Parklife Festival 2018 has confirmed Carl Cox, Andy C, Nina Kraviz, Adam Beyer, and an enormous list of other names for this year's spectacular, which takes place in Europe's largest municipal green space— Heaton Park, Manchester— on 9th and 10th June.
Topping the bill will be electronica stars The XX, who began an ongoing short film project back in November, outspoken local indie legend Liam Gallagher (who's never heard of Carl Cox), grime kingpins Skepta and Giggs, hip hop rockers N.E.R.D, and rapper A$AP Rocky.
Other live offerings include Lorde, Bonobo, Mercury Prize 2017 nominees, Sampha, rapidly rising northern diva, IAMDDB, and the genre-busting urban collective, LEVELZ, who we invited to our DJ Mag Bunker Live at Nozstock last summer.
On top of the house and techno names mentioned earlier, four-four highlights are bound to include Eric Prydz, Jamie Jones b2b Seth Troxler b2b The Martinez Brothers, Kink, The Black Madonna, Jackmaster, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Honey Dijon, Shanti Celeste, Soul II Soul, Peggy Gou, Mall Grab, and Young Marco.
Elsewhere, heavyweight drum 'n' bass comes from Goldie, Shy FX, Hype & Hazard, Friction, and Randall, amongst others. Meanwhile, crews such as Now Wave, who are about to open a venue in central Manchester, Zutekh, Jika Jika, Set One Twenty, Junction 13, The Beehive Club, and Channel One will also be representing. Last year, 75,000 people attended each day; the event's biggest edition to date.
