TomorrowWorld Bans CamelBaks, Then Unbans Them Following Fan Uprising

Electric Zoo made headlines awhile back following their controversial ban of CamelBaks, provoking the ire of dance music fans and DJs alike following a year where dehydration became an issue at festivals worldwide. The reasoning falls under the idea of depriving concertgoers a method of sneaking drugs in through the gates, but in many ways endangers the patrons festivals purport to be protecting. Seemingly following in Electric Zoo’s footsteps, TomorrowWorld’s most recent list of banned items employed a similar policy:

This was of course followed swiftly by fan outrage, especially given the fact that TomorrowWorld takes place in a swamp in the Coastal South. Petitions were made, and floods of emails were sent to ID&T (the company sponsoring the event here in the States). It didn’t take long for the uproar to fall on the ears of the higher-ups behind the festival, as fans who sent out protests are currently receiving the following response:

It’s always refreshing to see a company listen to their fans following a controversy, and in the end see the reasoning behind allowing festival-goers the means to hydrate themselves in a hot and sweaty environment. We can only hope that Electric Zoo follows suit and sees the logic behind granting its patrons these same means. Keep checking back in for more updates as the story develops, and stay safe out there everyone!
