What is a glow stick war?
A glow stick war is a live music phenomenon. Typically during a peak or a jam, audience members will begin to throw hundreds or thousands of glow sticks into the air to the rhythm of the music. As hundreds of glow sticks fall to the ground, hundreds more are picked up and tossed, creating a perpetual flow of glow. A glow stick war is the crowd coming together to share the show in a visual and spectacular way.
What are Show Sticks?
Show Sticks are a new brand of glow sticks that have been designed by and for concert fans to use safely at shows. Thick, heavy glow sticks are dangerous to use for glow stick wars. Show Sticks are slim, lightweight, 8” glow sticks that glide through the air creating an amazing effect without the danger of thick glow rods. Show Sticks are sold in recyclable tubes of 100, and a portion of every sale is donated to The Mockingbird Foundation.
