At the Edge of the Sea 2014

It doesn’t seem five years ago that I documented my first Wedding Present mini festival at Concorde 2 in Brighton, but then it also doesnt seem two days ago that I was getting ready to shoot this years eclectic musical extravaganza, courtesy of David Gedge of The Wedding Present. Nevertheless, we are now at the end of an unforgettable weekend of fantastic music and all that is left is to share the photos.

Guilfest 2014

Guilfest was back this year, Hurrah! It seemed a bit quieter than usual, partly down to the late confirmation of the festival, I assume but I’m sure that the threat of storms of biblical proportions also had a bit to do with it. As it happened, the storms stayed away, the show rolled on and everyone had a fantastic time. Here are a few photos from the weekend.


Back At the Edge of the Sea

Once again, August Bank holiday in Brighton brought the sunshine and the crowds, and the London to Brighton Scooter run…oh, it also brought At the Edge of the Sea – the fantastic mini-festival curated by David Gedge and the Wedding Present – back to Concorde 2 for it’s fifth year. The format this year was shaken up a little and instead of a sister festival up north, as has been the case in the previous two years (At the Edge of the Peaks, previously held in Holmfirth), the Brighton festival became a two-day event.

Saturday featured Tensheds, Cinerama, The Missing Season, The Fireworks, Marlin, Flying Wing, Dog in the Snow, The Twilight Sad and the Wedding Present.

Sunday featured Monster Bobby, Cinerama, Sivu, No Middle name, Terry de Castro, The Flatmates, Pete Fij & Terry Bickers, Miles Hunt and Erica Nockells of the Wonderstuff and The Wedding Present.

Siglo21 and Cat Fire Radio

These two motley crews were playing at the Prince Albert on Good Friday. Some great music was played by both bands. If you get the opportunity to see them, I would recommend it.




The fantastic spectacle of Lewes Bonfire took place (as always) on the 5th, click on the photo below for my gallery for the evening.
