In partnership with Parklife Festival
Despite contending with blistering heat and even a spell of thunderstorms that put the festival briefly on hold on Sunday afternoon, the latest instalment of Parklife was a vibrant dance party with something for everyone.
With acts including FLO, Aitch, Little Simz, The 1975, Wu-Tang Clan + Nas, Nia Archives and more, the weekend affair saw Manchester’s Heaton Park lit up by a wide range of artists spanning UK rap, experimental pop, UK garage and jungle.
