Weekend tickets for the Parklife Weekender 2011 now SOLD OUT

Saturday and Sunday day tickets still available Sat 11th & Sun 12th June 2011 Platt Fields, Manchester

All full weekend tickets for Manchester’s start to the summer, the Parklife Weekender, have now SOLD OUT. Those wishing to join the party can still get in on the action as individual day tickets for Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June are still available for only £35 per day.

Boasting a line-up packed with the best selection of electronic, indie and crossover artists you can find in this year’s festival calendar, it is no surprise that all full weekend tickets for the Parklife Weekender have been snapped up. From the award-wining swagger of Two Door Cinema Club to the dubstep hits of Chase & Status, music-lovers and festival-goers have flocked in their thousands to ensure they will be amongst the lucky ones enjoying the Parklife Weekender’s expanded two-day party in 2011.

There is still time for fans to purchase tickets individually as a small number of both Saturday and Sunday day tickets are still available for only £35 each. Those purchasing one for each day can redeem both at the same time on Saturday 11th June, receiving a weekend wristband which will save them valuable partying time on Sunday and spare them a second round of queuing for entry.

Two individual tickets only comes to £10 more than the full weekend  ticket price making the Parklife Weekender one of the summer’s best value for money festivals.

With over 90 artists also including electro-pop outfit Metronomy, NY-disco collective Hercules & Love Affair and remixer of the moment, Jamie xx, to name but a few - this is an essential date in the festival calendar.

The Parklife Weekender takes place Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June 2011 in Platt Fields Park, Manchester.
Remaining tickets, priced at only £35 per day, are available from Ticketline (0161 832 111, www.ticketline.co.uk)

“All the quirks of a Bestival but in a far more beautiful and sunny setting” THE GUARDIAN

“Perhaps the summer’s most beautiful site” TIME OUT

Soundwave Festival Croatia is lauded by those in the know as Croatia’s best kept secret and THE must do under the radar festival on the European calendar, Organised and promoted by the UK’s most boundary pushing promoter collectives Soundcrash and New Bohemia, the festival showcases the most in-demand leftfield artists of our time all set on the Adriatic Coast in the beautiful 900 year old white wash walled Croatian fishing village of Petrcane.

Soundwave offers a wonderful alternative to the UK’s rain soaked festivals and is a lot cheaper and much less commercial than any UK festival.  Beach bars, boat parties, an outdoor Amphitheatre and nightclubs offer an array of all day entertainment. With Sunshine guaranteed Soundwave is the perfect combination of summer holiday and music festival all at a price cheaper than a train ticket to Glastonbury!

With an already top heavy line up including the likes of Bonobo live with full nine piece band, Roots Manuva, Little Dragon, Hexstatic, Stuart McCallum and many more, Soundwave now announces its superb boat party and curator line-ups for the fun filled three-day festival.  The boat parties have become almost as infamous as the festival itself, this year sees collaborations of only the Soundwave kind as festival goers get the chance to get out to Sea on a choice of ten unique boat parties curated by the likes of Hyponik, Hoya Hoya, Doctors Orders, Eglo Records, Riot Jazz, Channel One Soundsystem, Kerb Darge and Soundcash and friends.

With new owners for 2010, The Big Chill appears to have changed focus with the most 'accessible' line up to date complete with Lily Allen as a headline.  It hasn't been met with the warmest of reactions from seasoned Big Chill veterans, who have attended year on year primarily for the dance-orientated line up, a younger crowd seems to be the evidence of a changing demographic.  Whether this means the end of The Big Chill or just the beginning of a new era remains to be seen.

There still is plenty to get to grips with this year, although the lack of a comedy tent is a real disappointment.  There are touches of Glastonbury here, the Cubehenge installation is on site with a different name, the eyes are once again watching from the trees and there's a distinct lack of toilets, something The Big Chill has always had in plentiful supply!

Highlights will be Kelis, M.I.A, and Mr Scruff - with DJ Derek on the 'not to be missed' list as well.  Keep reading www.freeqmagazine.com for updates, photos and reviews.
