Grange, J.T., Green, S.M., and Downs, W. (1999). Concert Medicine: Spectrum of Medical Problems Encountered at 405 Major Concerts. Academic Emergency Medicine. 6(3): 202-207.
The authors examined patient cases of those reporting to first aid stations at five major concert venues in southern California over a five-year period. They found that music type was only able to account for 4% of injury variability, and trauma-related complaints were most frequent across all types of concerts.
