Linkin Park joined “The Event Safety Alliance, which is a really great organisation! There have been so many tragedies during festivals and concerts lately (just think about the Loveparade in Germany where over 20 people died), it’s great that there are people who care about the fans’ safety during such events.
Here’s the official press release:
Internationally acclaimed recording artists Linkin Park and Phish are proud to announce that they have adopted the “Addendum for Structural Safety” in their contracts.
One of the stated goals of the Event Safety Alliance is to encourage all artists to adopt clear and concise language in their contracts with regard to safety guidelines and event action plans. The intended result is that all involved in the production of a live event have reference materials available to them that will guide decisions during different circumstances and conditions that develop during the course of these events.
These two high profile artists are the first in what will hopefully become a very long list of artists who use language in their contracts to advance the culture of public safety and welfare at live events in both the United States and worldwide.
