i went to evolve this weekend because some of my favourite bands were playing. i was shocked at the lack of respect other festival goers had in regards to what they chose to bring along with them. Inappropriate were...
1) Kites. kites are dangerous in a crowd of people. kites belong in open fields away from people who are afraid of getting nailed in the head by one. (i saw it happen to an innocent by stander and it was not pretty)
2) balloons/ beach balls. i got hit 6 times during Battles set! please fuck off, it was distracting.
3) glowsticks. glowsticks actually wouldn't be so bad if you weren't throwing them around! they were all over the ground and i got hit in the head by one on saturday night.
4) Blinking LED light Swords. yeah you look cool with a sword, duh, actual swords are bitchin. but people have seizures you know. i even kindly asked one guy to just hold his down a bit so it woudn't be right in my face and he was a total asshole about it. he pissed me off, and i was on freaking happy pills at the time!
5)barefeet. it rained at evolve this year. the site was a pit of mud. reasonable people wore boots or shoes. assholes wore barefeet.
please think twice next year! the props and toys you bring to festivals are dangerous, bad for the environment and just straight up innappropriate.
