In Pictures: Parklife 2015

Gallery | 19 Jun 2015

Originally conceived as the Mad Ferret festival (remember that?), Manchester’s Parklife festival never fails to attract the big guns. Across the weekend of 6-7 June, Parklife 2015 brought to a sunny Heaton Park headlining sets from Disclosure and Rudimental – but the the real stars were to be found deeper down the bill with the likes of chameleonic new wave songstress Grace Jones, genre-hopping electronic maestro Hudson Mohawke and tireless producer Jamie xx, also joined by a raft of Northwest artists including local heroes Everything Everything, experimental pop boffins Outfit and rising talent Låpsley.  

From Caribou to an incandescent FKA twigs, here’s what our photographer Sam Huddleston caught of the weekend. If you’re still suffering from back-to-work melancholy, why not see if he caught you on film? And if that doesn't work to resolve the nostalgia, you can always check out our interviews with Hudson Mohawke and Outfit, who both chatted to us before their performances.
