If you are going to a concert and want to enjoy the night, where you stand is critical. There are different spots around the venue which will be ideal for certain people, whilst other places will absolutely ruin their night for them. Depending on what kind of person you are, and who you are with, will depend on where you want to stand for this gig, and this can affect your safety as well.
If you are working at a concert then you will probably mostly be confined to the back and sides, or at the bar, keeping people in their places, but you should still be careful in certain areas that you aren’t crushed or placed in a vulnerable position.
- At the front. The front of a gig is for the diehard fans, and people who want to have that closeness with the band themselves. Only people who want to get truly involved in the concert, and are happy to deal with being pushed or even hit should even bother trying to stand at the front.
- In the middle. The middle of any crowd is where the dancers tend to go. This doesn’t mean that you can’t dance anywhere else, but the middle is where most people will stand who want to dance and move about throughout the entire show.
- At the side. The side of the stage and the main floor is the best place to stand for people who want to be able to see the whole show but aren’t particularly interested in getting too involved. Very young people, older audience members and those who are more nervous about crowds should stand at the side.
- At the back. The back of the crowd is really only for the very tall, and those who are chaperoning other people. You won’t be able to see very much, but should have a good opportunity to hear the band, and be able to get to the bar easily.
