Last year Parklife was headlined by The 1975 and Frank Ocean. Among many unforgettable highlights, Parklife 2017 featured a touching tribute to victims of the terror attack at Manchester Arena. With the Mayor of Manchester and emergency services on stage, and after moving speeches from Councillor Pat Karney, Carl Austin-Behan and Andy Burnham, vocalist Matt Healy led a “minute of noise” before The 1975 began their headline slot.

Parklife has built a solid reputation as one of the UK’s leading summer festivals – and it’s an event that truly embodies the impassioned spirit of Manchester.

The Valley is the latest innovation to arrive at the festival.
