Imagine if your parents still had to accompany you to a concert. It’s happening in NYC.

This year was filled with a bunch of concerts and festivals that didn’t going according to plan. That includes New York’s Governors Ball, which was something of a disaster.

When the weather turned bad, thousands of people had to be evacuated in a hurry. And because the exit routes seemed inadequate, people resorted to jumping fences and barricades. Everything ended up being canceled.

But that wasn’t the only issue. Many complained that the whole thing was “overun by teens” who disrupted the entire vibe for everyone.

The organizers of Governors Ball plan to hold another event in 2020 but with some really strict attendance rules. Going forward, all attendees under the age of 18 need to go with an adult over 21. And each adult can be bring in no more than two teens each.

I’m sure this is going to go over well. Then again, I see the point, right?
