On Monday (May 22), 22 people died and at least 59 were left suffering from injuries – some life threatening at a sold-out music concert in Manchester. Police are treating this as a yet another terrorist incident.
The news has created rage, sorrow, and sympathy across the country, especially as the attack was aimed at children and young people simply getting together to enjoy music.
This attack was meant to instill fear and change our behaviors.
But will this affect how young people attend festivals and concerts?
Upcoming festivals and events are putting special security and risk assessment procedures in place and police are clearly more visible. Does this remove the fear from young audiences or will the increased threat level put music lovers off from attending large-scale concerts in future?
We conducted a poll on our Twitter to see what effects this terror had on the public and their current views on attending live music events.
