Tight crowds and crowd surfing
If you feel uncomfortable in a large crowd of people, avoid the front of the stage and other congested places. However, if you do find yourself trapped in a sea of people, stay calm. Don’t resist the pressure, but move with the mass. Try to get out of the crowd when you see an opening. Ask the person next to you for help, if you need it. Be considerate of other festivalgoers even when you’re enjoying the party.
As at all big festivals, crowd surfing is banned at Ruisrock. The purpose of this ban is to avoid overcrowding and dangerous situations in front of the stages. You may not get up on your friend’s shoulders either.
