About Parklife festival 2021

Since its inception over a decade ago, Manchester’s Parklife, the UK's largest metropolitan festival, has grown into one of the nation’s most prominent and reputable live music events.

The inner-city festival, which takes place on the expansive grounds of Manchester’s Heaton Park, continues to elevate the standard of what can be expected from a music festival, proving its party throwing prowess year after year.

Those lucky enough to secure tickets to the sought-after two-day festival will encounter performances from an array of renowned artists, together with some of the most cutting-edge live music production found anywhere in the world - from jaw dropping stages and visuals, to explosive pyrotechnics, earth rattling sound systems and mesmerising light and laser shows.

Representing a vast assortment of musical styles and genres - from hip hop, grime and indie, to house, disco, soul and jazz, the festival has previously welcomed many globally recognised names. Past headliners include the likes of Mark Ronson, The Chemical Brothers, Wu Tang Clan, Disclosure, Snoop Dogg, The XX, Liam Gallagher, N.E.R.D, The 1975, Foals... the list goes on.

2020 was set to be Parklife’s biggest year to date, with a long list of stars, curated by The Warehouse Project, set to head up the bill, including Tyler, The Creator, Eric Prydz and pop sensation Robyn to name a few. However, following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2019, the festivals organisers were left with no other choice than to cancel and rearrange the event for the following year.

Thankfully, the programme for Parklife 2021 shows no signs of inconsistency in comparison to its former editions, and promises to be its biggest and most monumental show to date.

Confirmed to appear at this year’s instalment, on the festivals newly rescheduled event dates (Saturday 11th – Sunday 12th September 2021), ticket holders can expect to see over 100 world class performers during the course of the weekend -  from the likes of Bicep, Honey Dijon, Khalid, Hot Chip, Four Tet, Skepta, Fatboy Slim, Peggy Gou and previously confirmed acts, Robyn, Tyler, The Creator and Eric Prydz to name but a select few.
