Poll: Have you been turned off attending outdoor concerts?

Problems at a gig in the Phoenix Park in July were highlighted in a Garda report yesterday. Would they put you off attending large, outdoor events?

A GARDA REPORT, published yesterday, highlighted a number of reasons for the problems incurred during a recent outdoor concert at the Phoenix Park in Dublin.

The Garda Commissioner described the venue as unsuitable for large-scale dance gigs. An investigation was launched into the event’s security after nine people were stabbed during the Swedish House Mafia concert on 7 July.

With the ensuing controversy and talk about the suitability of music genres and venues, we here at were wondering if attendances will be impacted.

So, in today’s poll, we ask: Following the release of the critical Garda Commissioner report, have you been turned off attending large outdoor concerts?

Poll Results:

Depends on genre of music/venue (782)
No (703)
I don't know (444)
Yes (302)
