Coachella and Lollapalooza Ban Selfie Sticks

Like many museums, arenas and other public venues around the world, US music festivals Coachella and Lollapalooza have both banned selfie sticks from their premises. Lollapalooza’s website states that no “GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks and monopods” are allowed, while Coachella’s website echoes the sentiment by stating “selfie sticks / narcissists” are banned from the audience. Both concerts cite health and safety reasons for excluding the popular monopods from their festivities.
