“A photography book by Australian Photographer Nic Bezzina about music festival crowds. Spanning 5 countries, and 9 unique festivals. This projects turns the camera away from the bands and captures the emotion of the crowd, that amorphous, vibrating creative with a thousand faces. Revealing both the intensity that comes with letting go, as well as the close communities inside which fans can truly be themselves. The festivals captured include: Wacken (Germany) Download (UK) Sonisphere (UK) Bloodstock (UK) Hellfest (France) Primervera Music (Spain) Big Day Out (AU) Soundwave (AU).”
