Each year Standon Calling gets bigger and better. This was my fourth time shooting the festival but sadly due to other commitments I could only photograph day two with George Ezra headlining the main stage. Definitely the festival as the go to festival to see the next big artist or band. I finally got to see and photograph Shame who for me is the band of the moment. By far the best live performance I have seen in ages but hidden gems were Nelson Can and Ten Tonnes aka Ethan Barnett. Superb live sets from both. Strong performances from Genghar and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club before the headline act George Ezra took to the stage. I remember shooting a portrait of George Ezra at the Old Blue Last for Burberry on an iPhone 5. Back then you knew with the songs he performed that night he was always destined to headline a festival slot. Another quality line-up from Alex and his team at Standon and looking forward to see what 2019 brings.
