From what I've read on here I feel pretty lucky about our place in the crowd. Everyone was dancing and singing along, a load of nice jumping up and down for TiRO and KoC and some pretty entertaining shouts from the people behind us.
We started of on Matt's side quite near to the middle barrier but after 2 songs I just thought fuck this, so me and my sister moved along untill there was space.
I completely get why people want to mosh about but for me, it's just not why I go to a gig. I want to be able to hear the music, sing along and jump about a bit without being so far back you can't even see them. Not get so squished I pass out from the heat after 3 songs. So I personally love the 'flat' areas in the crowd.
