Recent attacks on music events in Europe and beyond

Following the attack on the Manchester Arena, we look back at other recent acts of terror on concerts, clubs and festivals in Europe and beyond. Concerts and clubs have increasingly become targets of terror attacks.

Ariane Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena had just come to an end on Monday evening at around 10:30pm local time when the explosion in the foyer occurred. Concerts, night clubs and festivals have proven targets of choice for acts of terror, as they draw hundreds or thousands of people to one concentrated location. As the summer festival season approaches, concerns are likely to rise as security measures are tightened.
