Tickets for Parklife Festival 2022 go on sale today with those who signed up for pre-sale getting first access to early bird tickets.
Although the festival took place on 11 and 12 September this year due to COVID-19 restrictions earlier in the year, the festival will resume its normal a June date for 2022, taking place on 11 and 12 June.
More than 150,000 people have signed up for pre-sale, which goes on sale at 10am today, where earlybird ticket prices will be available until 30 September.

Everyone who signed up for pre-sale will have been sent an email with their own personal ticket link to use.
As always, festival goers have two ticket options: General Admission and VIP, with the VIP tickets offering that added extra Parklife experience with a separate entrance, VIP area with stage, multiple bars and luxury toilets, and more.
Both tickets types are available for the full weekend, or for individual Saturday and Sunday day tickets.
Parklife payment plans are available again with Klarna to help spread the cost, too. With options to pay in nine monthly instalments of £15 or £20 depending on your ticket type.
Organisers are yet to reveal a lineup for next year’s edition. But in true Parklife style, they’re already teasing a huge one.
This year saw Dave, Megan Thee Stallion, Skepta, The Blessed Madonna, Adam Beyer, Pendulum Trinity and more headline across the weekend. Look out for an announcement coming very soon.
The very special homecoming show will be New Order‘s first full headline performance in the city since 2021.
The group are widely accepted to be one of the most influential bands of all time and this year celebrated 40 years of their hit Blue Monday.
They were founded in 1980 by vocalist and guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris, who had all been together in Joy Division, which disbanded after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis.
This year, the band announced reissued editions of their classic compilation ‘Substance 1987’, the band’s biggest-selling album to date.
They also headlined Barcelona’s Primavera Sound before they commenced their UK and European tour this autumn.
New Order will be supported by Johnny Marr, good friend of the band and legendary guitarist of The Smiths.
Marr and Sumner previously worked on synth-dance act Electronic together, and released three albums.
Johnny Marr announced a new album earlier this year – ‘Spirit Power: The Best of Johnny Marr’ will celebrate the first ten years of his solo career, featuring songs from across his four solo albums.
Fans can expect to hear Johnny’s greatest hits alongside the brand new track ‘The Answer’ as he takes to the stage at Wythenshawe Park next August.
Also supporting New Order at Wythenshawe Park will be adopted Manc Roisin Murphy, known in the 1990s as one half of pop duo Moloko.
The Irish singer and songwriter recently released her universally acclaimed sixth studio album, Hit Parade.
