    Exactly. If you listen to fast or heavy music and you plan on seeing a band that plays that style, expect a pit to break out. Just stand to the side. Of course your going to get bumped into but it's nothing to have a heart attack over. Just go, stay out of the pit and watch the band you came to see. Don't let the people who mosh ruin it for you.

    What ruins a show, like Dan pointed out, is some person behind you screaming the lyrics. That is far more obnoxious than a pit around you


    and I despise hardcore dancing and it certainly will not be welcome at Coachella

    I think that we should all agree on sitting indian style for all shows. This has several advantages that I would like everyone to consider. 1.) indian style seating arrangements are not conducive to mosh pits; 2.) indian style seating allows everyone to have a better view of the bands, including short people in the back; 3.) indian style seating allows more people to fit within the tent.

    Case in point: In the fourth grade our class was concerned about fitting all six grade levels into the gymnasium for our class production of "Snow White". You wanna know what saved the day? That's right, indian style seating.

    Or watch and stay away.

    You may think a pit is scary, but it is an adrenaline rush the first time you go in

    I don't mind moshing, but only during hard rock, and punk shows. People do mosh to some ridiculously slow/mellow music.

    Circle pits at punk shows are the best

    but if someone starts moshing at tame shows I don't take part in it

    it doesn't get me pumped up

    For me ill join when ever I am in the mood to mosh.. you don't have to be in it if you don't like it... and it will eventually die out.

    I once saw someone try to pit to a bass note looped over and over again. It was ridiculous.

    That's the first time I've ever seen a skipping circle in the tents. Those tents are usually too crowded by the time the band starts for them to even get formed.

    Wait! I'm sure I saw Jane Fonda and Richrd Simmons in that video. In 20 years from now these kids will start the "Pit Exercise Video" revolution. It'll seem so nostalgic.

    I am not reading through this retarded wasteland know as a thread. But here is my 2 cents anyways.

    When the music permits, moshing is appropriate.

    Examples of bands at Coachella that will have mosh pits: Genghis Tron, Mastadon, Turbonegro, Billy Talent, Fucked Up

    Examples of bands that MIGHT have mosh pits: Franz Ferdinand, The Black Keys, Ghostland Observatory, Crystal Castles, A Place To Bury Strangers, MSTRKRFT, Micheal Franti & Spearhead, Henry Rollins (spoken word mosh pits are amazing... don't doubt it. I've seen one. It was hilarious), Liars, X, No Age, The Gaslight Anthem

    Examples of bands that wont have mosh pits: Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, Beirut, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, The Cure, MBV, Antony & The Johnson, etc, etc...

    And don't expect any HARDCORE mosh pits. I mean more friendly types of mosh pits. You will find no slam dancing at Coachella.

    Some of the best times of my life have been during moshing sessions. The feeling of hitting another man from the side with your shoulder (moshing is about ninety degree angles...you never take them directly in the front or the back). Where else can you get away with pushing people? Pushing complete strangers with playful force, but never smiling about it. And the aroma, the aroma of male sweat possibly only surpassed by a gym lockerroom at the YMCA. There should always be a place to mosh.

    lol i really want to mosh during Henry Rollin's spoken word. Was he pissed when that broke out or did he encourage it? that's hilarious

    Sorry, I was too vague. The spoken word mosh pit was during a spoken word lecture by Andrew W.K. He started running around the theatre in circles screaming. Soon enough, almost the entire theatre was running around the seats in a giant circle pit... in a seated theatre. It turned into a giant dogpile at the front. It was hilarious. Just prior to this, Andrew W.K. broke a table.

    Best. Spoken Word. Performance. EVER!

    I always spell MastOdon wrong. I gotta stop that.

    And The Prodigy are NOT going to be added.

    EDIT: The Prodigy doesn't fit the dots. The Specials do though. If they are added, I will die. But I really don't think they will though. I see it as possible. But I highly doubt it. I don't wanna get my expectations too high.
