Meet your Speaker
Co-founder of Parklife Manchester Limited & The Warehouse Project (the biggest club night in the UK), Night Time Economy Adviser for Greater Manchester
Growing up in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, Sacha left Manchester Grammar School with two Us and an E at A-level. He then began – and then swiftly departed – jobs working on market stalls in Manchester and Liverpool. Two decades later, he holds one of the most prominent positions in the North, advising directly into Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, and has founded some of the biggest and best music events in Europe – The Warehouse Project and Parklife festival.
Parklife is a weekend that has become the nation’s largest metropolitan festival, hosting some of the biggest names in music, including Snoop Dogg, Liam Gallagher and Skepta.
The annual festival employs over 4,500 people over the weekend and brings more than £10million into the local economy. Each year, it raises over £100k for the Parklife Community Foundation, that is distributed to help local causes.
