When the weather’s cold outside, sometimes it’s best to let thoughts of the summer ahead be your thermal blanket, or at least that’s what we’re telling ourselves as minds wander towards Parklife 2018. Returning to Heaton Park on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June, the huge Manchester festival will again welcome some of the biggest artists in dance music to an abundance of stages and tents, lighting up the green space with its immaculate production, en vogue artists and up for it crowd. Last year saw headline slots from the likes of Frank Ocean, The 1975 and Fatboy Slim, with other titans of the dance world including Eric Prydz, Dixon, Carl Cox and Stormzy to name just a tiny proportion, and this year promises more of the same.
Nostalgia’s no bad thing, so here’s a look back at some of the highlights of Parklife 2017…
