Parklife organisers are “confident” that Manchester festival will go ahead in September

Written by on 24 februari 2021

The co-founder of Manchester’s Parklife Festival has said he is extremely confident that the event will be able to take place without any socially distancing regulations later this year. The festival is yet to unveil its line-up for 2021, but is currently scheduled to take place at Manchester’s Heaton Park from September 11-12 after being pushed back from its original date in June.

Speaking to NME, Parklife co-founder Sacha Lord said the ongoing success of the UK’s vaccination programme has given him hope that the event will take place later this year. “The vaccination roll-out has been incredible and hats off to all our scientists and NHS volunteers,” he said.
