Øyafestivalen 2018

My pictures from the 2018 edition of the Norwegian festival Øyafestivalen. While it is always nice to visit my neighborhood festival, more and more artists have bans professional photographers or hand out terrible photo contracts, that I will characterize as unsignable.

This year we were not allowed to shoot Arctic Monkeys and Kendrick Lamar, for instance (artists I have photographed in the past at festivals like Roskilde and Øya without any problems).

I will probably not be working as a photographer at festivals after this season, as I am really tired of carrying heavy equipment and not being able to work with (most of) the festival headliners. A sad development for concert photography indeed.
