Ultra Music Festival bans most rave gear including totems, backpacks, glow sticks, masks and more

Ultra Music Festival just got a lot less raver friendly. After coming under fire last year after a string of unfortunate incidents, the world’s pre-eminent dance music festival raised its age restriction to 18+ and has now instituted a long list of banned items that will send ravers reeling. Among the list of usual banned items, like drugs and deadly weapons, Ultra has banned backpacks, bags, and purses — but not Camelbaks. The list goes on to ban totems, facial masks, pacifiers, glowsticks, stuffed animals — all the usual accessories for a majority of UMF attendees. View the full list of banned items below and visit Ultra’s website for additional information.
