The Parklife Weekender is an independent music festival held annually at Heaton Park in Manchester. Originally born out of the Mad Ferret festival, it has grown to around 70,000 people per day as of 2014. Started in Platt Fields Park, near Rusholme and Fallowfield, it has since moved to Heaton Park near Prestwich in order to accommodate the increased size.It is jointly organised by a number of groups, including The Warehouse Project and is in some ways seen as a post-student exam extension of The Warehouse Project itself, although it is considerably larger.
Lineup: Carl Cox, Nina Kraviz, Skream, Scuba, George Fitzgerald, Heidi, Ame & Dixon (3hrs), Hot Since 82, Bicep, Benoit & Sergio – Live, Daniel Avery, Krankbrother, Jamie Jones B2B Seth Troxler, Maceo PLex, Eats Everything, Ben UFO & Pearson Sound, Paul Woolford, Ben Pearce, Krysko & Greg Lord and many more.
