Parklife has today revealed details of a limited one-off 2022 ticket resale. The huge festival in Heaton Park – which this year makes a welcome return to its normal June slot – was a sell-out after in January.
But organisers have now announced a limited number of weekend and Sunday tickets have been reclaimed. They will be available to buy on the festival’s website from 10am on Thursday. Parklife said it represents the final chance for festival-goers to snap up tickets for this year’s event.
Bosses said in a statement: “With tickets being snapped up in record time, now with one month to go Parklife has announced details of a very limited, one-off 2022 ticket resale, as part of continuing efforts to protect festival fans from the dangers of the secondary ticket market and ticket touts.
“A core policy and belief in helping change the events industry for the better, Parklife’s anti-tout policy has seen the festival work closely with the team at Greater Manchester Police to combat the rise in fake or stolen tickets that are being re-sold to unsuspecting victims.
“Attempting to tackle those seeking to take advantage of festival fans with over-inflated prices and more, Parklife has reclaimed a limited number of Weekend and Sunday tickets to allow fans the opportunity to book their place at the hottest festival of the summer.”
This year’s festival will feature artists including 50 Cent, Tyler, the Creator, Megan Thee Stallion and Lewis Capaldi. Police, meanwhile, have issued a warning over fake or stolen tickets.
Chief Superintendent Graeme Openshaw, of Greater Manchester Police, said: “We recognise that for an event such as Parklife that there are many people who will be unable to get tickets.
“Unfortunately every year we deal with unsuspecting victims who buy tickets from touts and get ripped off because the ticket turns out to be a fake or stolen. Our advice would always be that if you don’t know where the ticket has come from and don’t know the person who is selling it to you don’t be tempted to buy it.”
Other artists heading to Manchester for live performances at Parklife 2022 include the likes of Loyle Carner, Jamie xx, Arlo Parks, Folamour (Live), Headie One, Central Cee, Fred Again.. ArrDee, Caroline Polachek, Tom Misch and PinkPantheress.
DJ sets across the weekend come from the likes of Four Tet, Eric Prydz, Peggy Gou, Carl Cox, Marco Carola , Camelphat, The Blessed Madonna, Andy C, DJ EZ, Sonny Fodera Annie Mac, Jayda G, Mall Grab and Ricardo Villalobos.
Parklife 2022 takes place between Saturday and Sunday June 11 and 12.
