There is just one day standing between today and the official start of the Parklife weekender, and here at DMM we are so excited we had to share with you who we can’t wait to see and hear! Now running into it’s 3rd year, the festival is making waves by being tipped as one of the best smaller festivals from the north. Us Manc’s are very aware that being up north comes with a price, the weather unfortunately isn’t that great. Anyone who went last year will agree with me in saying, last June was a little bit wet. I remember there being full on mud fights with people covered head to toe in the stuff, but in true Manc style, we don’t shy away and moan about it… We stand proud in the dirt, in our summer clothes and a rain mac shouting “LETS AV ITTTT!!”
On the Saturday, we are going to be popping in out of tents having a look at everything but a few I’m particularly eager to see are; the deep house duo Art Department, who are playing in the Crosstown Rebels arena along with Danny Daze, Subb-An, Maceo Plex and Damian Lazarus. The cheeky vocal house DJ and producer Tensnake, Fake Blood and James Zabiela who are in the Chibuku tent. And Heidi and special guest Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs who I’m sure will give electrifying energetic performances. Sundays line up is looking pretty good too, with De La Soul on the main stage, Maya Jane Coles, Claude Von Stroke, Julio Bashmore, Miguel Campbell and Eats Everything in the Wax:On arena (Oh my god!! Amazing!) Soul Clap and Wolf and Lamb in the Small Talk tent and 17 year old French disco producer Madeon who is very hot at the moment.
This year is going to be incredible, rain or shine so pack your mac and get ready to party whatever the weather. With plenty of bars, food outlets, cash machines and toilets being set up as we speak, the festival should run smoothly like a mr whippy ice cream on a hot day. And for the first time ever, Parklife has gone a little greener; announcing a new way to significantly reduce the amount of litter in the park, by introducing a 10p deposit on beer cups, plastic cups and bottles. For each cup or bottle that is returned, you will receive 10p. It doesn’t even need to be your own… in fact the more the merrier!
Both days will finish at 11pm where you will get the great big muddy boot out of the park! But for those wanting to continue the day into night… After parties are taking place in close proximity to the festival. Saturday after parties will be held at: Joshua Brooks, Antwerp Mansion, The Ram and Shakle, 256: Why Always Me and Red Rum and Sunday after parties at: The Deaf Institute and 256: Why Always Me.
