Parklife was first created as Mad Ferret Festival in Platt Fields Park, Rusholme before it made its move to Manchester in 2012 due to the large capacity crowds it attracted. The festival was brought to life by co-founder Sacha Lord in 2010, and has been entertaining hundreds of thousands for the past decade. It's organised jointly by a number of different groups including The Warehouse Project, and has in the past played host to such names as Mark Ronson, The XX, Frank Ocean and The 1975.
