What is Stage diving”

Stage diving is a daring and often crowd-pleasing performance move where a person, typically a musician, leaps off the stage and into the audience during a live concert or performance.

The individual stage diver is typically a musician or performer, and they jump into the crowd with the expectation that the audience will catch them and pass them around.

Stage diving is most common in rock, punk, and other high-energy music genres where the crowd is known for its enthusiasm and participation.

The person jumping off the stage typically trusts the audience to support them and prevent them from falling or getting hurt.

It’s important to note that stage diving can be risky, both for the person diving and for the audience. If the crowd fails to catch the stage diver or does not support them adequately, it can lead to injury.
