Chicago Open Air 2019, Seat Geek Stadium – 18-19.05.2019

Chicago Open Air lit up Seat Geek Stadium! Saturday morning I woke up with excitement for a weekend that I had been anxiously awaiting for months.

That anticipation grew… Keep Reading

Graveyard, Copenhell 2018

A time machine just landed on the old shipyard Copenhell and out came 4 Swedish guys, looking like something taken from the late 60´s They really sound and look like they just stepped out of a time machine. The hippie styling and the mustaches were fancy. But is it good enough for the metal packed Copenhell 2018? Or will it just be a misplaced kick in the balls? The authenticity… Keep Reading

REVIEW: Isle of White Festival, 2018 – The Golden Anniversary!!

Unprecedented hot weather meant that Isle of Wight truly turned Golden in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Without a Glastonbury this year #IOW50 was ‘the’ event to be at in 2018 and could seriously make Glasto returners think again next year. I love that moment in the build-up to the Isle of Wight festival when you get on the ferry and leave the mainland behind, it feels like you are… Keep Reading

Camden Rocks Kicks Arse

Saturday: Camden Rocks is London’s premier rock festival in London’s premier rock location. On Friday I photographed Blossoms, a band so vanilla that prolonged exposure carries risk of poisoning. Quite why yesterday’s All Points East Festival audience of young people were going crazy over a band whose most exciting crowd interaction was: “Hello, we’re Blossoms from Stockport” was, and is, beyond me. Today however, I’m at Camden Rocks – over… Keep Reading

Northern Invasion Festival, Somerset Wisconsin

After the dust settles, all we are left with is our memories. It’s been almost two weeks since Northern Invasion closed out its 4th year. It was my first year in attendance and it has taken me awhile to really formulate into words what was such a great experience. I went into this weekend with only knowing a handful of the artists. I checked out everyone ahead of time and… Keep Reading
