Planning on watching the show from down the front? The fact you will be in a big crowd may feel uncomfortable and going down the front is a very different experience than being further back in the crowd.
If you are planning to watch the show from the front of the stage, there are some things to be mindful of, including the importance of not starting circle pits:
Don’t start or participate in circle pits – they are dangerous and can cause harm across the full crowd.
Crowd movement happens at all shows and it’s important to help everyone around you if you find yourself in a difficult position.
The event control centre is always monitoring the crowd via CCTV.
Security and ‘spotters’ are on and around the stage watching for anyone who is in need for assistance at all times.
Take time to chill – there are plenty of areas around the event site where you can take a moment.
