'marsh pit' for 'mosh pit'

A mosh pit is an area in front of a cancert stage where audience members crowd together and dance aggressively (mosh). From a distance, it looks like a swamp (or marsh) of bodies. Examples:

Well, look on the bright side – no neck ache from all the head banging and no painful legs from all that jumping in the marsh pit .

I was fortunate enough to hear it live when the Chilli was playing in Big Day Out even I got really wasted and bruised up in the Marsh Pit .
