Couple receive lifetime festival passes after getting engaged at Parklife

A young couple who got engaged on stage at Parklife Festival have received lifetime passes to the event and a fully expensed honeymoon.

Myles Goodfellow, 25 proposed to Indy Geraghty, 23 on stage during Yung Filly’s set. Geraghty believed that her now-fiancé had blagged backstage passes through a competition.

After the video went viral, trolls began heckling the couple online. In response, Parklife founder and Warehouse Project boss Sacha Lord gifted the pair an all-expensed honeymoon and tickets granting them access to the festival and the Manchester event series for the rest of their lives.

“Unfortunately, the internet reaction to two young people sharing a special moment was quite frankly vile,” Lord shared in a post on Instagram on Tuesday, June 13, alongside a picture of the Scottish couple on stage.

“Yesterday an amazing moment happened as Parklife saw a proposal on stage from a young couple. I would like to find this couple and give them free entry to Parklife and The Warehouse Project for life,” he said.

“And not only that, but to pay for their honeymoon, so that 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.”

Geraghty responded directly to Lord in the post, where she was pictured on stage in tears as Goodfellow crouches on one knee. “I’m so emotional right now, thank you so much,” she said.

Speaking to ITV News, Goodfellow said that he had the idea to propose at the festival after purchasing tickets to the events two months prior. The couple, who have been together for some seven years, responded to the online trolling they received saying: “We're not going to let it affect us. You get it with the internet all the time.”

"I was nervous in the build-up but as soon as I walked on stage I was pretty confident,” Goodfellow told ITV. “I knew I was going to make Indy happy, and that's all I was thinking about at the time.”
