The Big Chill

The Big Chill, originally uploaded by Ben Yacobi.

I went to the Big Chill Festival in Shropshire this weekend. it was my first music festival as a photographer. Well, first camping festival - I had photo passes for SXSW, Radio 1's Big Weekend, Summer case in Barcelona and, er, the iTunes festival - but none of those were proper festivals in the classic sense.

It was great fun - even though the Wifi in the Press Office was down. The Press office doesn't exactly have a complicated remit: distribute passes, give advice, and provide a means for journalists and photographers to get their info out to the outside world! They did put on a decent bar tent though.

Anyway the sun shined for most of it and I got to see Leonard Cohen and The Mighty Boosh among others...
