Leading Manchester Festival Parklife Looks To Tackle Environmental Issues With Green Pledge Scheme

Ahead of their much-anticipated 10th anniversary edition, featuring a star-studded line-up including, among many others, Cardi B, George Ezra, Solange, Migos, Khalid, and The Streets in their first festival performance in over 8 years – the popular Parklife Festival is going much beyond just offering brilliant music, as they aim to provide an environmentally friendly weekend for all party goers in their on-going campaign.

Looking to tackle several important topics, the scheme will see Parklife ban all plastic straws from bars at the event, with attendees encouraged to make use of the cup return initiative. With no polystyrene cups or trays used at Parklife 2019, the festival will also clamp down on the use of sachets by banning them entirely from the event.

While the excitement of revellers might be for a line-up offering tastes of hip-hop, rap, r&b, pop, indie and electronic music across 16 stages, there much more to be excited and inspired by, as Parklife also endeavour to make 60% of their cups entirely non-plastic will also encourage festival goers to share cars or use public transport on their way to and from Heaton Park, in a bid to cut down on fuel emissions in the local area.

Parklife 2019 is on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June, at Heaton Park, Manchester. Find further details on their official website.
