Date published: 27th Oct 2022
The UK's largest metropolitan music festival, Parklife has announced that tickets for its already highly anticipated summer edition next year will go on sale this Friday (28th October) at 10 am.
Confirmed to take over the city's largest recreational space, the festival's now spiritual home, Heaton Park, the popular event will bring in a score of the world's most sought-after musical icons to perform in front of 80,000 fans each day, over a sunny weekend in June 2023. (Saturday 10th to Sunday 11th June).
This year's sold-out instalment saw showstopping headline performances from Tyler, The Creator, who made his long-awaited UK headline debut at the event, Megan Thee Stallion, and legendary rapper, 50 Cent, who arrived at the venue with what's said to be the largest entourage the festival has ever seen.
Other notable acts who appeared on this year's lineup included Loyle Carner, Jamie XX, Arlo Parks, Headie One, Central Cee, Fred Again..., ArrDee, Caroline Polachek, Tom Misch and PinkPantheress, with DJ sets across the weekend coming from Four Tet, Eric Prydz, Peggy Gou, Carl Cox, Marco Carola, Camelphat, The Blessed Madonna, Andy C, DJ EZ, Sonny Fodera, Annie Mac, Jayda G, Mall Grab and many more.

Parklife 2022 also saw some brand-new stage partners getting in on the fun, curating a plethora of special sets from a list of both established and upcoming names. Defected, underground giants Fuse, techno heavyweights XXL and tastemakers Eat Your Own Ears and Repercussion all got involved, whilst BBC Radio 1 was on hand to broadcast all the action live across the station’s dance shows.
The festival's organisers have kept details regarding next year's lineup a closely guarded secret but one thing is for certain, you can be sure it's going to be a hard one to top. Promising some spectacular new platforms and arenas to be unveiled over the next few months and a huge array of talent, Parklife 2023 looks to be an event you can't afford to miss.
