Parklife have finally revealed their hotly anticipated after party plans spread throughout Manchester, because a Parklife party just don’t stop!
The Chemical Brothers and Major Lazer will headline a raucous weekend in Heaton Park and Afterlife will keep the party alive from 11pm to 5am in a series of club nights spread across the city’s iconic venues. The likes of Chase and Status, Armand Van Helden, Bicep and Seth Troxler will accompany you through to sunrise, and what better way to start your day than EDM and a hearty breakfast?
During the day, NWA alumni Ice Cube and fellow Americans Busta Rhymes will blast from the past and compliment the best of UK grime courtesy of Skepta, Kano and Stormzy. There will even be a few stray guitars with appearances from Circa Waves, Wolf Alice and Bastille. Southampton native Craig David will also make his way up to Manchester for his TS5 set.
As if this stellar line-up wasn’t enough, Afterlife will also see talent from Parklife spill over and make a splash in the witching hours. Manchester’s dynamite discotheque The Albert Hall will host dynamic duo Chase and Status on Saturday night whilst Eats Everything and Jamie Jones will bring a slice of Ibiza on Sunday. Clubbing institution Sankeys will host Armand Van Helden and Steve Lawler afterhours and The Soup Kitchen will be home to a moonlit Seth Troxler on Saturday and Bicep on Sunday.
Hidden will host the bewitching house of Joy Orbison and other highlights include My Nu Leng at Sound Control and P Money at Gorilla. Many special guests are to be confirmed and The Ritz even has an entire secret ensemble up its sleeve.
The Guardian recently hailed Parklife as the best value festival in Europe. This is in no small part thanks to the bargain price of its stellar line-up, one that doesn’t let up with a ‘whopping 73 band per day’ to choose from. Tickets are selling out fast with only VIP options and Sunday tickets available from £54.50.
Tickets for Afterlife are available here and range from £3 to £25 depending on the choice of venue, and there are plenty to choose from!
