How can I get to the festival on public transport?


A Parklife shuttle bus will be running a continuous service from the corner of Aytoun Street and Minshull Street (M1 2DD), near Piccadilly train station, with drop-off right inside the festival site.

  • On Saturday the first bus to the Park will depart at 9:30am with the last bus departing at 4.30pm.
  • On Sunday the first bus to the Park will depart at 10:30am with the last bus departing at 4.30pm.
  • On both days, the return bus service departing from inside the Park to Manchester city centre, starts at 6.30pm and will continue until the site is clear. As soon as a bus is full it will depart, dropping passengers off on Church Street.


To get to Parklife from the city centre, you will need to board the tram to Bury and get off at the Heaton Park or Bowker Vale stops.

Metrolink operates a regular service throughout the day (approximately every six minutes) with the journey taking around 20 minutes.

At the end of the day, you will need to take the tram from Bowker Vale (less than 10 minutes’ walk from the festival site) to return to the city centre.

The Heaton Park stop will be closed after 6pm each evening for safety reasons.
