I'm really hoping at least a few members here attended because I have a few questions.
I attended the festival on Saturday and was completely shocked by the security in place.
I've had my car searched before going to other shows but, never as obtrusive as this experience.
I've never had to have my ID linked to a traceable wrist band.
And, I've never had to scan the wrist band to get in and out of the main stage area.
Also, there were armed police driving around in military like vehicles that I began to refer to as GI Joes.
Is this the new norm?
It was so surreal to me because I've attended this festivals in the past and they were very easy going and very chill.
I've been to tons of shows but, never experienced anything like this before. Not even a Phish show!
So, I'm just wondering.....is this what I should expect in the future? Is this the new norm?
