Crowd Check | Method To Quickly Exit a Crowded Venue

by | Nov 7, 2021 | Random Ideas | 0 comments

In light of recent events at Astroworld 2021, I wrote this up. Maybe it will help, maybe know one will give it a thought but it’s worth a shot.

I’ve been to packed shows, and I know that it can get real tight real fast.  Trying to get out of a large crowd can be impossible.  Falling in a heavy, highly energetic crowd can be deadly.  Exhaustion is a main cause of falling, and many likely try to exit before becoming fully exhausted.


The idea:

This could also be said before starting, or during a concert by the artist.

“Crowd check time: If you are having a rough time and need to get out of the crowd, now’s your chance, turn around and give the people behind you the thumbs down. People, if someone gives you the thumbs down, get out their way, clear a path, let them get out. – if they cant walk, someone takes them out. You might just save their life.”

If something like this were to catch on, and people knew to use the thumbs down while facing away from the stage could help open a hole, it could potentially help people exit. Same for those facing someone trying to get out, they may realize the importance of getting out of their way.
