“Buzzin to be headlining Parklife this year!” Aitch said in a statement. “It’s been one of my main goals since I started music so for it to be happening now at this point is unreal. I don’t care what happens after this, I’m happy.”
Last year’s festival saw performances from acts including 50 Cent, Tyler, the Creator, Megan Thee Stallion, Lewis Capaldi, Bicep, Chase And Status and Jamie xx.
In May of last year, Parklife announced a last-minute ticket re-sale after extra tickets were made available via an anti-tout scheme and failed payment plans.

The festival teamed up with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) to secure fake or stolen tickets that were being resold to unsuspecting victims at inflated prices.
Additionally, a number of failed payment plans by intended attendees meant that more tickets were then released for the June 11-12, 2022 festival.
Graeme Openshaw, GMP Chief Superintendent, said in a statement: “We recognise that for an event such as Parklife that there are many people who will be unable to get tickets. Unfortunately every year we deal with unsuspecting victims who buy tickets from touts and get ripped off because the ticket turns out to be a fake or stolen.
“Our advice would always be that if you don’t know where the ticket has come from and don’t know the person who is selling it to you don’t be tempted to buy it.”
