A MAN who wore jeans instead of sparkly leggings to a festival was asked to leave, it has emerged.
Stephen Malley attended the Crazy Lazy Daze festival dressed as he usually would on an overcast weekend in August, but was told to go home by a man wearing a glittery poncho and a Native American headdress.
Malley, 31, said: “I arrived wearing clothes that I thought reasonably sensible for spending two days outdoors in the UK, like jeans, and a jumper in case it got nippy in the evening.
“But all the other men were wearing leggings with pictures of galaxies on and sequinned boleros, or unicorn horns and hot pink speedos.
“They all looked at me like I was some sort of bizarre freak of nature and said I’d have much more ‘festival fun’ if I rubbed a bit of glitter in my beard.
“I said I was just there for the music but they looked at me like I was somehow dangerous.”
Fellow festival attendee Tom Booker said: “If I saw a bloke wearing leggings down the pub I’d call him a big poof, but luckily I’ve got no sense of irony so I can really enjoy wearing them at festivals.”
