|Parklife is a labour of love that started as a very small party in a park in March of 2000. We did it because we wanted to share the music we love with other like-minded people in a beautiful outdoor setting close to the centre of the city… and although it’s grown just a bit over the last 11 years the idea is exactly the same: Music we love, smiling people and a great party amongst grass, trees and (hopefully!) brilliant blue skies, right in the heart of the city.
Each year we do our very best to bring you the freshest bunch of artists in styles of music we think matter the most right now, constantly refine and improve everything about the show and give you a high quality Parklife experience.
We want Parklife to be a brilliant, glowing day you and your best friends look back on fondly for the rest of your lives!
The 2011 bill includes a bunch of talented solo female artists with the likes of Lykke Li, Santigold, Katy B, Beth Ditto and Kimbra all set to feature as part of the national run of dates.
Dubstep acts are also well represented with Magnetic Man (made up of UK producers Skream, Benga and Artwork) making an appearance alongside Nero, Joker & MC Nomad, Feed Me and Flux Pavilion.
The Parklife shows are also said to be the last ever performances for The Streets after Mike Skinner announced earlier this year that their fifth album, Computers and Blues, would be the UK outfits last.
