What makes the Parklife Festival even more incredible? The answer is called Heaton Park, that is, the splendid location of the event. With its 600 acres, it is among the largest urban parks in all of Europe. Created in 1902, it houses a golf course, a playground, a navigable lake and a tram museum. Heaton Park also hosted some legendary concerts; among these, the performances of Oasis and Stone Roses are absolutely incredible.
