There are many dangers of going to concerts but if you stay safe they can be really fun.When some of the dangers are said they can seem very scary but, when they are known the risk of it happening is slim to none.. The dangers many include being robbed, being dehydrated, drugs, human trafficking and being kidnapped.

Being robbed is one of the most common crimes to take place at a concert. Almost 300 people are robbed a year at concerts in America, so hide your money in a concealed place. By putting money in your front pocket, your shoe, or other places makes it harder to steal. Also, avoid flashing your money around, if people see you with large sums of money you could become a target.

Concerts can also be a risk for individuals with health problems. People have many heart attacks, seizures, passing out from dehydrated and getting injured from crowd activities. Such as, crowd surfing and mosh pits,When crowd surfers go by you can put your arms over your head and duck down or put your arms up. For a mosh pit protect your head and know what you’re getting into. To avoid a mosh pit surround yourself with people bigger than you. Drinking water is the most essential part of keeping your health in a good state.

Sadly it is very easy to sneak drugs into a concert which many people do making a fun time dangerous for others. To avoid being drugged don’t take drinks from strangers and never let your drink leave your site. Also don’t take drugs from anyone they could be laced with anything  that could be deadly. Many girls get date rape drugged at concerts.

Human trafficking and being kidnapped are sadly very common at concerts, especially for young girls. To avoid this always stay with a friend, don’t go anywhere alone. The buddy system is the safest way to go. Date rape drugs are also a risk so do not take any drinks, food, or drugs from people you don’t know.
