Warped Tour Telling Fans "No Moshing, No Crowdsurfing"



Quote:
Although organizers of the Warped Tour have attempted to prevent mosh pits in the past (last year they asked bands not to ask for pits), this year they've gone a step further by hanging banners at each stage that say "no moshing/crowd surfing." Today was the first day of Warped Tour 2014, and a photo of one of the banners can be seen below.

We understand the legal reasons for doing this, but unless they attempt to kick people out for partaking, which would be nearly impossible, it doesn't seem likely that moshing and crowd surfing won't take place. Perhaps just hanging the banners gives them added legal protection? Regardless, reports from today's Warped Tour indicate that some fans are indeed ignoring the banners.
Well from what I understand they are simply hanging the banner to avoid lawsuits.

Last time ETID played Warped I crowdsurfed 15 times during the set and if they think I'm not throwing down for Terror, TGI ,and ETID then they have another thing coming.

Didn't know it was posted, and yeah I guessed that. one venue around me has a sign that says "no slam dancing, no stagediving" but they allow it anyway.

Just thought it was funny for Warped Tour of all things to have it.

Even the Chain Reaction has a sign up that says "NO MOSHING, NO STAGE DIVING" and I've never seen more stage diving in my life.
