Parklife festival’s first day was marred by news that two festival goers were stabbed after a fight broke out at the two day music festival where Snoop Dogg was headlining.
Police have confirmed that one man was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries and remains in a stable condition in hospital. Whilst the other victim was treated for his injuries on site.
Chief Inspector Gary Simpson told the Manchester Evening News: “There have been a few isolated incidents at Parklife Weekender Festival which we believe have involved a weapon and have caused to injuries to five men.
65,000 festival goers braved the rain and mud for Parklife festival yesterday, and despite the news of two stabbings it would seem that the majority of the patrons were well-behaved with GMP reporting they made just 10 arrests.
Slightly more concerning is the fact that all festival goers, including ourselves, were subjected to a thorough search upon entry yet someone still managed to smuggle a knife into the festival.
