Attention Arcade Fire:
Every time I see footage of the music festivals at Reading or Glastonbury, I always think the same thing: what is with the massively huge flags? I like to picture the flag wavers actually trying to get through the front gate at the start of the festival hauling such a comically large banner. Do they plant them in the ground or actually hold on to them the entire time? It really just seems like a big hassle, but I say that as someone who hates bringing anything I don't need to outdoor fests. Every year I have an inner debate on whether to even bring sunscreen, weighing back and forth the slight inconvenience of a bulge in cargo shorts vs. a sure-fire blistering sunburn to my pale Irish face. It's usually a 50-50 proposition on whether I bring the sunscreen or not.
