Big Day Out
26-27 January 2014
I have never had the desire to photograph Big Day Out festival, even though they always brought out the best and the biggest acts to Australia. The reason I held off from the festival was the large crowds and it is usually the hottest day of the year or heavy rainfall. (January is summer in Australia) But when Big Day Out promoters put out a statement, that the festival is going on an indefinite hiatus, I knew I had to photograph it. It turned out to be the best festival to work at and the weather was merciful last year. Photographers got a hub to recharge and store gear, backstage access and buffet to share with artists, which hardly ever happens at festivals in Australia. Here is a small selection of photos from the final, iconic Big Day Out.
Gear: 2 x Canon 5D mk ii / Canon 15mm f2.8 / Canon 24 – 105mm f4L / Canon 100 – 400mm f4.5-5.6L
