Guy Sneaks Backstage At Creamfields, Chats Up Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix & More

If you’re the kind of guy that always tries to go backstage at a festival, then Gerald O’Connor might be your hero. This guy managed to sneak backstage during the performances of numerous headliners at Creamfields.

How did he accomplish such a feat? Try: “a light needs to be propped, let me do”, he said to the guards. He was able to gain access to the backstage and even on-stage with his persistent attitude and impeccable impersonations.

This allowed him to see Avicii’s performance from behind.

Because he enjoyed what he just lived, he decided to share this moment with some friends and went back to the camping stage to pick some. Because guards already knew him, it was easy for him to let his friends walk through security with him. Shane Daly had the chance to watch Alesso backstage thanks to Gerry.

When they were asked what they were doing there by some security guards, they answered they were “assistant management”. Gerry didn’t stop there. He also helped the crew with some work, so it would help him to stay there without any problem.

The next day, he managed to talk to Steve Aoki, saying he was the one who brought the cake. He even had the chance to get to the dj-booth and talk to the DJ.

Gerry wanted to let Paul be backstage. He found two steel plates and gave one to him. Once they approached security guards, he said “this guy is with me“. Paul was now backstage.
