160+ artists flocked to Manchester’s Heaton Park last weekend (June 10-11), including some of music’s biggest names, for Parklife Festival 2017.

It was a spirit reflected in sets from The 1975 and Fatboy Slim, while the likes of Stormzy and Zara Larsson brought a party atmosphere. Here’s the best of what NME saw at Parklife 2017.
