    Default Main stage guard rail gone?

    From the map it looks like the guard rail doesn't create a giant cross, can someone confirm or deny this?

    Was it on the other maps? I highly doubt they would not have the rails

    It wasn't on the maps for previous years, yet there was always a guard rail.

    Yes, but all the other threads about maps aren't gone.

    why would the guard rail be on the map in the first place? It's not an art installation or a thing to check out. Most concerts have the guard rail to help with crowd control and that's it. it will probably be there. .

    The Cross design last year was only due to the Gorillaz needing that open space in the middle for the screens.

    people acting like if guard rails aren't drawn on a cartoon map they must not be at the show. you're going to be surprised as hell when you bump into things that aren't on the map Magellan.

    they'd need a much higher resolution photo, and a much more detailed and intricate drawing. probably didn't want to spend the money on that talented of an artist. but, really, they could have added these in, and should have.

    The cross will be back this year. It keeps people from dying.

    The rail was very convenient for the Futureheads and their intro to their cover of "Hounds of Love." Hot damn, did that intro work.

    wow really? exactly what was going on on that cross? i avoided the rail... good thing sounds like.

    but yeah, it will be back, not sure about death. but it is a good safety measure, and come on guys when you have massive sets like this, the guard rails aren't really something of a cost concern. they decided to implant rfid chips in a million bracelets, think they can spare the expense again to rent a couple rails...

    the cross design allows security/emt/whoever to get throughout the crowd of mainstage without any interference. it was not just for last year
