Rappers Dave, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby have been named among the line-up for the Parklife music festival.

The event is set to take place at Heaton Park in Manchester on September 11-12 after the 2020 festival was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Organisers said there has been an “unprecedented demand” for tickets following last year’s enforced break.

According to the road map out of lockdown, the Government hopes to lift all remaining restrictions on social contact by June 21 at the earliest.

This would mean larger events can go ahead and nightclubs can finally reopen.

Parklife is one of a number of major festivals set to go ahead later this year, with the Isle Of Wight festival also aiming for September.

However, Glastonbury has been cancelled for a second year in a row due to the pandemic.

Parklife said 250,000 festival-goers have already signed up for tickets and pre-sale will be made available on Wednesday.

Subject to demand, general release will go on sale on Thursday, according to organisers.
