As I write this I ache all over and am absolutely shattered (it’s 10AM on the Saturday morning). 2 days of The Great Escape Festival have gone and we are now into the final day..
For those of you who do not know TGE is a “new music” festival covering 3 days in 24 venues throughout Brighton. This means covering it is a case of running (ok, brisk walking) from venue to venue and trying to clamber to the front to get a position from which to shoot (many of the smaller venues do not have a “pit”).
Yesterday evening I shot 8 acts in the space of 4 hours starting with a special outdoor gig by The Futureheads at Audio and finishing with “I blame CoCo”. Between these there were a number of acts, some I have to say were quite poor but one I really liked was “Think about life”, a Canadian band with a lot of beat and life…
Now I need another cup of tea and to plan todays marathon..
