So recently with Childish Gambino’s performance at Coachella he requested people don’t film with their phones to just enjoy the music. Do you agree with this? On the one hand I think no people pay and want to create memories, but on the other I think you can’t fully enjoy the moment, like I see some people with a spam of recordings/pictures on Snapchat and Instagram. Please discuss.

Its pathetic. I mean why would you waste all that time uploading an hour worth of snapchat/insta stories when you can post one pic of the event and then enjoy the rest of it by watching it.

The social media generation of today feeds off views and likes to feed their overinflated egos. Whenever I see someones story at a concert I mute their stories. Im not wasting my data on that.

You make a good point, social media has ruined life’s experiences-the constant need people have to document everything to further validate themselves. There are also a lot more “social media influencers” make of that what you will.

I think a few videos and photos are fine as I would want to capture the memory however filming the whole thing is just stupid and removes the whole 'live' experience if you're watching it through a screen.

Personally I think it’s a much better experience not to film it. A few photos & a couple of short video clips are fine, but then just enjoy it.

However, when your not very tall like me, sometimes it’s the only way you can see what’s happening on stage 😂

This is why you get the accessible seating. Guaranteed view, and a seat.

Pisses me off. People are not experiencing it; just focussing on collecting daft video. Blocking about 5 people's view of the concert as they do it.

nothing wrong with a little bit of it but filming the whole thing just seems rather pointless as you're not experiencing the live music.
was watching billie's coachella performance and the amount of people that were filming on their phones was horrendous, not to be a technophobe or anything. even in the interactive parts they still held their phones- just don't understand why they can't put their phone down for a damn minute. that being said, it's coachella and to me, people go there to show off that they can be there and not to enjoy the music.

i went to my first concert in march- t'was billie eilish and i perhaps recorded no more than 2 minutes of the concert and 6/7 photos. don't regret it all, i really enjoyed being in the moment and the music, and i look back at the videos fondly.

i think some concerts are nice to experience standing though- my neck killed when looking up to see the singer at the concert i went to at some points but i don't regret it, there's a nice atmosphere in standing sometimes.

I only go seated if it's someone I absolutely want to see and can't get standing. Seated is so crap.

Does happiness happen in real time any more? Or is it the day after when posting the videos/pictures taken on Instagram?

I mean, I can't stand for a concert. Not least because I'm liable to fall or have my stick knocked about. Hence the "accessible" seating bit. Although I did have to tell one venue that a seat behind a pillar wasn't acceptable.

oh whoops, i thought you meant everyone should get accessible seating because there's a criteria or something for that right?
yeah sitting behind a pillar doesn't sound ideal:lol:

You need to be unable to stand for the duration. Most venues also give me a second ticket for a carer for nothing.
