Step On DJs: 7.15pm
Liam Gallagher: 8pm
Chemical Brothers: 10pm
Gallagher will be coming in hot off the October release of his debut solo album As You Were, which is named in honour of the sign-off the singer typically uses on his Twitter account.
But Oasis fans should take note as 50 per cent of his set will be filled with the Mancunian band’s classics. So expect earnest sing-a-longs aplenty to the likes of Live Forever, Champagne Supernova and Wonderwall.
THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS
The Mancunian duo of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons started from humble beginnings in 1989 and rose to prominence in the 1990s alongside contemporaries The Prodigy and Fatboy Slim to reshape popular music, helping bring big beat and electronica to the mainstream.
They’ve since gone on to nab six number one albums in the UK, and 13 top 20 singles, plus they’ve netted no less than four Grammy awards including ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’ for their 2006 record Push the Button.
They have a celebrity fan base led by Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr. They perform to sellout gigs in the UK. NME champions them, and now British neo-psychedelic pop rock band Temples will fly over for Party In The Park (thanks to the lovely folk at Fred Perry, who are bringing the band over here for our listening pleasure).
Formed in 2012, the four-piece from Northamptonshire has seen their popularity soar over the past five years. Their second single, Colours to Life, has been viewed more than 2.4 million times on YouTube, while their latest album Volcano was rated 4 out of 5 by NME, who described the lads as “supremely gifted melodists and assiduous students of the past”. Expect spoonfuls of retro psychedelic sugar when the lads hit the stage on November 10.
MORE ON THE PARTY…
It’s not just music on offer though – there’ll also be plenty of food and drink spots, and cool local companies selling their wares, as per usual.
See you there?
