Red Hot Chili Peppers Not Down With Festival Rules

  • Attending a festival show in the New South Wales state of Australia has become more difficult after the government passed legislation aimed at preventing drug overdoses.
  • The law could hit organizers with significant fees for licensing, which has irked many in the industry.
  • At their show in Melbourne last week, the Red Hot Chili Peppers spoke out against the regulation, with Flea declaring, “That is the stupidest f***ing thing I have ever heard in my life! What could make a community stronger and better than everyone going out to see live music? Who the f**k came up with that idea?”
  • Frontman Anthony Kiedis wasn’t thrilled either, echoing his bassist’s sentiment, calling it, “some bullsh**t”.
  • What changes at festival shows have you noticed today versus a few years ago? Have they impacted your enjoyment?
