Are Festivals Safe?
This year, it could be argued, more than any other year music events have suffered from negative headlines.
Alleged crimes at various events in Britain as well as the disaster at Love Parade in Germany has led to questions over safety.
A simple Google search on ‘Bestival’ which took place this weekend, brings up media reports of a road death, ahead of any reviews on the main acts that were performing there.
But are music festivals really deserving of this kind of press? Or are they genuinely getting more risky and dangerous?
