A$AP Rocky has replaced Kendrick Lamar on the Parklife Weekender bill.

Lamar pulled out of the Manchester festival due to a "scheduling conflict" as it clashed with his own tour, but A$AP Rocky has filled in, in what will be one of only two UK festival appearances this summer. The rapper headlines the Now Wave stage at the event in Heaton Park on Saturday June 7.

Foals and Snoop Dogg will headline the main stage of the festival this year over the weekend of June 7-8. Disclosure, Bastille, Katy B, Rudimental, London Grammar, Warpaint, SBTRKT and Jamie xx will also play, as will Chromeo, Mount Kimbie, Childhood, Gorgon City, Duke Dumont, Flying Lotus, Gold Panda, Zomby, Sam Smith, Clean Bandit, Pusha T, Julio Bashmore, Danny Brown, Skream and Erol Alkan.
