Crack in the Road

This June, Parklife Festival returns for its third year at Platts Field Park, Manchester, featuring an absolutely stellar lineup featuring acts such as Twin Shadow, Gold Panda, Mount Kimbie, Tom Vek, Ghost Poet, Azealia Banks and (the shining diamond at the top of the line-up) The Flaming Lips, whose festival appearances we have gushed over before and whose inclusion turns the festival’s line-up from a fantastic one to an unmissable one.
