From the 6th to the 7th of June, Parklife takes over Heaton Park in Manchester with a huge line-up. The fifth instalment of the festival pulls no punches with live performances including Disclosure, Caribou, Jamie XX, James Blake, Mark Ronson, Fatboy Slim, Mac Demarco, Jungle, Action Bronson, Tourist, Nicholas Jarr, and Kaytranada.
David Rodigan, MK, Skream, Dusk, Oliver Heldens, Wilkinson, Benji B, Wave & Odyssey, and John Talbot have DJ sets. Actually, so do Bondax, Route 94, and Tom Minsch. And Annie Mac. Basically, the point is the line-up for Parklife is kind on fire for both the live act and DJ line-ups. From some of the hottest rappers on the planet right now, to the best of British house, from chart-toppers, to the best of the underground, Parklife has it covered.
Full line up can be seen below.
As a small tip, watch out for Tei Shi and Lapsley, whose synth pop will inevitably blow up this summer. Badbadnotgood have just released an album with Ghostface Killah, which brought all kinds of jazz, electronic and rap goodness (Wu Tang Clan are playing, so a guest appearance seems inevitable). And then there is Earl Sweatshirt. Sweatshirt’s album I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside has dropped and is, quite frankly, huge. The same thing can be said about Parklife 2015.
