    Top 5 accidents at rural music festivals


    Ever popular, rural music festivals are unfortunately occasionally the scene of accidental injuries. Here are some of the most common accidents at music festivals.

    Top 5 accidents at rural music festivals

    The most common accidents at rural music festivals are:

    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Injuries by other individuals
    • Loss of hearing
    • Food poisoning
    • Crushing injuries

    Let’s look at these accidents in a little more detail.

    Slips, trips and falls

    By far the most common accidents at rural music festivals, trips, slips and falls are typically caused by uneven ground, muddy fields and wet flooring or stairs.

    Injuries by other individuals

    Music festivals usually mean copious consumption of alcohol. Personal injuries may be caused by anything from people drunkenly stumbling into you to drunken spectators diving on and off stages.

    Loss of hearing

    Piercing feedback or standing close to excessively loud speakers and amps can cause both temporary and permanent hearing loss.

    Food poisoning

    Hot dogs and burgers sold on food stalls at music festivals are sadly not always stored and/or cooked properly. Resulting food poisoning infections are especially unpleasant while camping and may require medical attention.

    Crushing injuries

    The most serious, but thankfully also rarest, injuries at music festivals are crushing injuries. Including anything from cracked or fractured ribs to punctured lungs, these injuries are typically the result of large crowds pushing forward or someone getting trampled underfoot after being knocked to the ground.

    Making a claim

    If you were injured at a music festival in the last three years and someone else was responsible for your injury, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.
