I won't go in to details, even though it was only yesterday I am sure you have heard the slander & abuse that the organisers received from all directions after the event took place yesterday.

I was lucky enough to shoot the festival for the 2nd time running on behalf of Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying & Fasterlouder - click the photo below to view some of the highlight shots or view them all here

Bands I ended up shooting: Scary Kids, Haste The Day, Plain White T's, Thursday, Bleeding Through, Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, Alexisonfire & As I Lay Dying.

On the note of AILD - they walked off early after their guitarist Nick copped a glass bottle to the face & was practically knocked out from the blow. Moments like these are what ruin festivals & the decision for bands to return....what is the point of standing in the crowd when a band is playing if your intentions are to hurt/injure them - I hope the inflictor gets what's coming to him/her!

If you're ever after a photographer for any occasion - feel free to shoot me an email - dan@dbedford.com - a brief set of rates are up on my 'About' page at the moment - keep in mind I am still to write a short bio about myself, if anyone I know is keen to do it for me, please do so!
