A cheeky reveller printed off his own ‘lifetime access pass’ in an attempt to get free entry to his favourite events.
Security at Manchester's Warehouse Project were dumbfounded when a "little scoundrel" turned up on Saturday night with an official looking black card.
The have-a-go raver, Ellis Hall later admitted his ticket "Came out the printer last Tuesday".
Ellis may have been busted on the door but his efforts have since been rewarded with a real pass from the event's co-founder, Manchester Evening News reports.
The pass hailed on Twitter as looking "professional" was shown to security staff at the Depot Mayfield ahead of the Adam Beyer Presents Drumcode event.
It read: “This pass grants the holder lifetime access to WHP events and Parklife.
"Staff notice, ensure name matches pass before granting entry."
But Warehouse Project and Parklife boss Sacha Lord clocked onto the clever attempt.
In a tweet, he said: “A new one last night. Someone tried to get in, by making themselves a 'Lifetime Access Pass to WHP and Parklife.'
"Caused a bit of confusion, but impressive!"

It’s unclear whether the man managed to gain access to the event, which included shows from Alan Fitzpatrick and Rebūke.
Sacha later tweeted saying he had been in touch with the man, who he called a “little scoundrel,” granting him a real lifetime access pass for his efforts.
He said: “Just as an update. I’ve been in contact with the little scoundrel and have given him Lifetime Access for effort.

Mr Lord was not alone in appreciating the lengths Ellis went to.
World famous DJ Eric Prydz reacted to a photo of the makeshift card with a series of laughing emojis.
One Twitter user commented: "Can't knock them for trying that's skillful."
Another said: "Amazing ingenuity there! Got to be commended…"
"Was going to suggest deserved for the brazen audacity – and a pretty professional job made of it," a third added.
