Police have prevented an illegal rave from taking place in Greater Manchester this weekend.
In a statement GMP said:
“officers successfully dismantled a planned illegal rave by engaging with audio equipment suppliers after conducting a number of enquiries.”
Preventing these events from taking place is incredibly important to ensure the safety of everyone across Greater Manchester. These raves pose significant risks as previous events have demonstrated and we’re committed to working with our partners to prevent further raves from taking place.
We understand from social media that the event organisers are incredibly unhappy and have posted some derogatory statements. We would like to thank members of our community for working with us and reporting information to support our investigations. These events are unacceptable, they put lives at risk and they will not be tolerated.
An investigation is underway to establish the full circumstances around the organisation of this cancelled event.
