Glastonbury Festival 2014 / The 1975

So this year I got to go to Glastonbury Festival 2014 twice over 3 days to photograph The 1975 who I shoot for…………

Ive not been to the festival since 2010 with the Gorillaz, and the festival site was just as big as I remembered then, in other words bloody massive! Lucky I arrived as the band did on the Thursday afternoon, and picked my pass up…..

At around 4pm a few of us decided to walk from where the tour bus was parked (Red car park) to the Williams Green stage to get a breath of fresh air, and get a feel of the Glastonbury site, it was pissing it down already!! Getting very muddy already….. Not a great start really!

The 1975 were told they, or anybody associated with the band could not ‘tweet or post anything online’ about the secret gig the band were playing on the Williams Green stage  that night (Thursday) to open the festival for fear of the tent/stage been so packed it could be a safety issue, the word did get out a bit, but in general it was kept quite……

By the time the band came on word was out and the tent was over packed, and they played a blinding set to open Glastonbury 2014.

I woke up on Friday morning to torrential driving rain…… It looked bloody awful, if Im truthful.

I had to go home to shoot a big job I had in my home town early Saturday morning. so I left………. And edited my pictures when i got home.

 

Early Sunday morning I drove back to the festival to shoot the band (154 odd miles),and thank the Lord the Sun was out……. The 1975 were on the main stage (Pyramid) at 2.45pm and were really focused for their show!!

The band played an amazing set, the massive crowed to see them, loving every minute it was great to shoot the show…… I loved every minute and tried to shoot every moment I could!

Dolly Parton followed the lads onto the main stage and I admit I really wanted to shoot this country legend from the pit at the front of Pyramid stage as normally you are made to shoot from the mixing desk at the back of the arenas and she went down a storm……

As for Glastonbury Festival 2014 I loved every minute, while admittedly I was there dodging the rain and mud……. But boy its one big festival…….
