CROWD SURFING & MOSHING POLICIES

Moshing
What Is Moshing?

  • Moshing occurs when a group of patrons run at and slam into each other during a show. It often takes place in a loosely organized circle within a general admission crowd (a “mosh pit”), although it can be as simple as two people repeatedly running into each other during a show and bouncing off in another direction.
    • Moshing can occur in any area of a general admission crowd, including directly in front of the stages.

What’s the big deal about Moshing?

  • Moshing can be dangerous to both participants and bystanders.
  • Moshers can suffer bruises, cuts, sprains, and broken bones, especially where some participants are bigger than others, are moshing more aggressively, or if someone gets hit when they’re not ready.
  • Moshing is also dangerous for non-participants standing nearby.  A mosher who breaks through the circle can seriously injure a bystander who is just watching the show and not bracing for impact.

I don’t want to Mosh!! What can I do?

  • Be aware of your surroundings!  If you see a Mosh Pit forming near where you’re standing and are uncomfortable being in the proximity of such activities, find an alternate location from which to enjoy the performance!

Crowd Surfing
What is Crowd Surfing?

  • Crowd surfing occurs where a patron is lifted up onto the hands of other patrons, who then pass the surfer along the top of the crowd.  Surfing can take place anywhere in a general admission crowd.
    • Crowd surfing most commonly (but not always) occurs in the areas directly in front of the stages.
    • Surfing most commonly (but not always) travels from the back of the crowd TOWARDS the stage.

What’s the big deal about Crowd Surfing?

  • It is dangerous for both the surfer and other patrons.
  • Crowd surfers have virtually no control of their bodies once they are above the crowd.  Surfers can be groped, hit, or dropped.  Although crowds experienced with surfers generally try to pass them towards the stage, there is no guarantee where or how the ride will end or how the surfer will find their friends in the crowd once they come down.
  • Most of the audience is looking at the Stage!  Surfers literally put their health and safety in the hands of people they don’t know who are paying attention to something else.
  • Surfers also endanger other people.  A crowd surfer struggling to stay aloft can kick someone in the head or poke them with their hands.  Surfing is especially dangerous during an artist’s set, when most patrons are facing the stage and the surfer is being passed from behind them.

I don’t want to Crowd Surf!!  What can I do?

  • Be aware of your surroundings!  If Crowd Surfing is taking place near where you’re standing, and you are uncomfortable being in the proximity of such activities, find an alternate location from which to enjoy the performance!

All of us are responsible for our own safety!  Have a great time at the show and take care of yourself and others!
