Ninnie Engberg at Stockholm Globe Arenas said to public service radio station SR that they know that there were not more people on the stand than permitted. They had special tickets for each section and guards at the entrances making sure people went to the correct stand.

It was a sub-contractor that had built the stand but according to Engberg it is the organizer of the concert, in this case SPG live, that is responsible for the security.
