Liverpool music photographer covers Glastonbury and Africa Oye

Published on Thu Jul 8, 2010 by

I have been busy working at two music festivals shooting for specialist picture agency ArenaPAL.

In Liverpool, over a sunny weekend early June, Sefton Park hosted Africa Oye. It is the UK's biggest free African music festival and proved again to be a massive success with 30 000 plus people visiting. Definately one of the highlights of the year for me and just a short walk from my house - great !

Later in June as usual, I covered Glastonbury Festival for ArenaPAL in Somerset for the third year running with full press acreditation. The weekend was hot and thankfully mudless. Highlights below.
