FILE - In this Jan. 23, 2015 file photo, tourists use a 'selfie stick' in London. You can bring your beach towels and floral headbands, but forget that selfie stick if you’re going to the Coachella or Lollapalooza music festivals. The sticks are banned this year at the events in Indio, Calif., and Chicago. Coachella dismissed them as “narsisstics” on a list of prohibited items. Selfie sticks have become a popular but polemical photo-taking tool: Avid picture takers like perching their cellphones on the lengthening devices to snap their own shots in front of monuments and sunsets, but critics dismiss them as obnoxious and potentially dangerous to others. Museums in the U.S. and Europe, including the Palace of Versailles outside Paris and Britain’s National Gallery in London, have banned them. (AP Photo/PA, John Stillwell) UNITED KINGDOM OUT
