Malakoff Rockfestival 2009 - First Batch

It has became a summer tradition for me the be a festival photographer at Malakoff Rockfestival. I think this is my fourth or fifth year. The first couple of years I was trained by a more experienced guy, Anders (can't recall his surname, will come back to that), but now he has left the festival, and I has been the experienced guy. One year I did the job on my own, but that's far beyond recommendable hectic, to shot, edit and upload constantly.

Hopefully last year was the last without a stable crew. This year I asked for help from my "colleges" in Nordfjord Fotoklubb. So now it is time to harvest, and concentrate on having fun.

Every year from the first humble start the festival has grown, and improved in other ways. It's been awarded as best festival from the Norwegian Rock Union twice. The formula has been a relaxed but professional atmosphere, behind and in front of the stage. So I'm rather proud of being a part of the process, making a small but important contribution.

Ok. Enough about me, myself and I ;-)
Let the pictures speak.

Whats a rock festival without audience? Nothing I'd say.

The cute girls in the front row is what caught my attention.  
Concider the red head behind them as a bonus :-)

Ok. That's it for now. Got plenty of more pictures, but they will have to wait.

Comments appreciated.
