Parklife 2023


Recommended Posts

I'm gonna go in with a few guesses... Headliners I've put in bold.

Main Stage: Doja Cat, Wizkid, Stormzy, Cardi B, J. Cole, Lil Nas X, AJ TraceyAitch/Jorja Smith (or maybe subs), Becky Hill, PinkPantheress, Anne-Marie, Bru-C, Tate McRae, Mimi Webb, Tion Wayne, Stefflon Don, Fireboy DML and Tems

The Valley: The Chemical Brothers, ODESZA (more me dreaming), Patrick Topping/MK (maybe a bump up to headline the stage), D-Block Europe, Calvin Harris (I'd say too big, but never say never), Major LazerKanoRudimental (live set), Fatboy Slim, Little Simz, Knucks, Mura Masa, DJ EZ, Honey Dijon, Annie Mac, Gorgon City and SASASAS

Other Stages/Tents: Flume, Jax Jones, Joel Corry, High Contrast, Bonobo, Darkzy, Fisher, Michael Bibi, Hot Since 82, Alan Fitzpatrick, The Shapeshifters, Sam Divinr, Eli & Fur, Kaytranada, Mason Maynard, Mr Scruff, Kölsch, Franky Wah, Pete Tong, Jaguarm Denis Sulta, Luude, Benny L, LF System, Alcemist, Seth Troxler, Oden & Fatzo, Archie Hamilton, Sammy Virji, Chloé Robinon, Mall Grab, Lilly Palmer, Green Velvet, Ben Nicky, Jonas Blue, Flava D, Skepsis, Eli Brown, Ben Hemsley, Jodie Harsh, Anna Tur, other Parklife regulars, Parklife & Warehouse Project resident DJ's + More

 

Other than acts, am really hoping for a re-jig to the whole site for next year, in particular the main area home to the Parklife Stage (main stage), The Hangar and The Temple - massive bottlenecks all weekend (same in 2021 too) and SO much sound bleed (especially if you were on the left hand side towards the back of The Temple, as all you could here was the bass from that stage, and then everything going on in The Hangar and on the Parklife Stage)... A roof back on The Hangar like the good old days would be perfect as well. The new tent for this year (Fuse/Metropolis) was great, but a lot of work is needed, especially in terms of size, they had to close it off multiple times on the Sunday due to it being so busy in there (don't really know what they expected tbh with how big Drum & Bass currently is...), so a larger scale version of that would be class. The XXL/Defected stage was great how it was this year, no problems at all with sound or overcrowding, same with The Valley, which still remains my favourite stage... Not really sure what they can do about the issues though, other than either reducing the capacity (which they clearly won't do), having less stages or making the whole site bigger (not sure if that'd be possible) - or maybe just a slight change of where the stages are located and putting The Hangar back into a tent would fix those issues, as it was only really last year it was properly noticeable about the sound bleed and really bad bottlenecks... Fingers crossed they look at and respond to everyone's feedback for next year!

I'd say so, subbed main stage last year and got a bigger crowd than Skepta (from what some of my mates said who saw him after DBE, I went Disclosure) - pretty big slot at R&L too this year, and probably will have more music out by next June too - think it'd make sense a rap option if they don't do both Valley headliners as dance/electronic acts
