Ministers and Presidents, Celestina Warbeck, controversial American wizarding band The Bent-Winged Snitches — all have caused flurries of excitement, with crowd members scrambling for autographs and even casting Bridging Charms to reach the VIP boxes over the heads of the crowd.

-- Rita Skeeter, Daily Prophet (Pm)

According to Rita Skeeter, excited crowd members during Quidditch World Cup matches have in the past used Bridging Charms to create walkways over the other spectators to reach celebrities in the VIP boxes (Pm).

When Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood and other members of Dumbledore's Army reunited at the Quidditch World Cup in 2014, Skeeter wrote that the crowd stampeded and the crowd rushed to the area, but she didn't say whether Bridging Charms were actually used on that day. Perhaps they were thwarted by the Security Warlocks and "heavy charms" (Pm).
