Rock Concert Safety Survey™ Reports
The annual Rock Concert Safety Survey™ Reports, published by Crowd Management
Strategies, review popular (rock, pop, rap, reggae, etc.)
concert and festival crowd safety incidents, trends and issues worldwide.
No other publication delivers the wealth of information and the candid and
substantive recommendations that can make your job of providing a safe environment
for concert and festival audiences easier. Each report offers additional
value, as well: We help you build your own crowd management reference library,
and our glossary is unique because it translates concert jargon. For instance,
you'll learn the difference between a bum-rush and a stub-down.
Hot issues? You'll find them in our reports. Before the rock concert
industry acknowledged the growing dangers of mosh pits, our readers were
putting into place our moshing guidelines. That's
just one of the many reasons the authoritative Rock Concert
Safety Survey™ Reports, (drawn from the powerful Rock
Safety Database™) are the most influential crowd management publications
in the music concert industry.
"Your info was
instrumental in us
having a safe fair."
