The Prodigy, Skrillex, Wu-Tang Clan + Nas, Little Simz, more to headline Parklife Festival 2023
Peggy Gou, Jon Hopkins, Nia Archives, TSHA, and Eliza Rose are also confirmed
The Prodigy, Skrillex, Little Simz, and Fred Again... have all been confirmed as headliners for Parklife. The festival runs Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023 at Heaton Park, Manchester.
Local-born rap star Aitch also tops the bill as an exclusive, with another in the form of Wu-Tang Clan + Nas: NY State of Mind. The show will be the first time the East Coast hip-hop legends have shared a stage together in Britain.
"Buzzin to be headlining Parklife this year. It’s been one of my main goals since I started music so for it to be happening now at this point is unreal. I don’t care what happens after this, I’m happy," said Aitch. The hometown event will be his debut headline slot at a UK festival.
Elsewhere on the list, Peggy Gou, Chase & Status, Overmono, Jon Hopkins, Nia Archives, Andy C, Eliza Rose, LF System, The Blessed Madonna, TSHA, Hybrid Minds, and Carl Cox line up for DJ sets. Meanwhile, Michael Bibi and Jamie Jones play a rare back-to-back set, and Rudimental and Reinier Zonneveld are among those playing live.
BBC Radio 1 Dance, DNB All Stars, Glitterbox, Rinse FM, Metropolis, Worried About Henry, and XXL are confirmed to host some of the ten stages set across Europe's largest municipal park. Pre-sale numbers already broke records for the event, with 200,000 people registering.
