How to stay safe at outdoor events

Whether it’s a music concert or some festive celebration, outdoor events are the most enjoyable activities to attend. But, with all the fun you need to make sure that you’re taking safety measures to stay safe during your next outdoor event.  Meghna (name changed) is an ardent fan of Raftaar and makes it a point to attend all his festival, concerts and live performances every time he performs in Delhi Region. “While the Music and the Ambience are generally good, what always bothers me is the crowd and the coming back from these venues. Though I always go out with my gang still you know how things can get ugly” she adds with a frown.
 
This is a dilemma for most music lovers in the city. While we always maintain “Saddi Dilli” is the best Meghna’s problems can be found echoing from most ladies in other cities who want to attend concerts and live performances but either give up from going or come back early for the same reasons.
 
One such mega Food Concert planned in Delhi this October the Confused Desi Food Concert organized by Divergent Brat Hospitality and Localturnon (India’s #1 Music Dance Connect Platform) very well understands. “Right from the event timings that ensure day end by 10 PM, to the entry sections, separate queues, female only access areas, continuous monitoring through CCTVs, over 25 volunteers who double up as security mechanism at the Venue, we are trying to ensure that the event is a smooth affair for all” says Tajinder Bagga , Founder and CEO, Localturnon (https://www.localturnon.com)
 
Yes, while we have all these checks in place once the guest is out of the venue they are responsible for their own safety and that’s where MACE Brand India comes in.  The following safety tips offer women the ability to have a great fun at outdoor events and gatherings while staying safe:  

  1. Make sure you know where the exits are

  2. Leave early or late to avoid the rush when the event is over

  3. Stay away from suspicious, intoxicated & troublemaking people
