For future event success, event management students must understand health and safety, and manage risks through strategic proactive measures including risk assessment and adhering to legal frameworks. This chapter offers a series of music festival case studies that are used to support the health and safety related lecture content and experiential seminar activities for second-year undergraduate events management students. Event management theory framing the lecture content is included, as well as a discussion of pedagogical theories relating to engagement and inclusivity underpinning the seminar activities. Teaching notes outlining the practical delivery of the health and safety lessons support this chapter.
