The pit is the sweet spot that photographers and writers get for a short period of time to convey their message about concerts, events, sports and more. The general rule of thumb is three songs and gone. The Pit Magazine has great photographers and writers conveying their message from the pit.
In some cases, at some music events, the pit is the place to do your style of “dancing”. From line dancing at country/western shows to the wall of death at most any metal show, it is all about expression and participation.
