As a way to help the rest of the public that do not carry around selfie sticks enjoy the events both Coachella and Lollapalooza have banned the devices. This comes on the heels of other music venues banning the devices as well as major museums and the Premier League football stadiums.
This move should hopefully make it a lot less annoying when watching your favorite acts at the festivals. Lollapalooza rules state that no “GoPro attachments like sticks, selfies sticks, and monopods” are allowed. From Coachella’s website it states that “selfie sticks / narsisstics” are not allowed in. For those that loathe the selfie sticks, they can only hope that this is the start of a broader adoption of selfie stick bans.
