Parklife line up 2017: Who will perform at the Manchester festival?

Who will play at Manchester's Parklife festival in 2017? Here's what we know so far

Manchester’s Parklife Festival returns to Heaton Park this summer (taking place June 10-11), boasting a line up that reads like a who’s who of pop, R&B and grime royalty. The full, 160+ artist line up has already been announced. Here’s the best of what to expect:

Who’s Headlining Parklife 2017?

The 1975

The 1975's Matty Healy

Why they’ll be great: Since releasing ‘I Like It When You Sleep…’, The 1975 have become champions of topping bills. As they step up towards permanent headliner status, this show could be the making of them.

Browse The 1975 merch in the NME Merch Store.

Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean Chanel

Why he’ll be great: The ultra-reclusive R&B star plays shows sparingly – he hasn’t played the UK since 2013. Expect introverted highlights from last year’s ‘Blonde’ album, and fest-ready bangers like the Calvin Harris collaboration ‘Slide’.

The acts we’re excited to see

Stormzy

Stormzy reveals he has suffered racist treatment

Why he’ll be great: Beyond the confessional, honesty-first highlights on ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, Stormzy is all about starting a party – ‘Big For Your Boots’ especially will be taking over festivals in 2017.

Anderson .Paak

Why he’ll be great: Last year’s ‘Malibu’ cemented .Paak as a forward-thinking R&B superstar in-the-making. After featuring in the BBC’s Sound of 2017, he’s a must-see act.

Loyle Carner

Loyle Carner

Why he’ll be great: 2017’s ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ debut is a touching glimpse into family life, suburbia and youth. He’s selling out shows fast across the UK, so catch him while he’s still (relatively) unknown.
