Noel Gallagher at Wythenshawe Park: Everything you need to know

It's the first ever gig to be held at the historic park, which has been in existence since the 13th century.

An anticipated 25,000 fans are expected in Wythenshawe Park tomorrow for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' biggest ever UK outdoor headline gig.

It's also the first ever gig to be held at the historic park, which has been in existence since the 13th century.

Oasis star Gallagher, who was born in Longsight and grew up in Burnage, will headline a full day of live music and entertainment at the park.

Here's everything you need to know:

Support acts

Gallagher has personally selected all the support acts for Saturday's gig.

First up will be Manchester-originating word-of-mouth sensations Picture Parlour, who are described as producing atmospheric classic rock with the distintice growl of singer Katherine Parlour.

Next up is Billy Nomates, the stage name of English musician and songwriter Tor Maries.

She came to national attention after a set at this year's Glastonbury Festival, when she called out an "insane" amount of online abuse and asked BBC Radio 6 Music to remove footage of her performance from their website. Her words drew support from fellow musicians, among them Billy Bragg.

Primal Scream lead singer Bobby Gillespie 

She's followed on to the Wythenshawe Park stage by American synth-pop band Future Islands. They describe themselves as "post-wave", combining the romanticism of new wave with the power and drive of post-punk.

And the final support is legendary indie band Primal Scream, who formed over 40 years and are best known for their Mercury Music Award-winning album Screamadelica.
