Ultra Music Festival Bans All The Things That Make Music Fesitvals Fun

By Gigi Engle

Ultra Music Festival, one of the most popular music events in the world, just became the fun police and its attendees are pissed.

The Miami, Florida festival has decided to do away with most rave gear, due to some unfortunate incidents that took place last year at Ultra 2014.

Forget your pacifiers and glow sticks, my friends, because this PG, now 18 and up music festival has officially become really tame.

The full list of banned items:

- No illegal or illicit substances, drugs or drug paraphernalia

- No weapons of any kind including, but not limited to, pocket knives or self defense sprays

- No flammable items or liquids including aerosols and fireworks

- No markers, pens or spray paint

- No backpacks, purses or bags allowed except bags made of clear plastic, clear vinyl or clear PVC not exceeding 13” x 17”

- No stuffed animals

- No facial masks

- No outside food or beverage including alcohol

- No bottles, cans, canteens, flasks or coolers

- No opened over the counter medication or eye drops

- No opened packs of cigarettes or tampons

- No pacifiers, glow sticks

- No balloons, balls, inflatable balls, frisbees or flying disks

- No umbrellas, chairs, blankets, sleeping bags or tents

- No bicycles, skateboards, scooters or personal motorized vehicles

- No animals except for service animals assisting an individual with a disability

- No large chains, chained wallets or spiked jewelry

- No laser pens, laser pointers or similar focused light devices

- No water guns, squirt guns, spray bottles or misters

- No musical instruments, noisemakers or air horns

- No whistles

- No professional cameras, flash cameras or video and audio recording equipment, or camera poles

- No poles, sticks, or “totems”

Tickets to the show are nearly $500, we can almost hear the collective cries from pseudo flow children from across the great 50 states.

Without a squirt gun, drugs, decorative masks and a camera to document it all, did it even really happen?
