Thread: Please enforce the no flags rule

  1. #1

    Default Please enforce the no flags rule

    This year seemed especially douchey for the number of people who blocked views of the stage by waving flags or oversized cardboard cutouts of celebrity faces. Also, at least three people apparently have to stand near the stage with a GoPro on a pole, getting the one decent shot you can get with a camera that has no zoom.

    during the replacements stinkbutt hurled a water bottle at the douchebag carrying the Steve Buscemi totem. It was a great moment in anti-flagism.

    Lots of LOLs with the abundance of the cardboard cutouts this year, but I do think the totem peak was 2013. Also, most of the flags I saw were hand held only (no pole), which doesn’t really annoy me.

    During Ty Segall I hit it with a role of TP. I actually said something to this guy early on Sunday about how he was blocking everyones view, his response was "Everyone loves Steve Buscemi", fuck that guy.

    I'm not on the aversion to flags bus. I like flags. I do not like people standing on the crowd separator things between GA & Backstage passes which block the views of literally everyone. Thank god security came through the crowd in Disclosure and made people get down.

    Agree with you 100% here. You get the rail, first you have to deal with the photogs, then you have to deal with whoever those idiots were.

    there was a huge drop in douche totems/flags weekend 2 last year. not sure if that's due to security enforcing the rules more or just the types of people that go weekend 1 instead of weekend 2.

    Yes, fuck all of the totems, pool noodles, glowing sticks, blow up plastic pool toy animals, surf boards, and everything else that you can raise above your head. Those should be confiscated at the gates, and if not at the gates, when security sees them in the crowd.

    Correction--we saw one group of people (Englishmen, it turns out) that were holding glow in the dark plastic gummy bears. These were pretty small and ok IMO.

    Some asshole was waving a stupid stick/pool toy thing right in front of us at Arcade Fire; almost hit me and the guy next to me a couple of times. He got tired of it and put it down, and as soon as he did, the guy and I stole it and pushed it back several rows in the crowd.
