    Default Weekend 2 Major Lazer "Incident"

    First off, I am not new to concerts. I've been to hundreds of GA shows, including 7 Coachellas. I expect to get bumped, pushed, shoved, and jostled a bit. I am also not an aggressive person; I don't have a lot of buttons, and you have to push them repeatedly to get a response from me. Lastly, have never confronted someone at a concert...ever.

    At weekend 2's Major Lazer set, there were a group of guys behind me and my wife, and one dude was beyond uncontrollable. Not only did her have his back to the stage the whole time (which is an annoyance in itself), but he had a backpack on which meant that every time he backed into us, his backpack drilled into the back of our heads. After he slammed into my wife about 12 times, I switched places with her, where he continued his one-person mosh pit. After hitting me about 5 times in the back of my head with his goddamn backpack, I guess I snapped. I grabbed him, got in his face, and said, "if you touch me one more time, I will fucking kill you". His buddy had to step in and tell me that everything was cool. Two things stopped me from breaking his jaw. First, as soon as I got in his face, I could tell he was gone. And second, his buddy, although trembling, really diffused me well.

    Tom may argue that it has something to do with the sets I chose to listen to. Unfortunately, I would not be in a position to argue with him. I am growing increasingly intolerant of the people that like the same music that I do.

    Basically, I apologize to anyone who witnessed the scene I created, but he never bothered anyone else after that, so...you're welcome.

    Maybe u should have just told him to calm the fuck down before telling him that you were going to kill him. Threatening someone's life is way more appalling concert behavior than anything that d-bag did to you

    I'm not posting to get support for my behavior. I clearly snapped, and I apologize for that.

    Point taken homie.

    How did his backpack keep hitting you guys in the head? Were you sitting down or are you and your wife incredibly short? I've seen a major lazer crowd before and I wouldn't recommend sitting down during one of their shows

    I was really expecting this to be something super epic, like the "beaten up at disclosure" thread.

    That was a good read.

    This is less exciting, and more self-deprecating.

    There is nothing wrong with telling someone you'll kill them. You should've done it sooner though.

    I can't imagine putting up with somebody who wasn't even facing the stage smacking my girlfriend or me more than like three times before telling them to get the fuck away from me.

    In the past, I have either put up with it, or just moved to another area. There was just something different about this situation. I'm not proud that I scared him and everyone he was with, in addition to making the people around me uncomfortable.

    I don't understand why you feel like you need to apologize for what you did.

    Let me rephrase that: quit being a fucking pussy. Somebody was behaving badly, you got up in their ass, and in the end nothing bad happened. Relax and don't try so hard to be a fucking pacifist.

    I mean, I'm not particularly for threatening to kill someone in the middle of a concert (mostly because when I say it in my girlish high pitched voice I only get laughs), but sometimes people need something like this to happen to stop for a second and realize that they are a fucking asshole. Seriously, fuck the people who "don't get bothered by people being douchebags around them and are just able to tune them out and enjoy the show." Self-conscientiousness at concerts needs to be more enforced.

    It would be if "I'll kill you" wasn't a phrase used almost exclusively by totally pussies.

    Possibly. I'm 7 years older than I was at my first Coachella...maybe I'm also getting crotchety.

    Sounds like you just got irked just enough times to set you off.

    For the next time..
    From the responses, just tell him kindly-angrily to calm the fuck down - you are hitting my wife! Chances are the person will beg for forgiveness. If not, then expect the douche to be outgunned by everyone around him, including your irate self.

    That's basically what I learned from that experience. I agree with Tom...there were a lot of assholes there, but I didn't have to be one of them.

    This was the first year I felt a little old. I'm 38 and this was my 9th Coachella but I almost lost it during Purity Ring for something similar. The guy behind my wife and I had no concept of personal space and kept bumping into both of us repeatedly. I had to restrain myself not to turn around and yell at him. He eventually moved somewhere else, but I think he was a little gone too.

    It is not everyone else's inalienable right to act however they want at a concert just because I could move, Zach.

    and that's totally me....It takes A LOT to bug me at a show. I think the last time i got pissed at someone acting ridiculous at a concert was at Portishead. When this couple were filming the show using like a 7 foot pvc piping and a camera.They were a huge distraction from the show and Elecktek(sp) threw a bottle from where he was and hit the couple.I moved to the side of them before hand so they didn't block my view and was laughing hysterical while watching the couple get heckle by crowd behind them.
