CHICAGO — Six festivalgoers were sent to the hospital with injuries from a Riot Fest mosh pit Saturday night.
None of the injuries were serious and only two had minor injuries, the fire department said.
In the middle of their set, the night's headliners Blink-182 told the crowd to step back two feet to add space in front of the stage where people fell to the ground.
"If someone falls, help them up," said Mark Hoppus, one of the band's lead vocalists. "I shouldn't have to tell you that."
The incidents occurred shortly before 10:45 p.m., when cops arrived at the scene.
The six people were taken to Saint Mary, Loretto and Mount Sinai hospitals.
