    After cruise thought : Security question

    by ttiger » Tue Jan 27, 2015 8:03 am

    Well is this just me or all those drunk guys jumping and belly splashing in the jacuzzi was just dangerous, if not lethal.... i mean, the jacuzzi is not really deep and someone could get very badly hurt!! No security guy ever think to tell them to not doing it? I mean broke your backbone and/or die is pretty easy doing that kind of move in not deep water.

    they were taking buckets away from people after all the splashing during Cannibal Corpse.
    All in all I thought security did a great job and pretty much let people do what they wanted, within reason

    Security were great as always. A few new guys that were a bit green early, but learnt quickly.

    Utmost respect for them all - great guys who I miss almost as much as my metal family!

    Most of the security staff was great in my opinion. The only thing they didn't seem to understand at first was that crowdsurfers should NOT be pushed back into the crowd but taken down and sent their way, but eventually they got that one right. All in all, nice people.

    We told them to take them down for the first 2 days, and they finally did it. At first they told us they understand but they had to follow the order that was to push them back. After 2 days they finally take them down and I thanked them for it. They told me that it was a lot more fun for them to push them back :?
    They we're all very friendly and nice after all.

    The guys working the theater the first two days were assholes. I was watching them from the balcony during Wintersun pushing the crowd surfers back and then when they took them down they were gripping them up by the back of the neck and arms then sending them over to the next guy for a talking to. It was really getting on my nerves, I wanted to go down there and punch that one bald fuck in his mouth. Aside from there on the first two days everyone else was cool.

    I liked the way they handeled Media.
    3 songs and then you are out.
    but with how early you need to be their to get a front row spot, my suggestion is no Media for the 1st song and then 3 songs and you are out

    That's the standard in Europe, except for a few designated photographers that can stay as long as they want, and even go on the sides and back of the stage.

    Makes a lot of sense, glad that is the case now. Get what you need and then GTFO lol. No one else other than band official professional photographers and fans after that.

    That was why we eventually just started carrying folks through the pit. It was less dangerous than what those dudes were doing. :P

    So the first evening in the theatre, we were talking to this new security guy in the pit (we were standing front and centre on the barrier)

    He was telling us that, when security caught a crowd surfer, they were going to put them down feet first in front of us at the barrier. So if we wanted to keep our spot at the front of the barrier, WE had to force the crowd surfers back otherwise we would lose our spot to them.

    Basically he was telling us that we had to do his job for him!!!!

    Obviously, that did NOT work out so well for Mr. Securityguy!

    Never heard of this.Last time i remember most festivals in Germany atleast you can crowdsurf as much as you want.It's securities job to keep you safe aswell as the others in the crowd.So the security when they handle crowdsurfers they don't rough them up.They ensure the surfers come over the barriers without harm.And take them over carefully.

    Then again to compare these situations to Europe in general would be stupid as would be to this fake 3 songs and your out deal.In many Irish venues the security will drag you and rip your tshirt to get you over the barriers.
    The most important factors are not the country but the venue itself as they have the deciding rule on it.

    Btw circle pits in the hot tubs sounds completly fucking stupid and something that would only cause harm.I am happy to hear the security was wise to stop this kind of idiocy.

    Incorrect! This only happened during a couple of bands. And with the amount of media and the small size of the photo pit you really can't do 3 songs and out.

    Pit shifts! oh they're fun, aren't they Birgit!

    It's like musical chairs, but most photographers are good to each other, start right and move your way down.
