The footage shows officers along with medics rushing to the scene where the victim is lying after he was attacked.
The man receives CPR before being put into the back of a police van.
A statement from the force said: “Those attending an illegal rave face the prospect of arrest and prosecution.
“They are utterly unacceptable and we will do all we can to prevent them from happening.
“We’re aware that there are possible further illegal raves being organised in the Greater Manchester area this weekend.
“There will be a dedicated policing operation in place, with a much higher police presence in potential hot spot areas.
“GMP is also liaising with neighbouring forces across the North West and working alongside key partners to broaden our intelligence picture in order to identify and determine where events may take place.”
A number of illegal raves have taken place during the coronavirus outbreak as the government eases the restrictions.
