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.
