Parklife official 2019 will be taking place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June over at Greater Manchester’s Heaton Park.

In other news, the festival have just released details of their Parklife Community Fund which is now open for applicants and causes, with £45,000 available to community projects…
What does it mean?
Community groups wishing to run a project within parks or green spaces near to or in Heaton Park are invited to apply for a grant from the Parklife 2018 Community Fund.
The Fund – run by the festival in cooperation with Manchester and Bury councils – is the result of the festival’s approach to partnership working with the two local authorities and makes more than £45,000 available this year for the benefit of community groups.
Note: Priority will be given to projects that benefit parks and green spaces.
Prestwich Councillor Alan Quinn, Bury Council’s cabinet member for the environment, says:
“We have been working with Parklife and Manchester City Council for some years to minimise the disruption to Prestwich residents. It is important that local people and businesses also benefit from having these events on their doorstep.
“The amount available for each project remains at £1500 and I urge as many groups as possible to apply for this funding by 25th January. The grants will be awarded at an event in Prestwich towards the end of February. “
