I fly over concerts - but it's with venues', bands', local police and promoters' permission and NOT directly over the crowd.
In the UK it would be illegal without CAA permission.

Isn't it something on how they have put all that garbage wording in something just to say something. Ridiculous.
so its ok, if we're 3001 feet up?
probably not. You'll find yourself mostlikely in some other airspace where they would just haul you in to court.
simple answer is don't do it.
This is about as far as I've gone
I'd never risk flying over a large crowd, there's always that .001% chance (probably considerably higher), that something could fail.
we've seen this one before
You'r straying into dangerous territory. That's the type of behavior that will get us in trouble
i really want to do this. however i am more concerned with peoples safety and am really hesitant?
is this even legal to do?
if it's controlled airspace, you can't fly. If you are in the US, the FAA is taking a very dim view of our operations and are planning to restrict us next year. Every encursion into controlled airspace makes them look into tightening the rules more. Please don't put our hobby at risk.
