That Frank Carter guy and his Rattlesnakes bandmates are a bunch of good eggs who we can’t praise enough, especially after their performance at Reading Festival over the weekend when they stopped their show, asked the guys in the audience to create a moshpit, then made them all stay out of it so the women in attendance could have their own mosh, without the fear of being hurt by rogue crowd-killers.
In the video, Frank declared:
“Fellas, guys, nice one, good work there men! You have opened up the moshpits and declared your testosterone as ruler and now what I’m gonna do is tell you to move the fuck out of the way because these are girls only moshpits. Girls only. I promise you, you will never see a happier fuckin’ moshpit in your life, than the moshpits you’re about to witness. They are a prime example of how rock and roll can be a lot of mother-fucking fun without hurting anybody.”
The happiest mosh pit you’ll ever seeThe happiest mosh pit you will ever see.

It really was the “happiest moshpit you’ll ever see” and something we’re all for. Who knows if he’ll continue the tradition in Australia next year on their headline tour, but either way, we can’t wait…
