Gate crashing, gatecrashing or party crashing is the act of attending an invitation-only event when not invited. The person doing the gate crashing is known as a gate crasher.
Reasons for gate crashing include avoiding entry fees, gaining access to free food and beverages (often alcoholic), gaining access to a party that they wanted to be invited to but weren't, taking pictures of famous people (see paparazzi), having pictures taken with famous people, and more serious crimes like stalking, kidnapping, murder, theft, fraud, and causing general disruptions.
Various techniques that involve blending in with the crowd can be used to gain access to some events. Various measures can be taken to prevent gate crashers from gaining access such as collecting invitations at the door and employing staff to identify potential uninvited guests, but such measures can still be thwarted by a skilled gate crasher.
