Manchester’s Parklife Festival has revealed that it will lower the price of tickets for its next event in 2024 in a bid to become “more accessible for all”.

Previously marked at £129.50, the next edition of Parklife – which is set to take place from June 8 to June 9 next year at Heaton Park – will be lowered to £125 for the weekend.

The festival claimed the reduction will be made in an effort to “make Parklife and festivals as a whole more accessible to generations of music fans”.

The news follows record demand for tickets in 2023 and is said to be an “industry first” amongst a swathe of ticket price hikes, including Glastonbury’s cost-push to £335 this year, up 26% from 2020.

Similarly, both Creamfields and Wireless Festival drove ticket prices up by at least 17% in 2023, with Time Out reporting that the UK has the fastest-rising festival prices in the world.

Alongside the announcement, Parklife revealed the first headliners due to perform in 2024. In a European first, Fisher and Chris Lake will come together as Under Construction, performing a headline set at the festival’s Hangar stage.
