Getting there

Parklife Express
New this year is the Parklife Express, enabling Parklife Weekender ticket holders to travel safely, easily and very cheaply from both the City Centre and student district Fallowfield. There will be dedicated bus services running from Fallowfield and the City Centre directly to Parklife's own bus station at Heaton Park.

These services will operate from bus stops opposite Owens Park in Fallowfield and from a location in the City Centre, to be confirmed. The return journey will be direct to the City Centre to take ticket holders to the after parties. These services will be operating continuously from 10.30am on Saturday and 11:30am on Sunday.

Single day tickets are £4.50, for a return journey from Owens Park to Parklife bus station to City Centre, weekend tickets are £9.

Parklife Express tickets can be brought in person from Squirrels Bar (Owens Park Campus) in Fallowfield, and go on sale 15th April at 11am. Bus tickets will also be available to purchase online, please note these will be subject to a credit card handeling fee.

Attendees can also travel to and from Heaton Park by Metrolink. The closest stop is Bowker Vale on the Bury line. Aware that many people will be travelling to and from The Parklife Weekender at Heaton Park, the Manchester Metrolink is also doubling their weekend services to ensure an easy journey to and from the festival.

The Parklife Weekender also supports charities including The Loop, Freedom from Torture, Each One Teach One (EOTO - a charity founded by headliner Plan B), The Lord Mayor of Manchester's Charity, We Love MCR, and Greater Manchester Riding for the Disabled (GMRDA).
