Parklife Weekender 2013 Event Info
Heaton Park is widely considered to be one of the premier outdoor venues in the north of England and has of course hosted the legendary concerts from the likes of The Stone Roses and Oasis. They are very lucky that this year no other large scale events have been planned for the park and that has opened it up for Parklife to go and plant a flag in what is a huge move from Platt Fields. They are really proud to see Parklife 2013 at Heaton Park – it definitely feels like this is going to be a key moment in the Parklife history books and see the festival grow even further.
After the last couple of years bursting at the seams in Platt Fields, the extra space at Heaton (one of the largest municipal parks in Europe) is going to give the Parklife team that extra room to create an even wider spread of madness and entertainment across the site. Larger dance arenas, more spectacular production, more hidden nooks and crannies. More of everything that makes Parklife what it is and Manchester’s official start to the summer.
Camping: No camping at this event – check out our ‘Hotels’ tab for other options.
Opening Times: Saturday 8th June : 11.00 hrs – 23.00 / Sunday 9th June : 12.00 hrs – 23.00
