Ground Control


Parklife is an independent music festival held annually in Manchester, England. It started life as Mad Ferret Festival in Platt Fields Park, Rusholme, before moving 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 was headlined by the xx and Liam Gallagher.
