History of Parklife Festival
Parklife Festival first took place in 2010, having developed out of the mad Ferret Festival which had taken place previously.
Originally, Parklife festival ran for a single day at Platts Fields in Manchester, in 2011 Parklife returned as the Parklife Weekender – it was a massive success which pulled in visitors from the rest of the UK as well as Manchester.
All of the big promoters in Manchester got together to make Parklife Festival happen, if you know the Manchester scene then think The Warehouse Project, Now Wave, Metropolis, Ape, The Deaf Institute, Mad Ferret etc. If you’re not too up on the Manchester music scene rest assured these are the scream of the crop and they know what they’re doing.
