No sideshows for Parklife

When the Parklife 2011 lineup dropped in our laps the other month were you one of the number of people thinking “Hh, that looks great but I hope ____ and ____ do sideshows”?

Well, we’re sorry to break it to you but there’ll be no sideshow love around Parklife this year with the festival management team posting the news on Facebook earlier today: “We’ve been asked this question a lot recently – so to clear up any rumours, no there won’t be sideshows for Parklife artists”

The announcement has crushed any hopes for a Death From Above 1979 and MSTRKRFT double header on the side and means that Gossip, Lykke Li, Santigold, The Streets, Crystal Fighters, Little Dragon and the rest of the acts on the lineup are locked into playing exclusively on the Parklife tour.
