 Add to favorites

Manchester festival Parklife has issued a warning to fans over fake tickets.

The police have told fans to watch out for counterfeit tickets in the run-up to the event, which takes place June 9-10 at Heaton Park. Liam Gallagher, The xx and Skepta are among the artists playing the festival this year.

As Manchester Evening News reports, Great Manchester Police’s Chief Superintendent Graeme Openshaw urged music fans to be vigilant. “We recognise that for an event such as Parklife that there are many people who will be unable to get tickets,” he said.

“Unfortunately every year we deal with unsuspecting victims who buy tickets from touts and get ripped off because the ticket turns out to be a fake or stolen. Our advice would always be that if you don’t know where the ticket has come from and don’t know the person who is selling to you don’t be tempted to buy it.” Parklife Festival also shared the warnings on social media.

We've been alerted by the GMP that very convincing fake Parklife 2018 tickets are in circulation.

Please don't buy off untrusted ticket outlets or strangers – you won’t be able to enter the festival. Official ticket outlets can be found here:

Earlier this year Parklife took the unusual move of banning potato peelers from the festival. The move came after Liam Gallagher’s headline slot prompted multiple requests from fans about the kitchen accessory being allowed into the event. “In case you’re wondering – the answer is most definitely no!” organisers said.

Last year Liam Gallagher asked fans to peel potatoes at his London gig. It was a direct dig at his brother Noel Gallagher‘s appearance on Jools Holland, in which he enlisted someone to play the scissors.

Elsewhere, Chvrches, Lorde and Bonobo, Justice, Everything Everything and Four Tet are among the acts slated to play Parklike 2018.
