Parklife is an independent music festival held annually in Manchester, England. It moved from Platt Fields Park, Rusholme, to Heaton Park in north Manchester in 2012 in order to accommodate the increased numbers attending. It is jointly organised by a number of groups, including The Warehouse Project. In 2018, the festival will be headlined by the xx and Liam Gallagher.
