Parklife returns for another year, the only question is ‘where will you be?’
Preview: Parklife

Manchester’s beloved Parklife returns once more with, perhaps, its finest line-up to date.  Headlining the main stages are staple names such as Plan B, Example and Rudimental but the more you scour the acts the better it gets.  Take some of the biggest Warehouse Project line-ups of last year, compact them into two days, and you’re on the right track for a sublime weekend.

Saturday-goers are truly spoilt for choice:  Disclosure, Four Tet and AlunaGeorge form one stage, whilst Hot Creations favourites Jamie Jones and Lee Foss lead another.  Add to that Maceo Plex, Sub Focus and a return from Maya Jane Coles, and the calibre of quality is clear.  The only question is, ‘where will you be?’  Should you head down early, strive to see Maribou State on the Drop the Mustard stage and you will surely be rewarded, especially as Huxley, Dusky and Bondax all follow.  Sunday also provides yet another chance to see Julio Bashmore live.  Jurassic 5 play the main stage, whilst Scuba, Ben Pearce and a plethora of other DJs complete the second day.

The relocation to Heaton Park may not be convenient but it was undoubtedly necessary, as last year’s overcrowding made some stages near inaccessible.  The bonus is that the shuttle buses run direct from Fallowfield.  No doubt these will turn into rampant party wagons, as studentdom looks to unwind in the inevitable post-exam drinking and debauchery.   As ever, Parklife will surely be a memorable end to any Mancunian student’s year.
