Security Strategies at Gigs


It’s fair to say that some live music events can get a little bit out of hand, and no matter what venue a band is playing at, there should always be some form of security strategy in place. Small gigs may only include several bouncers, while a team of security guards is more common at larger venues.

These guards will be responsible for removing offensive individuals, checking tickets whether they are legitimate and making sure the crowd is well placed and positioned. Rock gigs where the majority of people are standing can require a great deal of tactical security expertise.

Guards should be able to identify potentially dangerous individuals, whilst making sure any injured people are taken out of the venue. For larger gigs barriers will be needed as well as CCTV so the crowd can be easily monitored. Never underestimate security strategies at small and large music events, because they’re certainly needed to keep people safe.
