The only date needed in the diary, Parklife 2023 is here. The UK’s largest Metropolitan festival and the go-to home of the biggest and the best is ready to serve up THE lineup of the summer as a melting pot of the sounds defining 2023 and beyond. Its roots in Manchester shine bright this year, with the influential and revolutionary sounds of The 1975 headlining the festival At Their Very Best and Manchester’s own Aitch playing a UK Festival Headline Exclusive for a homecoming celebration you can only see at Parklife. Continuing his unstoppable rise, Fred again.. is set to headline Parklife in unforgettable fashion, whilst iconic trailblazers The Prodigy bring their live intensity to Heaton Park for their first festival performance since 2018. With Mercury-Prize winning Little Simz and an iconic collaborative show from hip-hop pioneers celebrating their shared hometown – Wu-Tang Clan + Nas: NY State Of Mind – playing together for the first time on stage in the UK, Parklife 2023 is looking essential.
Looking ahead to his first major UK Festival Headline performance, Aitch says:
“Buzzin to be headlining Parklife this year! 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.”
