Parklife has announced a stunning line up for 2023 including big players The 1975 and Aitch.

This year, the Heaton Park festival will also welcome to its stage Fred Again, Wu Tang Clan + Nas NY State of Mind, Self Esteem and Little Simz, alongside 90s rave legends The Prodigy, who have carried the legacy of the band since the passing of frontman Keith Flint back in 2019. 

Sticking firmly to its roots, Parklife will feature plenty of local talent too. Alongside Mancunian icon Aitch, Aletha, Gina Breeze and Interplanetary Criminal are amongst the Greater Manchester acts appearing this year.

Looking ahead to his first major UK Festival Headline performance, Aitch said: “Buzzing 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.”
