Parklife Boss Looking For Couple Who Got Engaged On Stage To Pay For Honeymoon After People Troll Proposal
| Last updated
The boss of Parklife is looking for the happy couple who got engaged on stage over the weekend, as he wants to pay for their honeymoon after the proposal was unfortunately trolled by onlookers. Take a look at the incredible moment below:
The lad, Myles Goodfellow, proposed to his long-term girlfriend, Indy Geraghty, on 11 June during Yung Filly's set on the main stage at the popular festival.
With around 80,000 pairs of eyes watching, the brave lad took the next step in their relationship as he headed up to the main stage with his other half and the British singer to pop the question.
Amazingly, Indy said yes which resulted in the crowd at Manchester's Heaton Park erupting in cheers and applause.
Well wishes have been flooding in online for the couple, with one onlooker penning: “Congratulations! Blessings for your wonderful life together.”
Another said: “Soo happy for you both, congratulations," while another just couldn't contain their envy: "Man I wish I got proposed to at Yung Filly.”
Myles’ sister, Holly, also filmed the special moment and wrote on social media: “Just my brother casually proposing on the main stage at Parklife. That’s one way to do it!”
But sadly, it didn't take long for some to start making fun of the token of love.
However, after seeing the trolls online, the event's boss is now searching for the newly-engaged couple to gift them a post-wedding holiday that they won't forget.
Sacha Lord, the mind behind the hugely successful festival, told Manchester Evening News that he wants to make their special day even more special with the trip of a lifetime – as well as free entry to Parklife and The Warehouse Project for life.
He told the publication: "They’ll never have to pay to come to any of our events again, whether it’s Parklife or the Warehouse Project, but I want to take a further step.
"I want to pay for the honeymoon. And when they go away, I want them to sit there in the sun posting pictures to social media, knowing that those people who had a go at them are bitter, and they’re not there.
"So let’s find them, and let’s look after them.”
Lord then addressed the negativity surrounding the proposal further, saying: "Imagine a young couple like that, they’ve probably spent the last two years having a really rough time with lockdown.
"Imagine being in their shoes and you get engaged on the main stage at Parklife, in front of 80,000 people and it’s a moment you’re going to cherish for the rest of your life.
"Then you wake up and look at social media and a load of people who sit in their mum’s back bedroom and hide behind false profiles and they’re writing nasty comments."
He added: "For those kids to read that, and their family, it would be heartbreaking. I think it’s disgusting and I think it’s vile.
"Sadly, some people have to put up with trolls, and it’s a way of life. But I think we should be learning. I want them to cherish that moment."
