What is Music Festival Etiquette and why is It Important?
Those who have only read about music festivals, it can be an escape dream for them but for those who have actually attended music festivals many numbers of times, they know that music festival can turn nice places into wastelands. No matter how many dustbins are kept, the trash is always left on the ground, no matter how many nice people you mingle with, there are always negative people around because when you get thousands of people together, things get out of hand and it becomes inevitable.

Even if it gets super loud, you can do a friendly tap on the shoulder so that you can showcase your gesture to pass.
