Manchester’s celebrated Parklife Festival announces its full 2023 line-up, slating seven acclaimed headline artists across the two-day event.
Returning to its Heaton Park stomping ground, the latest installment will expand from eight stages – including the famous Valley, Hangar and Main stages – to a total of 10 kitted out spaces. The new additions amplify Parklife’s prodigious status as the UK’s largest metropolitan festival, set to welcome more attendees than ever before.
Across the stages, a number of household names in hip-hop, rap and indie rock will join its signature offering of electronic DJs. On the staggering headline bill, Parklife taps Manchester’s very-own Aitch in a UK festival exclusive, as well as The Prodigy who gear up for their first performance since 2018. In an homage to their hometown, Wu-Tang Clan and Nas come together to bring their NY State of Mind tour overseas, marking their debut collaborative performance in the UK.
The highly-anticipated performances don’t stop at the headline acts, as the likes of JPEGMAFIA, NxWorries and Knucks are also set to send waves across the park this year. In typical Parklife fashion, label imprints and music platforms will take over stages with their own line-ups, seeing Rinse FM, Glitterbox, XXL and Radio 1 Dance return to the festival.
