A Scouse lad decided to get creative in an attempt to sneak into Glastonbury after he rocked up to the festival with a woman's ticket.
The unnamed man was spotted by people at the UK's biggest music festival wearing a wig and a dress, and it was later revealed on social media that he had arrived with a woman's ticket and needed to fool security to gain access to the event.
As per festival guidelines, attendees must present photo ID to gain entry, so the music lover quickly stepped into action and dressed as a woman.
Twitter user @LoriHartx first shared details of the young man's bold attempt, writing: "Day one of Glasto and a scouse lad came up to me in a wig and dress because he had a woman’s ticket."

She then posted a video that showed the man sporting a blonde wig, a dress and sunglasses as part of his disguise. The video has since racked up more than 162,000 views, and many social media users have been left in stitches at the inventive approach.
One user wrote: "I want to see the picture on the ticket to see the resemblance for him to get in."
Another added: "Hands down the best blag I’ve seen to date."
A third user wrote: "Outstanding effort."

While many people were eager to know if his efforts paid off, Lori revealed that she lost the man in the queue and could not confirm whether or not he made it into the venue.
However, the power of social media once again remains unmatched, as one user replied with a picture of him sitting on the floor, still wearing his wig, suggesting that the get-up had fooled security.
Social media users were happy to learn the dedicated lad had gained access to the festival after queueing for three hours.
The official Glastonbury Festival website states that 'all tickets for the Festival are individually personalised to the named ticket holder and are strictly non-transferable. Security checks are carried out on arrival, and only the specified ticket holder will be admitted to the Festival'.
As photo ID is a requirement to gain entry to the sold-out event, it's no surprise the bold young man went as far as he did.
Glastonbury Festival kicked off on 22 June and this year marks its 50th anniversary after a two-year hiatus following the pandemic. Festival-goers will see the likes of Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar headlining the world-famous Pyramid Stage.
