    Not true. I got kicked in the back of the head by a crowd surfer last year. I hope he did get beaten by security

    EDIT: But hipsters frown on crowd-surfing, it's not ironic or indifferent enough for them. Their idea of getting involved at a show means putting their hands on their hips, smoking rolled cigarettes, and looking like they don't want to be there

    crowd surfing could be also used just to get out of the massive crowd.
    it may take 15-20 mins just to walk back out of the main stage if your far in enough.

    crowd surfing = fun at the expense of everyone around you

    there might be a little crowd surfing at Flogging Molly or Gogol...

    but for the most part, coachella is more laid back. not much crowd surfing going on.

    crowd surfing is dead, i think stage diving should make a comeback.....got the pleasure of doing it only once, at a rollins band show in 92.....it was soo much fun, and extremely dangerous.....i can see why it's been universally banned.

    but for the most part, i stay very far away from mosh pits and what not.....those days are over, for a reason.

    ps doesnt dj mehdi crowd surf at all his shows????

    some moron tried to stage dive off the railing in front of me during NIN in 2005. People just kinda shoved him out of the way and thought he wasn't cool.

    It's fun to watch when someone is surfed out of the crowd, and there is no guard to catch them after they are tossed over the barrier.

    When I was in high school in the late 90's I went to a lot of punk shows, where stage diving was absolutely encouraged. If people weren't stage diving/crowd surfing/getting dropped on their heads, that meant it was a weak show

    so did i.....i used to be heavily involved in the hardcore scene, and i got beaten up sooo many times, which usually meant it was a great show.....funny how my train of thought was back then.

    Good point! punk is dead, and so is crowd surfing.

    Crowd Surfing Does exist at coachella however it's not to good of an idea. One year some guy hit my friend in the head and then he was unfortunately body slammed to the ground which didn't look too fun. But the guy did get back up and continued his crowd surfing journey.
