To selfie or not to selfie? If you’re headed to a music festival this year, it’s likely not up for debate. Coachella has officially banned selfie sticks, while Lollapalooza similarly outlawed all GoPro-type attachments. This leads to my next question: Why?

Now I know what you’re thinking, selfie naysayers. But it’s really nothing personal. Selfie sticks have been a nuisance to festival-goers, as they often hinder the crowd’s view. Also? Users can take unauthorized recordings of shows, which is very much frowned upon. So this year, concert organizers decided to stick it to them.
