Got the nod that I could post these today and so I’ve simply selected one image from each act on the day other than Bananarama who I was told don’t clear any images these days. It’s a shame as they both look superb still and indeed put on a great show, as all the artists did. This was actually great fun whilst being rather demanding. Host and his sponsors requiring images back stage whilst also trying to grab images of the artists on stage in the heat of a pleasant summers day was thirsty work with many bottles of water consumed. The superb meals laid on for the AAA Pass Holders along with unlimited drinks helped make up for the rushing around.

On a technical front the images went from harsh sunlight to effectively backlit as there were no FOH spots. Only took my 24-70 and 70-200 and they were more than sufficient for the job attached to my 5Diii.

Met some great people throughout the day and looks like I’m already booked for next year 🙂
