Crowd collapses and surges

Thousands of people are expected ACL Fest, and large crowds can pose a hazard.

Crowd collapses and surges are real and can happen. It’s important to avoid moving further into a dense crowd.

Be especially careful about this if you have any small children with you. In densely crowded situations you are putting yourself at risk for “compressive asphyxia,” an intense pressure that stops you from breathing.

Just say no to crowd surfing

There is a high risk of getting hurt, breaking bones, and hurting others. A lot of festivals are actually trying to ban this type of behavior from happening after seeing multiple injuries occur.
