15 Annoying Things Indians Do At EDM Festivals

Generally, the level of excitement before attending your favorite artist’s gig is altitudinous. You conceptualize yourself having an insane time, grooving to the tunes being played by the headliner and relishing each and every beat of sound coming your way. However, sometimes, there are a few klutzy and lumbering moments which crop up at a relatively untimely phase during the course of your delectation. Here in this article, we have made an effort to congregate such awkward, annoying yet incredibly hilarious moments and things we experience while attending an EDM concert!

#1 Some people jumping expeditiously way before the actual ‘drop’.

As improbable as it may sound, this actually happens sometimes. And trust us, it’s absolutely hilarious!


#2 Aggravating ‘Selfie Stick’ interventions.

Envisage yourself having a candid chat with a friend about how awesome the gig is and discussing the quality of music on display and suddenly a foolish person interrupts your discussion with a ‘Selfie’ intervention. Need we say more?
