2024 ‘Rock Fest’ Outlines New Moshing Policy, ‘Hardcore Dancing Styles’ Not Permitted


0

The annual ‘Rock Fest‘ event held in Cadott, WI has rolled out a list of ‘improvements’ for this year’s edition of the festival. While various upgraded amenities, including rentable lockers, ‘top tier lounge bathrooms’ and more are listed, there’s also an array of changes to moshing.

As part of that change, the festival’s organizers have stated that ‘hardcore dancing styles or flail moshing will not be permitted’. Whether or not this extends to crowd killers, or those merely hoping to windmill and pick up change remains to be seen. The full statement regarding moshing reads as follows:

“In the past, we’ve held back on moshing at ‘Rock Fest‘ to ensure everyone’s safety, which is our top priority. We know, however, that moshing is a vital part of rockers’ release and metal experience for many of you we’ve listened to your feedback and are excited to introduce a moshing area at the Budweiser Boneyard Stage as a pilot program.

This allows us to embrace the energy of moshing while maintaining a safe environment for all festival-goers. We’re setting up designated zones for both moshers and non-moshers, ensuring everyone can still enjoy the show up close. please note, for everyone’s safety, hardcore dancing styles flail moshing will not be permitted. Lets rock responsibly, keep an eye out for our brothers and sisters, and make this a memorable addition to Rock Fest 2024!”
