The massive Heaton Park festival is back in its rightful summer slot for 2022

Parklife has announced its first summer lineup since 2019 with a weekend bursting with UK and US talent descending on Manchester on 11 and 12 June this year.

Massive names from the world of hip-hop will headline the event with rapper 50 Cent taking the Saturday Parklife Stage slot and Grammy award-winning Tyler, the Creator leading the event on Sunday.

Buses full of neon-clad tipsy teenagers will also make their way to the north Manchester park to see US rapper Megan Thee Stallion, electronic duo Chase & Status and British musician Jamie XX take to the stage.

With eight stages in total, other big-hitters due to perform include Loyle Carner, Jessie Ware, Lewis Capaldi, Arlo Parks and Tom Misch.

Last year the event was moved to September to work around strict COVID restrictions, but this year it's back in its regular time slot and ready to take over the city once more.
