The clip from a festival in Norway has spread quickly online - but we've seen WAY bigger...

Over the last couple of days, you may have seen this video of a moshpit breaking out in the crowd at a gig by noted rap pop UK megastar Tinie Tempah doing the rounds on social media.

According to NME, Tinie was playing at Landstreff Stavanger festival in Norway, sharing the footage online afterwards with the comment "Holy moly… I feel sorry for the girl in the middle."

And look, it is fairly wild. We guess...


Holy Moly. #YOUTHOUTNOW I feel sorry for the girl in the middle. @djcharlesy

A good time had by all clearly.

But come on - all this online reaction is a bit much isnt it? Maybe that kind of pit is impressive for a pop gig but these kids have clearly never been anywhere near a System Of A Down festival headline slot. 



Really guys? You call that a mosh pit? No, no, no, no, no...

THIS is a mosh pit!


And THIS is a mosh pit!


Oh, and THIS is DEFINITELY a mosh pit!!!

Nice work Ollie! 

So Tinie, while we get that the level of bouncing you saw in Norway is somewhat rare for your kind of show, next time we want to get stuck in the middle of a circle pit, we'll head straight to Donnington!

Gotta make sure we carry some kleenex for that nose though. Just in case.
