Who Is Liable for Injuries Sustained at Music Festivals?

Music festivals can be a fun summertime activity, but they can also pose dangers to concertgoers, particularly when negligent parties are in charge of organizing and overseeing the event. If you plan to attend a music festival sometime this summer, make sure to read up on premises liability laws to protect your rights.

Music Festival Hazards

Large numbers of people, such as those present at music festivals, put a strain on festival facilities. As such, there are various ways concertgoers may be injured at a festival, including:

  • Inadequate safety considerations and personnel

  • Defective equipment (platforms, lighting, seats)

  • Hazardous venue conditions

  • Violent or dangerous actions on the part of performers, staff, or attendees

Liable Parties

When accidents like these happen at a music festival, multiple parties may be held liable, including the following:

  • Event organizers

  • Venue owners

  • Security personnel

  • Third-party food and drink vendors

  • Maintenance staff

In order to determine which party is liable and prove negligence, you must show that the responsible party’s negligent actions caused unsafe conditions and in turn, your accident and injury. When pursuing an injury claim against festival or event organizers, it’s important to note that many event organizers carry concert insurance to protect against risks. Concert insurance policies typically cover various liability issues commonly found at large-scale events and festivals.

With this in mind, it’s vital to contact a qualified personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the legal process involved with a premises liability claim. You shouldn’t have to pay for unsafe or hazardous conditions put in place by an irresponsible event organizer.
