What would it make of a bunch of football fans walking up the street to the match chanting?

Or a street carnival?

How about a hard thrash metal concert or a rave with arms flailing or punks or just strictly come dancing with contestants being flung around with an audience clapping?

Sounds great in the context they've explained, but I doubt it'll work in the real world where peaceful activities can look very much like violence when the context is taken away.
