In this article the author examines where liability lies for injuries caused by ‘stagediving’and ‘crowd-surfing’ at live music events and festivals amid increasing litigation in this area. Part One looks at the potential causes of action open to an injured crowd member and considers the personal liability of those who engage in stage-diving and crowd-surfing. Part Two considers the potential liability of organisers and occupiers, and the extent to which the wider societal benefits from live music events can shape the appropriate standard of care.
