look up any word, like blumpkin:
A nice circle where you are allowed to hug anyone you want. Next time you go to a concert please run to the center of that circle, if you get there first you'll get the most hugs! Hug everyone, but most importantly have fun!

Ps. Ignore the other definitions of "moshpit" they just want to scare you away cause they want to get to the center first. Don't let them fool you!
Lead singer: MOSHPIT!

Everyone: *runs to the center*

Leader singer: looks like the chick in the white shirt got there first!

Everyone: aw!

Lead singer: everyone hug her!

Everyone: *hugs her*

Girl in white shirt: yay! Best day of my life!

at a rock/metal/emo... gig you will find mosh pits.

they kick ass! often have cages round the sides for injured or overly violent people. never go in if you can't stand up for your self, you'll lose a leg or something! also be prepared to lose stuff eg. shoes, mobile phone, glasses ... not from people nicking them, but moshing to hard haha
that guy broke his arm in the mosh pit

Open Pit: When about 10-25 people all open up a large area in the pit (despite how crowded it is) and dance/flail around for the amount of time the music has high energy.

This is about the only time one can punch, slam again, step on, and hit anyone in view and have the victims not mind / enjoy it... though expect to get punched and hit back a LOT.

Closed Pit: When everyone shoves toward the front of the stage, not caring if they can or can't breathe. Find a way to breathe, or you just wont be able to.
Mosher: I'm going to a hardcore show tonight

Non-Mosher: You're gonna get your ass kicked

After show with aggressive mosh pit

Mosher: -Comes back with completely bruised and bloody face/body-

Non-Mosher: You're an idiot

They most often occur at Punk or Metal concerts. A mosh pitt is when a group of 10 - 20 people run around in a circle at push and punch each other. They often pull in unwilling members of the crowd to join the "mosh"
Jeff: "Yo man, it was so great, I moshed so much at the Quo Vadis show!"
Phil: "Ya me to, it was crazy!"

A group of punk-rock listeners: jumping, punching, spinning, and throwing elbows as a form of expression. Performed by white, emo kids, with months of pent up rage, and the inability to actually dance
Hey, I guess Joey had to go to the hospital after he went in the mosh pit.

A place in a metal concert where people push/run into each other in a large circle.

Not to be confused with the "Windmill Freaks/Kung-Fu Wannabes" Who intentionally throw their arms around with the intention of giving someone a black eye.
Slayer Pits are the most brutal, because the shit that Hatebreed fans do are just wannabe riot acts.
