Tens of thousands of music fans will descend on Heaton Park this weekend as Parklife returns.

The festival, which takes place at the park near Prestwich each year, is expected to welcome more than 160,000 fans on Saturday and Sunday.

One of the most hotly anticipated events of the summer, Parklife will host performances from some of the biggest names in music including Dojacat, Becky Hill, Camelphat and Disclosure.

Late last year Parklife bosses announced an "industry-first" price cut for tickets which are on sale for slightly lower than last year, starting from £125.

The festival has seen two high profile acts drop-out in the last few weeks, including rapper JHus and Australian music producer Fisher who pulled out “for personal reasons.”

Ahead of the busy event, transport bosses in Manchester have urged festival goers to make use of public transport, and particularly trams, to get to and from Prestwich.

It has introduced a new Parklife travel ticket, available on the Bee Network app, which covers tram and shuttlebus travel from the city centre with one ticket.

Tickets are priced at £5.50 for Saturday or Sunday only and £11 for a weekend covering both days.

Parklife have issued festival goers advice about staying safe at the event, including by wearing sunscreen and keeping hydrated.

Writing on X, organisers said: “If you feel unwell at Parklife, we have welfare and medical services on site, ask the nearest steward or security.

“Sunscreen is allowed (200ml or less, must be original container). You are allowed to bring an empty 500ml clear water bottle on site to fill at our free water points around the site.
