Parklife Festival returns to the city’s Heaton Park on 11 – 12 September 2021 for a weekend alongside some of dance and alternative music’s foremost names.

Promising to come back bigger than ever following its year off, Parklife Festival will once again curate a top-tier lineup across eight stages, including its prestigious main stage that has featured sets from the likes of Liam Gallagher, The xx and Solange down the years.

But beyond the main stage is where Parklife Festival really comes alive, with seven stages consistently showcasing house, techno, garage, drum and bass and more from DJs such as Disclosure, Peggy Gou and Andy C.

Having started out back in 2010 as the curiously named Mad Ferret Festival in Rusholme’s Platt Fields Park, the festival rebranded to Parklife and moved to its current home in Heaton Park in 2012. It is now curated by a number of the UK’s foremost dance brands, including fellow Manchester event series The Warehouse Project and has gone onto welcome some of music’s biggest artists over the past decade, such as Liam Gallagher, Foals, Disclosure, The Chemical Brothers and The 1975.

And once the main festival has finished, festival-goers have historically had a number of after parties to choose from – named Afterlife – which have featured a selection of artists that performed during the main festival (as well as others) in venues across Manchester. Details of Afterlife are usually revealed closer to the festival.

Parklife Festival 2020 was postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. You can read the festival’s statement here
