Soundwave Festival Round One: Sydney 2014

This year I flew to Sydney to shoot Soundwave Festival for Metal Obsession, and it was pretty epic. I ended up shooting 28 bands on the day (almost double what I would shoot for other single day festivals).

Thankfully because I knew I would be shooting the Melbourne leg, and this one I was shooting for a metal website, it made it a bit easier to plan my timetable. In other words, shoot as many heavy/metal bands on the bill that I could, and leave all the others for Melbourne. There were a few exceptions to this though such as Placebo and The Living End (two of my favourite bands) and AFI who I definitely wanted to shoot twice.

You know it’s going to be an awesome day when the first band you shoot (Amon Amarth) have a full viking ship on stage.

Here’s a ‘best of’ from the Sydney leg, where it all started. You can view more on my Flickr.
