How to sneak into a festival/concert ?

Postby James » Wed Jul 26, 2017 4:47 pm

Hello !
This is my first topic here, I was wondering some days ago if some of you ever succeeded at sneaking into an outside festival or concert, most often these events happen during the night and the security can sometimes be busy. So if any of you have tips i'll be very interested about it !

Not in any opping sense, but I did sneak onto a private rooftop residence during a New Year's celebration. Security had fenced off the area and were patrolling, but after finding a gap in both a friend & I slipped through and hung out on a darkened portion of the rooftop to watch the fireworks. Afterwards we mingled with the residents a bit (we were dressed well enough to blend in) and made our way out the front door via the elevator.

Social stealth is useful for these scenarios but goes against everything we strive to teach on this forum. For example, wearing a high-vis vest and carrying a toolbox is pretty stupid for an op, but for gaining entrance to a public event nobody will even question your presence.
We are all books containing thousands of pages and within each lies an irreparable truth.
What is locked, can be opened. What is hidden, can be found. What is yours... can be mine.
