When most people hear the words mosh pit what normally goes through people’s heads are wild, crazy, and dangerous. Yes mosh pits are wild and crazy and can be dangerous at times but that doesn’t stop people from having a really fun time. Mosh pits shouldn’t be ban by the city because they are a great experience, entertaining, and for some people a hobby and passion. A lot of people who disagree with this side of the argument will say how dangerous and harmful mosh pits are to people. The truth is that people have the choice to go and participate in a mosh pit will full knowledge of what might happen. If someone is afraid of them and doesn’t like mosh pits then they should stay away from them. Just like some people swim, and other paint, some people go to mosh pits. Being a part of a mosh pit isn’t just a thrill but it’s a hobby for some. Banning mosh pits is like taking away a hobby that people love, just because other people don’t like it. That just don’t seem right or fair to the people who love mosh pits. For the people who hate mosh pits, they don’t have to be a part of it what so ever. A lot of concerts and things of that nature allow festival seating that allows a mosh pit area. If people know this then don’t know have to be around it.
In conclusion banning mosh pits would be ridiculous because it’s a choice driven act for people to attend them, it’s a hobby for a lot of people and it’s a fun exiting thing to get involved in. Banning mosh pits would take

The Failure of the American Presidency
"Mosh" by Eminem is a protest song that was released in 2004 before the presidential election. The word "Mosh" itself refers the aggressive behavior in which audience members or fans react in a live music performance.

Q5) The organisers could make the patrons sign a safety or liability waiver if they choose to enter the mosh pit saying that the individual accepts full responsibility for their own safety. They could also have an instruction demonstration before shows to show the dangers of crowd surfing or have written on tickets or on their website a warning of the dangers…
intertwined with the social and music scene in their hometown. In fact, most people there at the show were acquaintances or friends of the band. They are world- renowned for their unique sound, flare and live
performances, filled with mosh-pits and crowd diving. The guitarist, Dave Witte really stood out to me with his level of performance. He is fast and technical. He really brought balance to the other instrumentals.
All in all, they played about 11 three minute songs. The energy was…
get more into the music than by just listening to a song by themselves at home or on the radio while in the car. At concerts people can get very wild. At metal and rock concerts, the band performing and sometimes even the crowd will start a mosh pit. A mosh pit is when multiple people will start dancing wildly by swinging their arms, stomping, and even pushing and shoving. This very heavily affects a crowd’s mood by getting them more excited.

Another point brought up about EDM is how similar peoples responses were to music that they are basing their definition of authentic music on. “Jazz was like that, Punk, Rock’n’Roll. It’s got the same history.” When Jazz came out, as…
dressed themselves the same fashion that Rocky has created. The new form of swag.
ASAP Mob was rolling blunts, the crowd was passing joints while moving in the “swerve” motion. Left, back, right, forward. The crowd had started three different mosh pits, while others were crowd surfing. Slowly I noticed many girls and shorter people try to push their way to the back of the crowd because the front had become so overly packed. I pushed myself forward. Being short myself, I found myself almost suffocating…
world is reciprocal
* Deindividuation occurs when being part of a group reduces personal identity and erodes the sense of personal responsibility
* Example: Wild street celebrations after a victory, mosh pits, riots, etc...
* People act this way because of anonymity; no one will be able to identify us when we're a part of a group
* Example: Ku Klux Klan
