Police are hoping to identify a man as part of an investigation into a robbery at Parklife festival.

Greater Manchester Police officers have said that the victim had a ‘high value chain’ snatched from around his neck at the huge Heaton Park music event.

He had been watching a set at The Hangar stage at around 5pm on Sunday 11 June when the robbery took place.

He was assaulted in the process, but thankfully wasn’t seriously injured.

Officers are now hoping that the public can help to identify the man pictured above.


It’s believed he was with two other men at the time of the robbery at Parklife.

Detective Sergeant Jamie Heaton from GMP’s North Manchester division who is leading the investigation, said: “So far numerous enquiries have been made to try and identify those involved in this robbery.


“We are looking to speak to the man pictured as part of our investigation. We believe he was with two additional men at the time of the alleged offence, who we’d also be keen to come forward.

“I ask anyone who believes they witnessed the incident and can help us identify this man to call 101 quoting log 1522 of Monday 12 June 2023. It is also possible the chain may have now been sold online or at a pawnbroker.

“Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”


Parklife is one of the country’s biggest music events, attracting tens of thousands of fans to Heaton Park every June.

This year’s headliners included Fred Again, The 1975, Aitch, and Skrillex.
