Back in December, festival organisers rescheduled Parklife to September this year, giving music-lovers "a new date to dance" in the hopes it could take place without any restrictions.

Since then, festival co-founder Sacha Lord has spoken more about his hopes for the event taking place this year.

"The vaccination roll-out has been incredible and hats off to all our scientists and NHS volunteers," he told NME.

"For once, we can say that we have got something that’s world-beating. It’s phenomenal and we’ve got leading scientists saying they’re confident that everyone will have had their second vaccine by July."

"We pushed back Parklife to September and we’re confident it will go ahead. We’ve got New Order on the night before and we’re gearing up for success with an 80,000 capacity," he said.

He added: "We’re not considering operating with social distancing – I personally don’t like these socially distanced events. I think to go to a proper gig or a proper rave you need to be shoulder-to-shoulder in a hot sweaty environment. You cannot create that atmosphere at a socially distanced event."
