You can't bring a selfie stick to Coachella or Lollapalooza

To be fair, narcissists are also banned

If you're going to a music festival this summer, it might be difficult to fit your group's flower crowns into a single selfie. Coachella and Lollapalooza have officially banned selfie sticks. Lollapalooza also bans "narsisstics," which is either a typo or a bad pun.

This is probably because selfie sticks are annoying. You know there are people who will hoist them into the air in the middle of a set, blind to the fact that the people behind them are trying to watch DJ Snake or whatever. This is why umbrellas are the worst thing about outdoor shows. It's just rain you guys! Thankfully, umbrellas are also banned.

There you have it: no selfie sticks, just mud and bass drops. Sorry Sam Smith fans — for now, your arms will have to do.
