Parklife Festival 2021 announced lineup for the annual event set to take place in September and sold out in just over an hour.
After over a year of cancelled major music events, Parklife dropped their massively anticipated lineup and the response was insane.
Within 78 minutes of going live, all festival tickets including VIP were fully sold out with a total of 112,000 individuals purchasing event passes.
“SOLD OUT in 78 minutes
Over 112,000 individual people have bought tickets
This highlights the need for people desperate to socialise for their mental health.
It’s hope for freelancers and the whole supply chain
Events across the UK are following a similar pattern.”

The lineup was packed with massive names including Grammy award winner Megan Thee Stallion and Brit award winning UK rapper Dave.
Plus a giant array of electronic music favourites and regulars including Four Tet, Peggy Gou, Jamie XX, Eric Prydz and Jon Hopkins (to name a few).
The popular Mancunian festival will come as a relief to attendees who have spent well over a year in and out of national lockdown.
Every year, the organisers host a social media competition to give lucky winners the chance to win weekend tickets for themselves and four of their mates.
This year’s competition had a whopping 8,000 entries and the winner was contacted via DM.
However, this year the organisers confiscated the tickets due to the individual trying to flog them for higher price, gutted!
It is reported that the winner tried to sell the winning tickets for £350, the original tickets were on sale for £155.
