The wait is now over. After what’s felt like the longest month ever we yearn for those long, warm days having a jolly good time listening to live music. To cheer us up, Manchester’s renowned festival Parklife has announced its line-up 2023 with some impressive headline acts to get excited about.
One to put in the global festival calendar, Parklife returns to Heaton Park in Manchester between Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023 to raise the game once again. The festival weekend you tell your friends about over and over, Parklife is considered a must for anyone looking to have the biggest summer of their lives.
After a 2022 festival packed with iconic moments (from 50 Cent and Tyler, The Creator topping the bill to star-studded highlights from Megan Thee Stallion, Lewis Capaldi, Bicep (Live), Loyle Carner, Jamie XX, Peggy Gou, Chase & Status, Central Cee, Fred again.., Tems and many more) – 2023 promises to be the next evolution of all things Parklife. Festival-goers can expect the best from a line-up they’ve always wanted and experience that’ll leave you wanting more. According to Parklife organisers, nothing comes close.
Its roots in Manchester shine bright this year, with The 1975 headlining the festival and Manchester’s own Aitch playing a UK festival headline exclusive for a homecoming celebration you can only see at Parklife. Continuing his unstoppable rise, Fred again.. is set to headline Parklife in unforgettable fashion, whilst The Prodigy bring their live intensity to Heaton Park for their first festival performance since 2018. Plus you can expect Mercury-Prize winning Little Simz and an iconic collaborative show from hip-hop pioneers celebrating their shared hometown – Wu Tang Clan + Nas: NY State Of Mind – playing together for the first time on stage in the UK.
Looking ahead to his first major UK festival headline performance, Aitch said: “Buzzin to be headlining Parklife this year! It’s been one of my main goals since I started music so for it to be happening now at this point is unreal. I don’t care what happens after this, I’m happy.”
