Parklife revellers make the most of dry weather and 77F temperatures at Manchester festival

Revellers are enjoying the dry weather this weekend at Parklife Festival before another spell of rain set to hit the country again next week.  

Temperatures will peak at around 77F (25C) today, with bright sunny spells expected in most of the country, according to Met Office forecasters. 

More than 80,000 festival goers in hotpants and bucket hats flocked to Manchester to dance in the sun as Dave and Megan Thee Stallion take to the stage later this afternoon.

Tomorrow will be slightly cooler at 72F (22C), although still around average or above average for this time of year, before rainier spells later in the week. 

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic last year’s festival was cancelled. This year up to 50,000 fans, who need a negative lateral flow test to enter, are to be allowed on site daily
