Thread: Hoop Ban?

  1. #1

    Default Hoop Ban?

    Anyone know why hoops were banned the second day at Coachella? Got mine in thankfully cus i knew an artist but I saw a bunch that were confiscated... I thought it was pretty ridiculous. I had loads of people tell me they loved watching me hoop, lots of people wanted to try it too. I thought it was supposed to be a
    music and ARTS festival?

    because your stupid fucking hula hoops get in the way. same reason there's no umbrellas or fucking flags or signs. keep that shit, and shoulder-perched-bitches, squarely away in the campground. I didn't pay to watch you act like a hippie and take up prime real estate in crowds

    Some people had a kindergarten parachute thing during the Vaccines. It was fucking awesome.

    the parachute, I strangely supported. I think that's well over the line from object-based nuisance into baller-ass group activity.

    Who gives a shit about your stupid hoola hoops??? Nobody wants you to hoola hoop while they are trying to listen to/watch good bands play.
    Coachella '10, '11, '12 (w2), '13 (w1), and hopefully every one after

    Wow you guys fucking suck. I don't mind when you all throw your frisbees around, or elbow people in the face, or trip over me like a drunken fool, or wear a bunch of glowing distracting stuff. Do what you want! its all part of going to a FESTIVAL. I don't care about umbrellas either, especially in the sun! Do what you do and have fun, I don't go hoop up in the front or anything I chill out where there is a WIDE OPEN SPACE. Fuckin stupid bros are ruining coachella. Don't hate on people having a good time, I don't hate on everyone else when they do annoying shit, I just want people to have fun.

    Also mine is collapsable so it doesn't get in the way any more than a backpack does.

    I'm beginning to think that security is instructed to let certain "banned" items in every so often, but not TOO many in. Enough to keep the festival interesting, but not enough that they're everywhere. There's no way to sneak a led umbrella/hoop past security, even with their half-assed searches. I saw enough of them this weekend that im pretty sure they were purposely let through.

    I agree. When I asked security they said they banned lightsabers and decorated staffs, but I saw people blatently taking those through security too.

    Yep, tons of rage sticks too. Were glowsticks "banned"? I can see wanting to limit flags and sticks, but they really add personality to the atmosphere, especially at night.

    Nah, those were fine. I love seeing stuff like crazy staffs and umbrellas, especially with lights, I think it adds to the festival, just like costumes do. I saw a dope sunflower umbrella that had led's in it. It's so much fun seeing the awesome stuff people make and bring in. I saw tons of led wire costumes that were hella cool!

    Frozen Pilgrim you are the epitome of an asshole and a class A douchebag! Who elected you and decided what a music festival is supposed to be?

    Hoopers hoop on the outside edges of a crowd because crowds of people walk right into hoops, so your beef with losing prime real estate is not real. You are full of shit. I don't know what your beef is. I think some hot sexy hooper rejected your ugly ass, and made you piss yourself in front of her. Either way, I know you are not getting any if you are trolling coachella message boards. Loser!


    Btw - Shiloh you rock!

    funny about the umbrellas...i got told that "everyone hates me" before Dre by some European because i told a couple people in front of me to put their fucking umbrellas down, which just so happened to be blocking damn near the whole stage. FUCK UMBRELLAS.

    We brang a hoop every night at dark....every hot girl loved it and it's like a chick magnet. I met a lot of gorgeous women and some of them were really good. Most were 24-40. Some taught lessons in HB.

    They make humping motions and smile and dance....where is the douchery in that?


    We do it outside the tents or in the do lab, but at sbtrkt we had a fat ass crowd of girls taking turns while everyone cheered and took pics....the ladies were going wild.

    Just because people say it is beautiful doesn't mean it actually is beautiful. People are sort of stupid, by and large.

    I actually don't mind hoopers, even though it's really a "look at me! look at me!" thing that I normally despise.
