Encore! Encore!

For the love of music! Play on! 

Still railing from the Sofar Music Festival I attended recently. Held in the rustic, chic warehouse in Battersea London. This was a one-day event taking over a warehouse with a line-up that was only announced on the day. I have attended many a concert but this was an enthralling experience. A warehouse laden with cozy small sofars(hence the title), comfy carpets and cushions. It was all very civilised. Beautiful setting with dim lights, creating a rather intimate feel in a semi packed warehouse.

The festival was organised by Sofar Sounds. They bring bands in people's living rooms and stream the results on the internet. The day was loaded with talented musicians, beat boxers, burlesque dancer, and poets. I was mesmerised by The Ruby Kid and his spoken word. Deer tracks who came on stage with a saw and used that as an instrument and Brother and Bones who got the crowd singing along to their tracks. Its a shame all music festivals are not like this.

Below are some of my shots from the festival. More pictures on my Facebook. Also videos from the festival can be found on my YouTube.
