New York native and SoulCulture 13 For 13 certified dope rapper, Joey Bada$$ will be returning to the UK next month as part of the widely recognised Manchester festival, The Parklife Weekender, along with the likes of Action Bronson, Iggy Azalea, Danny Brown and more.
Following a successful gig at London’s XOYO last year, Joey Bada$$’s career has soared and his witty wordplay, old-school style of rhyming and flair for making infectious tracks with his Pro Era crew even earned him a spot on XXL magazine’s sought after Freshmen list in March. Now he is set to revisit the UK and appear at The Parklife Weekender, which takes place at Manchester’s Heaton Park on on 8 & 9 June.
But the Brookyn hailing rapper isn’t the only artist gracing the stage up North next month, as a whole host of other stars are set to perform at the festival. Not only does fellow XXL freshman Action Bronson appear on the live bill, but fans will also get the chance to see Rita Ora, Danny Brown, Jessie Ware, Example, Plan B and many more over the two days. And on top of that there will also be a tonne of DJs spinning tracks in various tents, including Mark Ronson, Mistajam, Hudson Mohawke and DJ EZ. [View the full line-up here.]
Tickets are available for either the full weekend or just one day and start at £45.00 [plus booking fee]. They can be purchased here.
