Concerts and music festivals are the perfect way to see your favourite musician or band live, along with other fans who share your passion. Whether it’s an intimate venue, a stadium tour or a huge summer festival, every year fans flock to see their favourite acts and, usually, have a fantastic time.
Concert organisers and venues have a duty of care to ensure the safety of the audience at concerts and festivals and – most of the time – they fulfil this duty. However, on occasion, there are instances of negligence resulting in accidents or injuries for concertgoers. The responsibilities of the organisers stretch to several aspects such as having stewards present who can control the crowd and deliver necessary first aid if someone becomes ill or is injured. There should also be security present to ensure troublemakers are removed from the venue.
The venue itself – whether indoor or outdoor – should also be maintained to a standard that ensures safety. There should be no hazards that could cause a slip, trip or fall, for instance, and fire safety regulations should be adhered to. Food and drinks vendors (whether in-house or external) should meet all hygiene and safety regulations and facilities such as toilets should also be regularly maintained.
If the organisers and venue have not seen to these things, then they could be liable if you were to be injured during the concert or festival. If you think that they might be at fault for your accident or injury at a concert or music festival, contact the team at First Personal Injury who will be able to assess liability and handle your claim on a no win no fee basis.

Injuries at concerts and music festivals can be very serious – especially if there are not any trained first aiders immediately on the scene to administer treatment. Common claims for compensation arising from concerts and music festivals include:
Even minor injuries can have serious consequences, including loss of earnings due to time spent off work. You may need to have medical care, time for rehabilitation and more serious ailments may also require changes to your home or other aspects of your life. Compensation can help by covering costs, reimbursing lost earnings and hopefully bring some comfort and closure to the pain and stress endured when injured and out of work.
