I primarily went to shoot Gallows because i’d heard rave reviews and seen great photos of them by Danny North. Unfortunately on the large arena stage and with a crowd who didn’t know them the band weren’t performing at their peak.
Apart from Gallows i wasn’t really familiar with the other acts which included Rise Against, Aiden and The Used. The stage light was also pretty rubbish, so i turned my camera round and started photographing the audience. So young and excited, they made a better spectacle than the acts on stage.
