Parklife Weekender To Move Venue

But not until next year...

Manchester's Parklife Weekender is set to shift venue - but not until next summer.

Still a relative newcomer in festival terms, Parklife Weekender has rapidly expanded. Returning for a fresh instalment this summer, the Manchester based event is already on course for a complete sell out.

All of which means that organisers have to think carefully about how they progress. Deciding to move venue, next year's Parklife Weekender will shift away from Platt Fields Park to a different area of the city.

Parklife Weekender co-promoter Sam Kandel comments:
“Platt Fields provided a great start for The Parklife Weekender and we’ve been really grateful.

In 2010 when Parklife was just an idea, it was really an unknown as to whether it would work. If we had known only three years on we would be moving onto a new site to develop and grow the festival to meet demand – it would have saved many sleepless nights!

The park hosted our launch year and last summer’s expansion to a full weekend festival and will always hold fond memories from ourselves and our customers alike.

A new location is not yet confirmed but plans are in the pipeline. In the meantime we’re really looking forward to bidding farewell to Platt Fields in style.

Goodbye Platt Fields."
