Manchester is known for it’s incredible music scene, so there’s no surprise that it’s home to one of the best festivals in Europe. Born in 2010 and supported by The Warehouse Project, the festival takes over Heaton Park for two days and attracts a crowd of 80, 0000. Parklife has a massive variety of acts – the best I’ve ever seen on a festival line up – as well as afterparties around the city all weekend. The arena has cool cocktails bars, carnival rides, every kind of food you can imagine to come out of a van and enough glitter and hair braiding stations to put Claire’s Accessories out of business. Here’s how to find hidden stages and save money when you’re there, with some survival tips thrown in.
