    Injured at a music festival


    A combination of large crowds, alcohol consumption, electrical and electronic equipment and often wet weather sadly means it is all too easy to get injured at a music festival.

    Common injuries at music festivals

    The most common injuries at music festivals are those caused by slips, trips and falls. Slip, trip and fall injuries may range from minor bruises, grazes or cuts through sprains or broken limbs to serious neck, head or back injuries.

    Occasionally, performers, stage workers or visitors may also be injured at a music festival by:

    • Malfunctioning equipment
    • Poor or damaged wiring

    Fires or explosions resulting from defective or damaged wiring or equipment may also result in people being injured at a music festival.

    Responsibilities and festival safety

    Organisers of festivals have a legal duty to take all necessary, reasonable precautions to prevent music festival accidents.

    Visitors, performers and others present can also help to prevent slips, trips or falls and other accidental injuries by:

    • Minding their step
    • Acting responsibly at all times
    • Refraining from drinking excessive amounts of alcohol

    Reporting any potential trip, slip or fall hazards to relevant authorities immediately will also help to prevent festival accidents

    Injured at a music festival

    If, through no fault of your own, you suffered an injury at a music festival, be it an injury by slipping, tripping or falling or an injury by electrocution, fire or explosion, or indeed any other kind of no-fault accident, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.

    To claim or not to claim…

    Should you be undecided as to whether it is worth claiming for compensation after a trip, slip or fall, for instance, consider for a moment how and why your music festival mishap occurred.

    Preventing future incidents

    If you were injured at a music festival because organisers did not take the necessary precautions to prevent your accident, you should definitely consider making a claim. If they are not held liable for their breach of duty to protect you, a similar accident with potentially even more serious consequences could happen in the future.

    A claim, on the other hand, may lead to more care being taken to avoid mishaps in the future.

    Eligibility to claim

    On the other hand, if you are simply not sure whether you are entitled to make a public liability claim, we, Accident Advice Helpline, can assist you in establishing your claim eligibility quickly and easily.

    What’s more, we can also provide you with an in-house solicitor with the necessary skills and experience to support you throughout your claim right up to a successful conclusion.
