I spent a very enjoyable and tiring weekend covering the Westonbirt Arboretum Forest Concerts.
Friday was Jessie J, Saturday was Paul Weller and Sunday was Jools Holland. All of the concerts were excellent but for me Jessie J and Jools Holland take top spot. Both were so good and both interacted with the audience so well it just made it them so much better. Paul Weller I have to say didnt interact with the audience very much at all.
It was also very interesting to observe the audience over the three nights. Jessie J was very much mum’s and daughters, Paul Weller was very much middle aged men with hair cuts made to look like that of Paul Weller and quite a bit of drinking going on. Jools Holland was very refined mixed sex, mixed age group.
I took close to 1600 images and found it really difficult to choose which ones to use so these are a fairly random selection from the collection.
All in all a good weekend and lots of lessons learnt being a photographer at big gigs rather than the more local ones I usually cover.
