Parklife resells tickets confiscated in anti-tout scheme

The UK’s Parklife festival has announced a new batch of tickets are to be made available following an anti-tout scheme and failed payment plans.

The Manchester event, which is set to attract 82,000 fans each day at Heaton Park next month, will begin selling the new daily and weekend general admission and VIP tickets from Friday (May 12).

Some of the tickets for the LN Gaiety-owned festival have become available due to failed payment plans by intended attendees.

Event organisers also teamed up with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) to secure fake or stolen tickets that were being resold to unsuspecting victims at inflated prices.

Graeme Openshaw, GMP Chief Superintendent, said: “We recognise that for an event such as Parklife that there are many people who will be unable to get tickets. 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 it to you don’t be tempted to buy it.”

Headliners scheduled for this year’s event include 50 Cent, Lewis Capaldi and Megan Thee Stallion.

Weekend tickets across June 11-12 cost £155, with VIP passes at £199.50.
