Wow what a great weekend V Festival was, from opening act Paloma Faith to ending on a high with Kasabian. A truly great weekend. The GX20 & Pentax DA* 50-135mm 2.8 with their weatherproofing certainly helped with the amount of fluids thrown around during The Courteeners & kasabians set, along with the rain on Sunday, which helped get some great crowd shots.
Went to see Venacava’s biggest local gig to date at the Memorial Hall where bands have not appeared there for a very long time. The band invited me to cover the gig for them, which I was proud to do.
Venacava played a superb set to the 300 plus audience. The fans pushing the crush barrier over within the first three songs, the bar drunk dry by 9-30 & the final song resulting in a full on stage invasion. This was an I was there moment & one I was pleased to cover for this superb local band.
