Coachella and Lollapalooza bans selfie sticks

Do normal people actually use these?

If you do and were planning to bring a selfie stick to Coachella or Lollapalooza this year, you can’t. They have been included on both of their lists of banned items on their websites.

Lollapalooza classed the selfie stick as a GoPro attachment, while Coachella, simply says “No selfie sticks / Narcissistics.” They have done this in an effort to stop the unauthorized recording of performances over people’s heads, as well as because they’re just really annoying to others. Fair enough.

We can only assume (and hope) that many other festivals throughout the year will share the same ban.

Sorry kids, you’ll have to leave your toys at home and just enjoy the music.
