Boomtown Festival - crazy times !

Published on Tue Dec 4, 2012 by

A look back at a music festival I covered in the summer. Boomtown is a relatively new event, based in Hampshire at the Matterley Bowl and featured some big names from the reggae and dance scenes. Probably the main reason I covered this festival was the appearance of Jamaican reggae legend Tanya Stephens. It was her first major UK festival and she absolutely rocked The Lion’s Den, headling the event on Friday evening. The rest of the weekend was equally good - loads of great punk / ska / reggae bands, millions of DJs and a completely crazy up for it crowd. Imagine the late night elements of Glastonbury going off and doing their own mini-festival and you have a good idea of the crazyness !

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
