Naturally, as the accessories for self-photography are getting more famous, so are people's concerns with going out in a public setting, like a show, exhibition, or sightseeing, and being surrounded by selfie lovers waving sticks around. Well, naturally, show execs have picked up on the trend and its dangers, as we've so far seen bans for the accessories in museums and football stadiums.
Today, add famed music festivals Coachella and Lollapalooza to the list of places you can't bear your phone holding baton at. Both venues have posted up their rules that attendees need to adhere to, and both specifically point out that the selfiesaber is a no-no on festival grounds.
Lollapalooza makes sure to mention the restriction at least three times on its website:
- Cameras – only non-professional photo and video cameras will be allowed, and must be without equipment attachments such as selfie sticks, tripods and monopods.
- Photo attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods.
- GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods.
Coachella is less vocal, at least in quantity, as in its “Rules” page, we can find the line
- NO SELFIE STICKS / NARSISSTICS
So, there you go, folks. The auto-memorabilia rod has to stay home if you are going at any of these festivals and we wouldn't be surprised if the others follow that example.
