Sugar Mountain Festival 2017

This year’s Sugar Mountain Festival at Victorian College Of The Arts was probably their best yet. The music was excellent, but this year they really stepped it up in the arts category with the stage design, art installations and Sensory Restaurant experience.

All photos were shot with my Nikon D800 and Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 or 70-200mm f2.8 lenses. If you’d like to see more you can view them on my Flickr.

The most impressive part of Sugar Mountain this year by far was the Sensory Restaurant experience which combined food, sound and visuals. This year’s list of collaborators were ‘Stranger Things’ soundtrack writers S U R V I V E, visual artist Daniel Arkham and award-winning chef Peter Gunn. Each participant had to dress in a white lab coat and eat their meal in a mostly dark with room while wearing goggles with small lights either side to see their food.
