8 Obnoxious People to Avoid at I-Fest

4. The Aussie Accent-Fakers
Yes, the theme is Australia, but really, there are only so many times one can pretend to think "throw another shrimp on the barbie" is cute before it becomes a major source of I-Fest contention.
We don't want to risk someone losing an eye this year over some wickedly awful rendition of an Australian accent, so just avoid anyone dressed like Mick Dundee -- or making gestures of flipping shrimp -- and you'll probably be okay.
3. The Fun-Suck

They're at every festival ever, those fun-sucks, and they should be avoided at every festival, even I-Fest, for obvious reasons. Well, unless you're going to I-Fest to be miserable and/or practice your resting bitch face, that is. If you want to have fun, these folks are not the one. Not the one at all.
2. Anyone Dragging Lawn Chairs
Lawn chairs are so freakin' practical. The folks who drag them around, especially at festivals with music, are also practical. They're also often quite proper, and that's no fun. If you wanna do the festival thing right, you've got to sit in the dirt like a normal person.
So if you make the mistake of hangin' out by a bunch of people sitting around in their lawn chairs at I-Fest, there's a good chance you'll hear "Down in front!!" about a thousand times because, well, dancing and all.
Planning for things like I-Fest is so overrated.
1. The Misplaced Partiers
Come on, guys. It's I-Fest, not Coachella, and yes, there may be tons of alcohol for sale, and probably some weed if you hit the right stage at the right time (hint: reggae anything), but this is not Spring Break '07, fools! Peeing your pants and screaming "WhoooooOOOOOOOooooooooo!" is only entertaining to you, and perhaps security, so stop it.
Go change into your grown-up party panties and pull yourself together before you come back near us at I-Fest. The entire festival will thank you. But until that happens, we'll be doing our best to avoid you cause it is indeed at that level.
