‘You & Me’. The boys bring a party like no other and will be the perfect warm up for a surrealistic, hedonistic Saturday night at Parklife.

5. Manchester

If you have the opportunity, take a day or two to visit the vibrant city of Manchester before the festival kicks off. The atmosphere promises to be electric and there are many opportunities to eat, drink, shop and party to welcome in the weekend of musical goodness.
