The XX and Liam Gallagher to headline Parklife Festival

Manchester’s Parklife Festival has revealed it’s line-up for this summer’s bash and it is looking big, with local legend Liam Gallagher set to top the bill alongside mesmerising trio The XX.

The pair of headliners will be joined on the bill at Heaton Park by Skepta and N.E.R.D., Liam Gallagher has spoken in the past about his admiration for the Boy Better Know member to which he responded with: “Liam’s in touch, bro. You can see. Not everybody really knows what’s happening. It’s a presence, it’s apparent, I’m here. You can see it in there eyes, you can see it in Bowie’s eyes when he takes a photo, rest in peace. There are so many of them.”

He added: “We get it, and when we see people who get it, we know that they get it as well. I’m happy that I represent that. Thanks to my mum and dad for giving me the right tools of life to get to this point.”

Notable artists on the bill include Jamie XX, Bonobo, Lorde, Everything Everything, Vince Staples, Jessie Ware, Chvrches, Sampha, Justice, J Hus, Four Tet, A$AP Rocky, Giggs and Tom Misch.

The Manchester festival will take place over the weekend of June 9th-10th this summer, to register for pre-sale go to https://parklife.uk.com/.
