This year I photographed Deni Bluesfest (the sister festival to Byron Bay Bluesfest) for the first time, and it was a fantastic experience! Only a few hours drive from Melbourne, this was probably the most laid back festival I have ever attended.
The staff and festival goers were all very friendly, and as VIPs we were very well looked after.
I had a great time and would highly recommend this festival to anyone who doesn’t want to travel to Byron Bay for Bluesfest – it’s on a smaller scale, but that makes the festival much easier to get around.
John Mayer was the reason I went to photograph this festival, but I discovered so much more than I expected, from both musicians and the festival itself. Stand out acts were Gary Clark Jr, Michael Franti, The Doobie Brothers, Elvis Costello, and of course John Mayer.
