Selfie Sticks Banned at Coachella, Lollapalooza, now NXNE

Sorry friend, you're going to have to do it the 'old-fashioned' way

Whether you love or loathe the selfie stick, after two of the biggest music festivals in North America recently officially banned their use, and now one of Toronto’s biggest festivals followed suit. Now Coachella, Lollapalooza and NXNE have deemed the most vain of all cell phone accessories off limits.

As reported on Billboard.com and Brooklyn Vegan, the festivals’ respective websites have classified the device as “prohibited”.

Yesterday, NXNE jumped on board and tweeted:

Raina got the festival’s music programmer Evan Dubinsky on the phone ask him why they’ve banned selfie sticks… and what will happen if you’re caught using one, and trust us, you don’t want to be caught using one.
