Josh Hutcherson shows Conan O'Brien the real way to do music festivals

Posted on


Based on nothing but anecdotal evidence, music festivals attract a youthful crowd, one that would likely recognize Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson. Appearing on Conan, the actor regaled Conan O’Brien on how he managed to have a good time and avoid being hounded.

“Well there’s two ways,” Hutcherson says. “One if you dress like a Mexican drug cartel, which is bandana, sunglasses, and hat. You feel really creepy, but they don’t recognize you.” Seems as good a way as any to live out your festival-going weekend in a small Tennessee town.

His second strategy is far simpler: find the druggies who are unaware of their environment. That works too. Watch the clip below, and catch his whole appearance Thursday night at 11 p.m. ET on TBS.
