The Parklife Weekender has pretty much spearheaded the Young Academic Festival Guide this summer, so we thought we should warn any students out there who have still not bought their tickets to ruddy well hurry up!
Believe it or not, there are now just six weeks to go until Parklife and the event’s production team is working flat out to ensure that they deliver the best city based music festival the north has ever seen. Young Academic has endured the torrential downpour of last year as well as the beautiful sunshine during the years before but either way, this festival has to be our favourite – apart from Glastonbury of course!
The site is perfect, the acts are incredible and the atmosphere and buzz that is unmistakably Manchester makes the Parklife Weekender truly unforgettable. As always, Young Academic will be bouncing around this event all weekend doing our exclusive interviews, reviews and podcasts – make sure you don’t miss out!
The official line from the powers that be at Parklife is that weekend tickets for the event are now in short supply. They would therefore advise anyone wishing to attend this year’s festival to purchase their tickets ASAP.
