Having gone to a Future Music Festival as a punter before I knew I was in for a pretty crazy ride when I got asked to photograph it. Although I was slightly terrified at the prospect of pouring rain, mud everywhere and people being crazy all day the line up was too good to refuse.
I walked into the gates and immediately (almost as if it was planned) I heard Sandstorm being played by Darude in the distance. That pretty much set the tone of craziness for the day. I quickly got my bearings, lost and found my photo lanyard in the sea of people and started to get too excited.
The stages were absolutely amazing, and also very terrifying. With nearly every drop in the music either fire, confetti or streamers were launched into the air and I quickly learnt to shoot with both eyes open and to be constantly on edge.
Although I am very very bias in saying that Drake was my favourite act of the day, looking back the Prodigy and Die Antwood were definitely life-making acts to photograph. Anyway here are some photos from the day as well as a few of my photofrands and me being a goofball at the end of the day.
And then on the other side of the lens...
Until next time!
