RESIDENTS in Prestwich are being urged to have their say in this year's planning of Parklife, a music festival at Heaton Park.

The festival attracts tens of thousands of visitors over two days.

This year it will take place on June 11 and 12.

A spokesman for GMP Bury South said: "We are asking for your opinions.

" The planning into this year's Parklife is underway and we are asking residents who live in the area surrounding areas to have their say.

"As residents, you are ideally placed to know what the issues are, what works well and what improvements could be made to community policing this operation. Please let us know what and where you have seen problems and what you would want to see from a policing response this year."

This year's headlining artists are 50 Cent, Tyler, the Creator, and Megan Thee Stallion.

Residents have aired their concerns following the police's request, citing anti-social issues around drinking, litter and toilet issues last year, the festival saw around 80,000 festival-goers arrive at Heaton Park.

The festival originally started back in 2010 as Mad Ferret Festival in Rusholme's Platt Fields Park, however, in 2012 it was renamed Parklife and moved to Heaton Park.

One resident posted on Facebook: “I think it's great to have this event on the doorstep.

“It is one weekend a year and the local people attending don't have to travel.

“It's great seeing the effort some go to get dressed up festival style. The litter has gotten much better over the years and more toilets.

“Bring it on I may even go this year and be one of the oldest there.”
