Those who have taken m43 to festivals/concerts

I always liked the idea of getting some photos at a festival. Maybe not the artists performing since it would be hard to get close, but just of the atmosphere and surroundings. Thing is on most festival sites they have something like this:

Photographic equipment is permitted provided that it is for personal non-commercial use only

Some others say non professional cameras are allowed. My main concern here is that they’ll see a GH5 with a 35-100 attached as a professional camera. I’m not sure if they will decide it isn’t personal use if the camera looks to good. I suppose this is a time the smaller bodies would be more useful.

My question is to anyone who has done photography at festivals/concerts... Do you find you need permission if you take a bigger body camera in general? I’ll probably try to contact some event organisers and see if they can clarify if my camera would be ok before buying tickets anyway.
