Parklife 2017 – Festival Preview

Heaton Park is set to come alive this weekend as Parklife Festival heads back to Manchester for its 7th year running. With a huge line-up, featuring internationally renowned artists covering the entire gamut of musical styles, there is bound to be plenty for everyone to enjoy over the two days.

The festival, which takes place on 10th – 11th June, has plenty to offer punters, as there will be music, food, drink, and plenty of good times to be had. Difficult to say no to that, really, don’t you think? There are art installations planned to provide a visual feast, while a fairground will also be operating for added thrills.

This year’s line-up is as impressive as ever, as The 1975 and Frank Ocean top an eclectic line-up that includes Boy Better KnowTwo Door Cinema ClubRun The Jewells and Damian Marley.

One act attendees must definitely keep an eye on is garage music’s top producer and selecta, DJ EZ. If you’ve seen EZ before, then you’ll know exactly how he throws down the ultimate party. Guarantee yourself some ultimate bangers as EZ chops up garage classics like there’s no tomorrow.

On a less ‘beatsy’ tip, you’ve got the sublime sounds of London Grammar bringing their hauntingly beautiful brand of pop to the festival. You’re bound to know them for hits such as Hey Now, Strong, and Big Picture. The ethereal vocals of Hannah Reid are enough to bring even at least one tear to the hardest of case’s eye.

Finally, if reggae is you bag, then definitely, WITHOUT A DOUBT, check out reggae royalty, as David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan MBE. There is literally nothing this man doesn’t know about reggae, and his knowledge and abilities as a selecta have garnered him the respect of fans worldwide, including the notoriously difficult-to-break ‘Little Island in The Sun’, Jamaica. Prepare to be schooled in the art of reggae selecting, and give it your best bogle.

Manchester’s The Warehouse Project, will be hosting a stage on the Saturday which, as you would expect, features some incredible electronic acts such as Hot Since 82 and The Martinez Brothers.

If you are heading down, you are reminded that the festival has no camping on site. However, it is in Manchester, so you will be fine for places to stay (although you might want to prepare yourself for a long ride when the festival shuts, if you’re relying on public transport to get back to ‘Manchester proper’).
