I was eagerly anticipating both Thurston Moore and Shellac at Meredith Music Festival’s 25th anniversary and they didn’t disappoint. So much good at this festival, it’s hard to know where to begin with the praise.

My first time at this lovely festival, was excited to see Ron Sexsmith, Robert Forster, Hoodoo Gurus and Cookin’ on Three Burners with Stella Angelico and Tex Perkins, but the whole festival didn’t disappoint!
Photographed Junction Arts Festival with the fantastic Photo Mob crew again this year. Junction is a fantastic participatory arts festival with a huge range of events, but with limited time this year I focussed on capturing the bands and left the rest of the festival to other Photo Mob members.
In only its second year, this intimate festival takes place in a secluded forest in northern Tasmania.
