Heaton Park has big plans for the 8th and 9th of June 2013.
It’s hosting the Parklife music festival.
This festival has been held at Platt fields for the last 3 years, but appears unlikely to become a regular feature at Heaton park.
The festival is aimed squarely at “young people” and in particular it’s targeted at the UK student population.
The line-up for Saturday 8th June on the main stage is:
- Plan B
- The Maccabbees
- Jessie Ware
- Crazy P
- Trojan Sound System
- Will Tramp
And Special Guests: The Temper Trap
Then on Sunday 9th June on the main stage they have:
- Rita Ora
- Rudimental (Live)
- Wretch 32
- Iggy Azalea
- Riot Jazz (Live)
- Juicy DJS
- Johnny Dub
And special guests: Jurassic 5
Plus lots of other bands on a variety of stages
All, in all should be an interesting experience.
However, this appears to be the only concert on this year. And residents around Heaton Park were a little concerned that the council were trying to make more use fo the park as a concert venue. Maybe that will be next hear?
