Raise your hand if you've never used your phone to take a picture or make a video at a live show. Well you're in the minority, as most have done it at some point in our lives.
Some of us remember the days when going to a gig meant that we'd live the experience in the moment. Unless you were a photographer, you'd not be allowed in with a camera, so all you could do was to enjoy the show to its fullest.
It's easy to let nostalgic thoughts take over when we're constantly surrounded by smartphones at a show, but what if the freedom of using our phones was taken away from us?
Many artists have grown tired of asking their audiences to stop using their phones, as this approach doesn't seem to work, so some of them have come up with different solutions.
Browse through the gallery and get to know the artists and other performers who are banning phones from their shows and how they're doing it.
