Among those headed to Heaton Park this summer are grime star JME, Scottish crooner Lewis Capaldi, Skepta, Khalid and Tyler, the Creator. Returning to Britain after a five-year hiatus, this will be the first time the Grammy-winning American rapper has headlined solo outside of London in the UK.
Parklife now ranks as the biggest metropolitan festival in Europe, with 160,000 fans headed to Manchester. ‘Madchester’ is already the UK's best city for live music, with 87 gigs per 100,000 people. Given how much Mancunians love a good time, it should come as no surprise that there are a series of Parklife afterparties held across the urban centre cleverly named Afterlife.
Spanning two days and eight stages, the Parklife lineup is who's who of artists from a variety of styles. This year’s event will also include an early performance by Liam Gallagher on Friday 12 June. The former Oasis frontman tweeted: “So if you haven’t heard I’m playing HEATON PARK 12th June 2020 I’ll be playing songs from my 2 no 1 solo albums and yes you guessed it some stone cold OASIS classics c’mon you know LG x”.
Organised by a group including the people behind The Warehouse Project event series, the top UK festival began in 2010 as Mad Ferret Festival in Platt Fields Park, Rusholme — yes, that really was its name.
