This year’s Beacons Festival has felt like a long time coming. Over the past few months, there’s been a fair bit of Beacons-related activity on the blog as half a dozen of my pictures from the first two years have been used in advertising for this year’s festival.
I was then invited to join the Beacons photo team this year. It was a strange experience: wanting to shoot the same way I have the past two years whilst also having the privileged access of a backstage pass to get all the pictures I could dream of. I’m no seasoned gig photographer so this was definitely a novelty. Nevertheless, just like the last two years, I had an absolute blast and no doubt I’ll be in Skipton again next year taking pictures, officially or not. Year on year, Beacons is growing into a real highlight of the summer music calendar and I can’t recommend it enough.
