The organizers of the famous Manchester event announced that the Festival will carry on as planned. The music festival takes place at Manchester’s Heaton Park. The location is near the Manchester Arena, where the deadly explosion has occured on May 22nd. The Organizers announced they will not be defeated by such cowardice. To recall, in the Manchester attack, 22 people were killed and around 59 were injured on Ariana Grande’s concert in the Arena.
Locals The 1975 headlining
The headliners to this year’s Festival are The 1975. It’s a band originating from Manchester, who already perform on the festival last year. Apart from The 1975 band, the performers are: Frank Ocean, Run the Jewels, Boy Better Know, Fatboy Slim, Two Door Cinema Club, Jess Glynne and Stormzyand many others. So far no one has cancelled the show.
Due to the situation in Manchester, Parklife announces taking special safety measures in order to be safe during the Festival. We had to ask about their fears and predictions about the people coming to the Festival – since there’s not much time left until the beginning of the Festival. The Organizers tell how the number of the visitors will definitely be conditioned by the latest attack in Manchester. But, Parklife is an iconic event in Manchester, so the biggest number of those who wanted to visit, will visit anyway. No matter the tragedy, Festival tickets are selling really quick. So, if you want to get yourself one : better hurry!
