I didn't make single photo or video the whole night - best decision ever. Spent three hours in druged-like trance. Wouldn't happen if I had to fiddle with shooting settings and such.

Also, you can never underestimate human stupidity and lack of education, which with security personnel come in abundance. Apologies to honorable exceptions.

The girls were showing them the cameras...there wasn't any need for the rudeness and agression they were shown. The board outside said these type of cameras WERE allowed. You don't want to take pics, fine i understand this. Some people do want pics as memories.

The email they sent round said what cameras would be allowed as well as the signs outside. If none are allowed then they should say that.
It wasn't a risk, why shouldn't people be allowed to take photos of their favourite band in an incredible venue?

The ‘rules’ on cameras were clearly posted in eyesight of venue security both in Croatian and English. When I was refused entry Foo security told them it was fine but the venue security chick STILL refused me entry and was unnecessary rude.

I take photos because I like the memories and also to share with people who were not at the show. And no I do not spend all night holding my camera up - I just take a few shots here and there and rock out the rest of the time. It’s my thing that I like to do but each to their own.

It was an awesome 2 nights and I enjoyed every minute of them.

My point: is the distinction in appearance between SLRs and compact cameras in this day and age really that clear? I have very compact Sony camera at home that has optional detachable lens available for order. So it's compact - with potentially detachable lens. Should they allow me to take it in or not?

This vagueness is the "risk" I'm talking about. Wanna take pictures and be sure to get in without hassle because security probably don't know first thing about photography and cameras, use the phone. They were clearly mentioned as allowed and it was pretty damn sure nobody could have molested us about it.

If there was aggression and rudeness, they probably weren't necessary. Or even if the person with "suspicious" device acted as irritating, privileged asshole (not saying that anyone did, speaking in general), they should have been more professional for sure and risen above it.

Again, the girls showed security the cameras and that they were the type that were allowed in. They pointed out the signs.They searched bags, pockets were emptied out so no one could sneak in a lens if they wanted to.They still wanted to refuse entry after seeing it was the right type of camera. They were being arsy because they wanted to be. That was clear. Please don't come on here with a thinly veiled dig either. We know to be polite to security, we are not priviledged arseholes. We don't think we are better than other fans. We appreciate every single thing the band do for us.

Edited my post to "speaking in general". I realize it might have sounded like I was implying anybody in particular deserved such uncivilized treatment.

Please don't assume that I watch my shows through a camera or a phone. I just like to take a few nice pictures of the bands I like and people I love.

My beer cup is going to be my new G&T cup. Quadruple gin will fit in there.

I've also got The Cure booked the night before and they have a great support of Mogwai, The Twilight Sad, and The Joy Formidable. Also have Madness the day after the Foos in Edinburgh so will need a break to rest after that!

Does anybody know will there be professionally recorded film from Pula? I mean, I saw something like TV cameras (at least two of them, one down the stage, one up on the tribines), but I don't know what that was. There were also drones, but there are always drones

The ambient of the arena was certainly something special, it would be worthy to be able to re-live that experience accompanied by professionally recorded sound (like from Glastonberry) and production. There are already lots of phone recorded movies on youtube, but it's not what I mean.

We'd said the same thing especially as they've had no live dvd since Wembley.
