So once again, I went down to Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall towhead is still the most beautiful setting for any festival I know of.
So, right now I am meant to be leaving the stage after shooting Catfish & The Bottlemen from the side of it. Unfortunately due to Hurricane Bertha hitting Watergate Bay this morning, I am instead sitting here writing this blog post.
Whilst the weather has taken away day 3, the first two days of Boardmasters were amazing! Click HERE for all the pics from Boardmasters for you to enjoy while you journey home. See you all next year.
I spent this last weekend battling heat exhaustion and my inability to navigate my way anywhere, During the baking hot weekend I managed to get lost frequently and walk about 2 miles longer than I needed to when going between Devonshire Green and The Leadmill. On the plus side everyone was friendly and helped me with my directional plight.
It felt like the whole city came out for the festival, it was a beautiful weekend for sunbathing and chilling with a cold beer, it was not so good for lugging camera gear between venues when the weather was reaching for 30 degrees. This heat made being inside the Corporation almost unbearable. Everyone and everything was sweating, the floor was wet and the ceiling dripping. The crowds didn't care though and no matter what the venue, the crowds were huge and everyone was in the mood to have a good time.
The only thing that put a damper on the weekend for some was the queues that formed for several of the venues later in the day, leaving many on the pavement while the headline acts played at The Leadmill.
It was the first time i have shot Tramlines and strangely, although the venues were spread across the city it didn't feel disconnected. I am looking forward to Tramlines 2015, I just hope the weather is a little cooler next year.
