The countdown for Parklife is officially on…
In less than 24 hours, thousands of party – goers will be descending upon Heaton Park for 2 days of epic performances to start off the festival season with a BANG! With Parklife out-doing themselves with the 2019 line-up once again, we’ve made it easier for you with our cheat sheet of 5 acts you don’t want to miss out on this year.
Patrick has carved a reputation for himself as a figurehead for a wave of exciting and diverse artists from the U.K. A prolific producer, who’s released on labels such as Hot Creations, Truesoul & Relief. He’s also had 11 Beatport #1s, and landed three DJ Awards, one DJ MAG Best of British Award and was voted 11th in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs of 2016 poll.
DJ, producer and Area 10 label boss MK (Marc Kinchen) has followed up on the platinum-selling chart success of last year’s single “Back & Forth” with “Body 2 Body,” his first release of 2019 which he’ll be playing out over yet another hugely busy summer. He’s poised to take the Area 10 brand to some of the world’s most sought-after party locations including Parklife itself! Read all about Marc in our interview with him last year here.
The producers have successfully developed their own brand of high tempo, high energy tech house sound and have had a massive few months, starting their Rinse FM residency and throwing a sold out launch party to mark the release of their trainer collaboration with Adidas, Yung-96 and Foot Locker as they made more moves in the fashion world. They have collaborated with Manchester fashion brand GRAMM. on two sold-out t-shirt collections, and will be modelling and playing for Virgil Abloh at his Louis Vuitton party at Selfridges on 23rd May, with Virgil being a big fan of the trio. We caught up with the boys at last years Parklife, make sure to check that out here.
2019 has already been a truly stellar year for FISHER, who was recently nominated for a Grammy for ‘Best Dance Recording’ for his hit, ‘Losing It’, the huge tech-house stormer which has racked up over 68 million Spotify streams (and counting!), catapulting the Australian producer into the spotlight as a truly viral sensation. He’s just dropped his latest track ’You Little Beauty’ which immediately reached Number 1 in the Beatport Charts.
Solardo had their biggest year to date in 2018, with 2019 looking bigger yet. Having just announced their second residency at Hi Ibiza for the coming season, the pair have a relentless run of tour dates and festival performances coming up across the States and Europe. Alongside a string of successful singles including ‘Be Somebody’ and their CamelPhat collab ‘Accelerator’, the pair also had a range of hot releases on their own label imprint Sola Records.
