Music festival claims

Music festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival and Reading are popular events that entice people of all ages with their promise of fun and escape. However, this sense of abandon can lead to some revellers behaving in a very different way to how they behave in everyday life, and this kind of behaviour can often be linked with injuries.

Although the majority of incidents that take place at festivals are relatively minor, there will always be some incidents that are attributable to wider organiser or venue-owner safety failings. If you've been injured at a festival because of lacking safety or organiser negligence, you may be able to pursue a claim.

Common injury types caused at a music festival

While the majority of people will have a great time at festivals from Womad to Greenman to Leeds, there will be the occasional injury. Below are common types of injuries that can lead to music festival accident claims:

  • Falling objects - If you are working on the construction of a festival, you could be at risk of heavy scaffolding and other electrical equipment falling from the stage and injuring you.
  • Loss of hearing - While it is the norm that festivals are loud, sound levels must still meet safety standards.
  • Assault injuries - If you are injured by a glass bottle that has been thrown at you, or if you are assaulted in any other way, you may have a claim.
  • Slips, trips and falls - Fields can become sodden and slippery in wet weather. Festival organisers must ensure all walkways are properly fixed down and fire exits are made clearly visible.

Common causes of festival injuries

  • Crowd surfing - This can cause injuries to the head and neck as well as lower limb injuries. Many festival and gig organisers have banned crowd surfing and stage diving.
  • Moshing - Pushing people into the area, or 'pit', in front of the stage, can often become violent, causing bruising and knocks to the head.
