June 2010 saw for what was meant to be the first and last Parklife Festival in Manchester -created to celebrate 100 years of Plattfield’s Park. The festival, however, turned out to be a hit with the student population which was not surprising given a line-up featuring Magnetic Man, Fake Blood, Andy C, Friendly Fires and Calvin Harris to name a few. The event sold out quickly as most students from The University of Manchester and those in and around the North went to the festival to celebrate graduating - myself included! With a variety of acts from various genres this festival was always going to do well which is why MCC have given Parklife 2011 the go ahead! If this years line up was anything to go by... next year will be amazing!
