This weekend the iconic setting of Heaton Park, Manchester will be taken over by tens of thousands of eager music lovers for the biggest dance music festival on the UK circuit, Parklife Festival.
With incredible main stage lineups and arenas hosted by the likes of Crosstown Rebels, The Warehouse Project, Hot Natured, Hospitality, Circoloco, Metropolis, Now Wave, Heidi's Jackathon, Ape, David Rodigan and many more, the wide array of genres caters for everyone from die hard Circoloco house heads to drum and bass fanatics to Rita Ora fanzies. The full lineup for the Parklife Weekender 2013 can be found below.
The Parklife team have been on site at Heaton Park for a while and things are really starting to take shape. Check out the pictures below for taster of what to expect! Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of the log flume as of yet...
As expected, tickets for Parklife Festival have been incredibly popular and in the final few days before the festival the following tickets have sold out...
With the main festival closing down at 11pm each night it is no surprise that a whole range of official after parties will be going on into the early hours on both Sunday and Monday morning. The likes of Drop The Mustard, Zutekh, Hoya:Hoya, Content, Idiosync, Juicy, Gold Teeth, Kaluki, Ape, Metropolis and more are all involved with DJs such as Andy C, George Fitzgerald, Jackmaster, Scuba, Dyed Soundorom, Damian Lazarus, The Horrors and more all playing.
Tickets are sold out for lots of the after parties already, so be sure to head over to the official Afterlife website here to grab your tickets before they're ALL gone!
