selfie stick music festival


Festival City is OK with Selfie Sticks



Summer is creeping up around the corner and I don’t know about you but damn, I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy what the YEG has to offer!


Now, a couple of major music festivals like Lollapalooza in Chicago and Coachella in California have banned the selfie stick, or as one called it the “narcisstick”. There are a few concerns that the stick might be used as a weapon but much more likely it’s just annoying and bothersome to some people


A couple of Edmonton’s festivals have been asked by METRO whether or not they’d be interested in banning the selfie stick. The Edmonton Folk Festival says it doesn’t have any plans to ban the stick. They tell METRO that their festival goers don’t really use the stick and that they don’t really see a need for the ban.


SONiC BOOM, one of Edmonton’s biggest outdoor music festivals of the year, batted the ban around as well.


I can understand where the idea comes from. A lot of people don’t seem to really like this selfie stick – but why! I have picked one up – I’m not ashamed – and I swear it takes some of the best photos ever!
