Parklife 2012 Line-Up

OKLAHOMA City’s psychedelic alternative rockers The Flaming Lips and grime rapper Dizzee Rascal will headline the third Parklife Weekender at Platt Fields park on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June.

Headliners across the festival’s other arenas include dubstep act Nero, Parisian duo Justice – Live, Mixmag’s ‘Breakthrough DJ of The Year 2011’ Maya Jane-Coles and raucous electronic Canadians Crystal Castles.

The Parklife Weekender also welcomes a number of clubland’s most respected labels with Crosstown Rebels and Hospital Records sending a number of their roster to Platt Fields Park. UK promoters Metropolis and Chibuku have also been invited to host their own arenas.
 
Elsewhere the festival’s performers come from the cream of the recent music crop. The newest additions to major radio playlists, magazine cool lists and blogger best of lists, namely Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Azealia Banks, Django Django and Ghost Poet are all part of Parklife’s line-up for this year.
 
Over 100 artists will perform across two days on seven arenas. Tickets cost £64.50. Both 2010 and 2011’s events sold out at least eight weeks in advance. Visit Parklife.ticketline.co.uk
