​Selfie sticks are banned at Coachella and Lollapalooza

If you're heading to either music festival this year, you can leave that selfie stick behind. Both April's Coachella and Lollapalooza in July have added the rods to their prohibited item lists. At Lollapalooza, the rules stipulate no "GoPro attachments like sticks, selfie sticks & monopods." Coachella said that "Selfie sticks / narsisstics" won't be allowed in, showing a healthy lack of self(ie)-awareness... and spelling skill.

As NME notes, the telescopic sticks have already been banned at multiple music venues, which can now add to the no-selfie stick list of major museums and Premier League football stadiums. The ban should help the non-stick carrying public enjoy public events and spaces a little more. The blowback has started, but it's probably not going to stop the selfie... or the sale of associated peripherals.
