16 People Who Thought They Could Handle Music Festivals And Lost (Photos)

It's certainly possible to go to a musical festival and take in the performances while consuming the substance(s) of your choice responsibly and having a genuinely enjoyable time, and it's just as possible to experience the exact opposite.

If you're not prepared, the combination of heat, dancing and prohibited substances can often catch up to you quicker than expected, and it's important to have someone you can rely on to ensure you don't wander off and do something that makes people want to take your picture.

When that happens, you'll end up on the Internet and eventually on a website somewhere as an entry on a list of people who severely overestimated their ability to survive a music festival.

At least the last guy didn't have to get tasered to collapse onto the ground.

And he wasn't covered in lo mein.

Remember: You can't always stop things from going wrong, but you should always be prepared to make the best of the situation.
