We have long been concerned about the use of security services at UK festivals, most provided by companies who don't seem to understand that they are dealing with paying cusomers.
Many seem to think that everyone who attends a festival is scum and should be treated as a criminal with even the most inocuous contact turning into a full scale confrontation.
This weekend security at Beach Break Live takes the biscuit - threatening, unreasonable, unpleasant, aggressive and worse - I'm sure there will be a lot more to say about this particular company.
The question is - why do security behave in this manner? perhaps more importantly - why do festival organisers let them get away with it?
