Parklife 2017 line up, tickets, weather, travel and everything else you need to know

Parklife festival returns this weekend with a 2017 line up that includes headliners Frank Ocean, The 1975 and London Grammar.

New Orleans R&B star Ocean is making his first confirmed UK performance since 2014 at the Heaton Park festival and it will be the first chance for fans to hear him play tracks from last summer’s critically-acclaimed second studio album Blonde, which featured megastar collaborations from the likes of Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar and James Blake.

Ocean first rose to attention as a member of LA rap crew Odd Future before going solo with debut mixtape Nostalgia Ultra in 2011, followed by his first major label album Channel Orange in 2012.

Also on the bill for the two day festival are Two Door Cinema Club, Eric Prydz, Stormzy, Giggs, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Fatboy Slim, Jamie Jones and Anderson .Paak, who recently supported Bruno Mars on his world tour.

Parklife tickets are all but gone, but you can still get some – if you want to go VIP. Planet VIP tickets cost £145 for the weekend, or £85 for the day. If you’ve got a standard ticket, you can buy a VIP upgrade for £30.

You can get in for free – but you’d have to be happy working as a festival volunteer.

Where is Parklife?

Parklife is held at Heaton Park in Prestwich, a few miles outside of Manchester city centre.

The full address is:

Heaton Park
Middleton Road
Higher Blackley
M25 2SW

Manchester weather

As usual, the Manchester weather is set to be a mixed bag for Parklife. Last year was a game of two halves, as the rain came down on the Saturday – not that it put people off having fun in the mud – and then dried up on the Sunday.

The year, the weather is set to be cloudy, rainy but warm – 19 degrees. So maybe pack your wellies but not your parka. Sunday is a bit better, with occasional cloud but plenty of sun, and a temperature of 18 degrees.

How to get to Parklife

Parklife Travel Pass

Event organisers have created a combined travel pass, giving ravers the opportunity to use both the Metrolink and Parklife Express shuttle bus services, between Manchester city centre and Heaton Park. You can buy a ticket for each day (£5 each) or a full weekend pass (£10).

REMEMBER: Passes must be exchanged for a wristband to be valid for travel, e-tickets are not valid. Wristband exchange points will be located on Aytoun Street (open 9.30am to 5pm) and at Cathedral Gardens (n front of the National Football Museum, 10am to 5pm). Exchanges will be open on the Saturday June 10 and 11 ONLY. If you lose your wristband you won’t be given a replacement, you will have to pay for another ticket.


If you’re heading down on the tram on the day then you will need to take the Bury line and jump off at Heaton Park. Heaton Park station will be closed from 6pm on both days, if you are heading back into the city centre later than that you will need to walk down to Bowker Vale stop.

Parklife Express shuttle buses

Revellers will be able to hop on the express shuttle from Aytoun Street (Corner of Minshull St. near Piccadilly train station) and drops off right inside the festival site, running from: Buses will run from 9.30am to 5pm on Saturday and 10.30am to 5pm on Sunday. Return Bus Service from Heaton Park to City Centre starts at 18:30 until late.
