Recently, there have been many stories of musicians shunning photography and also telling fans to keep their smartphones in their pocket and relish the show. Most lately, Prince’s purple rules even had guards at The City Winery in New York City taking people’s cell phones in mid-air and throwing people out.
Unsound music event is taking a big scale approach. The organizers of the festival have stopped filming and photography throughout the whole festival. They have asked the festival attendees to do the enforcing job.
Unsound is an electronic music event which takes place every year in Kraków in Poland. The festival this year will start from 13th October and go on till 20th October. Photography has been banned keeping in mind the “interference” theme this year. Even the press is not allowed to take photographs.
In a statement, Unsound Artistic Director Mat Schulz told that their target is to encourage their audience to focus on being in the moment, and not distract others out of that moment. They want to question the automatic tendency to place videos and photos of concerts online.
He added that the ban would not be checked by security. They would call it a community action and they would ask concert goers who see people taking a snap next to them ask them not to do t hat politely.
All these suggestions does not mean photography would be absent from the music event. The organizers stated that official photographers would document the music festival efficiently with their unique nature.
