That Selfie Stick You Were Going To Use This Festival Season? Leave It At Home…

Both Coachella and Lollapalooza have banned selfie sticks.

It’s a universally acknowledged truth that selfie sticks are the epitome of everything that is wrong with society today. And now it looks like they’re to be shunned from festival season.

Lolapalooza in Chicago has followed suit, listing ‘GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks and monopods’ under its prohibited items list.
