Manchester is a town in the UK that sure knows how to party, but no one does it better than the Parklife Festival. The annual music event only continues to flourish each year, and has come from being an intimate homegrown festival to one of the best in the region.
Originally a showcase of the finest underground DJ’s from around the world, the event has expanded to include other dance-loving genres such as hip hop, pop, rock, and grime played in the several stages. The incredible lineup on several stages is complemented by attractions that immerse the senses in wonder: from roaming performances and entertainers to interactive art and insane installations, the event is guaranteed to be epic in every level. But the star of the show at the Parklife Festival has been, and always will be, the music in itself.
Heaton Park becomes a mecca for music fans each year during the festival. Past highlights have included Liam Gallagher, The XX, Disclosure, Snoop Dogg, Nas, and The Chemical Brothers. For 2019 and beyond, we can expect the event producers to continue blowing us away with a stellar lineup so stay tuned!
‘The UK is known for its wide range of music festivals, but the Parklife Festival is now at the forefront thanks to the renowned experiences it delivers.’

The Parklife Festival happens at the beautiful Heaton Park, famous for being the hometown of legendary British band Oasis. There are weekend tickets available for general admission and VIP.
Heaton Park is connected to efficient public transportation options, particularly the Bury Metro Line. It is also near the M60 ring road, making it convenient for those who are traveling to the festival by car. Getting to Heaton Park is simple via the Metrolink; just board the train headed for Bury then get off at the Heaton Park stop. The Metrolink operates at a regular service throughout the festival, but if you need to get back to the city center past 6PM then you’ll need to stop at Bowker Vale.
A shuttle for festival goers will also be made available for added convenience.
Heaton Park is just 5 miles away from the city center, which is filled with lots of accommodation options for every budget. From cozy bed and breakfasts to hotels and hostels, finding accommodations of your choice and budget is easy.
