As the warm weather draws closer so does Manchester's biggest party of the summer: Parklife Festival. Back in style with a new home and new look, this year's weekend is set to be the biggest yet with the dedicated festival team working non-stop behind the scenes over the past few months to get things in tip top shape. This year's event takes place over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2013 and is just about ready to kick 2013's festival season off.
Taking to a brand new location, the festival has uprooted and landed in Manchester's famous Heaton Park. With a bigger site the festival is knocking things up a gear, presenting a wider range of acts with both days culminating an impressive line-up of big headliners.

The weekend promises to be an incredible party of top big names, DJs and of course some promising up and coming artists to be enjoyed by the thousands of fun seekers travelling into Manchester. This year's stage hosts include a range of the UK's biggest DJs and promoters, including Hospitality, Warehouse Project, Now Wave, Drop The Mustard, Hudson Mohawke and Metropolis to name but a few.

Saturday - Saturday's headliners include Plan B, The Maccabees and Jessie Ware. Be sure to check out this year's breakthrough duo, Disclosure. Headlining the Sounds Of The Near Feature stage, this is going to be the place to be over the weekend. The duo will be playing a mix of recent hit collaborations and old DJ set favourites. Other names to watch out for include French teenager Madeon who has recently been working with Lady Gaga, brothers Bondax and hit remixer Cyril Hahn.
Sunday - With Example, Rita Ora, DJ Fresh and The Horrors confirmed as some of Sunday's headliners the day is set to be an amazing party. Watch out for London teenager King Krule playing his distinctive lo-fi melodies and unique spoken word monologues. Other great picks include this year's much-hyped Savages, remix whizz Shy FX and Australian rapper Iggy Azalea who is fresh off the back of singing to power label Def Jam.
Tickets are priced at a very reasonably £69.50 for both days but you'll have to act fast as they're selling quickly. Now let's just hope the sun makes an appearance!
