The highlight of Manchester’s summer music scene, Parklife, takes place this weekend with a line-up packed full of huge headline acts and big-name DJs. Couldn’t get your hands on tickets? Enter, The Oast House.
Following four successful bank holiday festival events this spring, the Spinningfields stalwart has announced a Jägermeister takeover this weekend, and the herbal spirit brand is bringing the impressive line-up from its Parklife stage along to continue the party in the city centre.
Headlining the event is legendary garage duo Artful Dodger, who will take to the stage on the terrace at 11pm on Saturday night. Guests can also expect to see DJs Majestic, 220 Kid and Charlotte Van de Peer playing at the venue, which was crowned ‘Leading Bar’ at last year’s This Is Manchester Awards.
The event at The Oast House will kick off on Friday 9 June from 6pm – midnight, continuing at 2:30pm – midnight on Saturday 10 June and 2:30pm – 8:30pm on Sunday 11 June, with a jam-packed line-up of musicians playing live including bands, solo artists, duos and DJs.
It’s completely free to attend on a first come, first served basis and with temperatures forecast to reach 28 degrees, the venue recommends getting there early to avoid disappointment – The Oast House’s terrace is a top spot for city dwellers when the sun shines, especially on Parklife weekend.
The Oast House’s unique street food menu will also be on offer for those looking to line their stomachs during the festivities, featuring signature dishes such as Buffalo Chicken Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Bury Black Pudding, Scotch Eggs and Northern Poutine. Vegan options will include the Plant Based Burger and Vegan Meatball Protein Bowl.
The Parklife parties at The Oast House are a must-visit for music fans looking to carry on the party after Parklife, and those who couldn’t quite make it, so get down to Spinningfields early this weekend in order to secure your spot.
