vuvuzela is not drumming - tick
vuvuzela is not amplified electronically - tick
vuvuzela is not music - tick.

So they're saying if you bring a drum they'll tell you to beat it.
No, wait, they'll tell you not to beat it.
But then you'll be there with a drum... which is prohibited.

I'm so confused.

good luck finding someone to complain about a drum circle happening at the Folk Fest. I got my drum at the folk fest for my 21st Birthday. 1991. Where the fuck did that thing get to, i wonder.

If you give them money, they often misunderstand and play louder because they think you're a fan. Not an option. I had a bad experience this one time in Toronto involving drunken Ontario policemen.
