The organizers behind both Coachella and Lollapalooza have decided to ban selfie sticks from their music festival this summer. Selfie sticks have become an extremely popular item for people to bring along with them to many different events, but have come under fire for being both 'obnoxious' and potentially unsafe.
Coachella has even gone so far as creating their own word for them, labeling them in a category called "narsisstics" on a list of prohibited items.

What do you guys think? Do you think people should be able to bring their selfie sticks to such big events?

@candyland1986 The first time I saw them in real life, I was at a concert, and this one guy wouldn't get his selfie stick out of my face! I wanted to take pictures too. :(
I've seen the selfie stick in media, never in person. No one I know has one. I will never get one. I put it up there with the fanny pack. lol
@marshalledgar Right? It's a little tacky. Fun for when you're with your friends, I guess, but bringing them out wherever you go seems like a little much.
Yes they should be banned. For safety and for the experience everyone wnats to have. Even phones sticking up can be obnoxious.
@greggr Yeah, for as much money as going to a festival costs these people, ALL festival goers should be able to have a nice experience without any real visual obstructions.
