Big Day Out gallery 3 of 5
Has been a trip in the big day out memory hole thanks to @doublejradio and @pike_gemma’s BDO podcast. Inside that hole I’ve lost my shoes, friends and my shirt is stretched out to 10x the size it started the day and I should be more concerned about how I’m actually getting home. BDO tickets where my regular Christmas present and I literally spent all summer holidays anticipating that one day.
I started shooting the festival about 16 years after I would have really liked to. But after diving into the archives it still comes across as, sun drenched, vibrant, musically diverse and just that touch out of control as I remember it in the 90s.
