Whenever you are in a large crowd of overly-excited people, there is a risk of injuries. Then best way to avoid injuries is to do the following:
- Know where the exits are
- If the crowd gets out of control, consider leaving the area
- Do not wear anything that could be pulled or get tangled like loose clothing
- Wear closed-toe shoes and ensure the laces are tied to avoid tripping
- Avoid standing near or on any structures at the venue that could collapse
- Leave late or early to avoid the rush of the crowd when the concert ends
- If you get caught in a moving crowd, move sideways or diagonal to work your way out

Whenever you are at an event with a large crowd of people, you may come away with an unwanted illness due to the frequent contact made between attendees. You should avoid sitting or standing near individuals who appear sick and prevent yourself from touching your face until you are able to wash your hands.
If you are going to the concert with your family, keep a diligent eye on your children. For members of your group that have a mobile phone, it is recommended that each person’s phone is fully charged so you may get in contact if you get seperated at the event. In the event that you do get separated, make sure your group has a chosen meet up location where you will all go to reunite. It is best to try to remain with your group at all times as it is easy to get separated in big crowds like at concerts or events.
