M4A SummerFest 2016

Sat 30 January 2016

Last Saturday I attended the first of Metal4Africa’s 2016 bi-annual festival events, the M4ASummerFest. Since the usual venue (Stellenbosch‘s Klein Libertas) is still under reconstruction, the fest was held at a new venue: a warehouse/langarm dance hall in Brackenfell Industria.

The vibe was great and the show lots of fun, here are some shots of the bands that performed: Megalodon, Wildernessking, The Drift, Subvers, Imperial Destruction, Wargrave, Take Hand, Fuera and Subject to Slaughter.

Mumford & Sons at the Grand Parade

Fri 29 January 2016

The first month of 2016 ended on a bang with Mumford & Sons’ massive show last Friday. The first of the band’s three packed Cape Town shows saw thousands at the Grand Parade to watch the headlining ‘gentlemen of the road’ as well as fellow internationals The Very Best and Baaba Maal and local favourites Beatenberg and John Wizards.

Here are some shots from Friday’s show.

Misc photos from 2015

 
2015

By the end of last year I was shooting 6 days/nights a week; spending more time with my camera than ever before has been great but unfortunately it doesn’t leave a lot of time for personal photography.

Here are some of the random personal photos I took over the last 12 months.

Music: 2015 in review

MUSIC

Another year has evaporated and it is now 2016, and my 9th last.fm anniversary.

Last.fm’s implemented a whole load of changes most of which I don’t really like but the improved graphs are interesting – looking back on mine I can see I didn’t listen to as much music as I usually do this year. I missed a lot of the big releases and will no doubt get into them belatedly over the next few months, but in the meantime here’s what I enjoyed listening to the most in 2014.
