Every autumn we see the annual scramble for tickets to Glastonbury festival. On October 9, 2016 tickets for the 250,000 capacity Glastonbury festival sold out in just 35 minutes. Of course, that is not the end of the road for Glastonbury fans. The official Glastonbury festival lineup will be released in the next couple of weeks. Shortly after that, fans who now find that they no longer wish to attend, can cancel their attendance and their Glastonbury tickets will be offered for resale on the official Glastonbury website. There will, of course, be a scramble for the Glastonbury ticket re-sale, but would fans be better advised to go elsewhere, for example to Bearded Theory Festival?
Last weekend saw me at what will be my last music festival of this season. One of the joys of festivals for me is wandering around to find the weird and wacky things that are going on and I have to say that Bestival was a joy in this respect.
Sunday was a beautiful day and as I wandered around I came across a band playing New Orleans style Jazz rhythms, I watched fascinated as these two guys performed tumbles and somersaults to the musical background. I was a mighty entertaining few minutes. Enjoy the photographs.
If you were at Tonefest this weekend you may have spotted me lugging my cameras around. The chances are I may have caught you on film (well digital) when you didn’t expect it.
Please have a browse, if you spot yourself and want a copy of the photograph just drop me a line through the contact button above. you are welcome to a free high resolution copy.

It probably won’t surprise anyone that I didn’t take many photographs on Sunday at Download. I have to confess by Sunday afternoon I was sick of rain and mud. My cameras were covered in mud, I had mud in my ears and up my nose. This was not a day to capture quality images so I concentrated on shooting bands inside the tents.
Here a few of the shots I did take of fans at the festival.
