What time does Parklife 2021 finish and when do gates open?

By Kieran Isgin

It's not long now until Parklife makes its comeback to Heaton Park after being cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manchester's massive weekend of live music takes place on September 11 and 12 - so it's time to get planning and prepare for a jam-packed weekend.

The likes of Dave, Skepta, and Migos are all topping the bill across the weekend - festival-goers will not want to miss a single minute so timing is key.

On Saturday, gates to the festival site open at 11am and on Sunday an hour later at 12pm.

The last entry into Heaton Park will be at 5pm - so you want to plan to arrive in plenty of time before then.

It's important to remember that if you leave the festival site, re-admittance will not be allowed.

For both nights of the big event, all the fun is set to wrap up by 11pm.

There are four public entry and exit gates to Parklife this year which are: West Gate located on Bury Old Road, East Gate which is on Sheepfoot Lane, the North Gate is by the Lake in Heaton Park.

If you have decided to splash out this year, the VIP entrance is located off Sheepfoot Lane adjacent to the East Gate.

Festival-goers who are travelling on the Parklife Shuttle coach service will be dropped off inside Heaton Park, and organisers advise that they should then follow the footpath and use the North Gate by the lake.
