Beacons Festival 2014 (Part One)

This year's Beacons Festival has felt like a long time coming. Over the past few months, there's been a fair bit of Beacons-related activity on the blog as half a dozen of my pictures from the first two years have been used in advertising for this year's festival (all collected here with more updates on the way).

I was then invited to join the Beacons photo team this year. It was a strange experience: wanting to shoot the same way I have the past two years whilst also having the privileged access of a backstage pass to get all the pictures I could dream of. I'm no seasoned gig photographer so this was definitely a novelty. Nevertheless, just like the last two years, I had an absolute blast and no doubt I'll be in Skipton again next year taking pictures, officially or not. Year on year, Beacons is growing into a real highlight of the summer music calendar and I can't recommend it enough.

If you fancy some reminiscing whilst you're here, don't forget to have a look at my Beacons posts from 2012 and 2013. Also, there's a load more photos from this year's festival to come so watch this space.

Judging from the photos I've posted on Twitter, it seems that these pictures are going to encourage more than my usually modest web traffic and some new visitors (hi!) might not know what I'm about. If you're interested, take a look at my website - - or drop me an email - - or say hi on Twitter - @matt_mjlc.
