Huge numbers of people who went to a Quarantine Rave have been branded seflish and stupid for defying lockdown rules.
One said that ‘thousands’ of revellers turned up at the event at Daisy Nook country park in Oldham.
It was one of two illegal raves held in Greater Manchester last night.
Today, volunteers were clearing up the mess left behind by the unauthorised dance festivals.
Snapchat footage shows a sea of people dancing to thumping music and a sign saying Quarantine Rave is clearly visible.
The other rave was in Trafford, the Manchester Evening News reports.
There were multiple reports of a stabbing in the area, though these have not been confirmed by Greater Manchester Police.
Mass gatherings are still illegal as the country begins to emerge from strict coronavirus lockdown measures.
One woman wrote on Facebook: “Every selfish person who went to this last night should be ashamed.
“Stupidity, inconsiderate idiots.”
Another posted: “Absolutely disgusted at the Quarantine Rave in Daisy Nook last night. Everyone who attended should be ashamed of themselves.”
Somebody else posted: “Absolutel ridiculous. Imagine going to a ‘rave’ in the middle of such a horrendous pandemic.”
Volunteers have today spent hours cleaning up the sites, which are littered with rubbish left behind by revellers.
Sacha Lord, co-creator of the Parklife festival and Night Time Economy Adviser for Greater Manchester, tweeted: “If you are one of the morons who attended one of the illegal raves in Partington and Daisy Nook last night, you are a disgrace.
“You’ve now put yourselves, your friends, your families and loved ones at risk. I’ve seen some of the footage. You aren’t clubbers. Just selfish idiots.”
