I started my Music Island @ Sea Turtle Island project because at that time
most great musical projects were being held in commercial spaces where the
landowners did not plan well for events or care enough to be around to
police the event.  Sims were crashing because capacities were not set at
realistic levels, panicked newbies would run about screaming for help on
tuning in music, indiscriminate use of many high rez textures
lagged performers and audience alike, and griefers were running amok without
anyone empowered to curtail their activities.

Yes, realistically, I think it is the responsibility of the presenter of the
event (land owner or estate manager) to control the behaviour of the
audience.  Just like in my RL concert hall, the ushers will confiscate
cameras, shush talkers, and if necessary security will be called to escort
troublemakers out.
