Shooting for three clients was a bit stressful. And though I did make it through it all without major physical or mental damages one thing is for sure; I ain't gonna do that shit again!
Every year I say to myself that this is gonna be the last time I'm shooting at Roskilde Festival, because I never really get to enjoy the concerts that I wanna see! And of course I said the same thing this year and look what I end up doing anyway!?
Damn I'm happy to be home again, this is the first time I've stayed at Roskilde Festival for 8 straight days living in a fucking tent! I must admit that I moved my tent to the restricted camping area the last 4 days, which was freakin awesome! Free baths, clean toilets, free cell phone charging and no fucking piss smell! NO MORE LIVING AT THE REGULAR CAMPING SITE... I guess I'm getting old;-)
Well, enough rambling for now. Here are my selected concert shot from Roskilde festival 2013!
One more thing, I was supposed to buy a wide angle from a guy, a Canon 24mm L 1.4 but got stood up by him an hour before I left for Roskilde, so I ended up shooting every concert with my manual focus Carl Zeiss 50mm and a Canon 70-200mm L 2.8, which was a serious pain in the ass!
Later on our paths have crossed and we now share more than just a coffee -I helped him and his dj crew out with some press photos and have been doing it ever since.

Miguel was my last concert to shoot before I could head home, but it was also a concert that I really wanted to see/hear. His live performance was off the hook, you could hear every word of what he sang. I was told that his stage performance was pretty tacky when he was in Copenhagen performing. And Ooooh boy how he did proove them right, it was really tacky but in a good way! Made the whole damn thing even more entertaining! Miguel is the new generation's Prince... just with more visible abs;-)
Looking forward to next year's Roskilde Festival, not sure if I'm gonna shoot concerts again, but let's wait and see when we get closer!
