Asbury Park, NJ 5.19-20.12 – Music festival season is upon us… A few months ago, I descended upon Asbury Park, NJ to check out and shoot the Bamboozle Festival. For those of you that know me…you know I hate mass gatherings of people…so this wasn’t going to be easy! Shooting festivals is fun once you figure out all the ins/outs of where everything is and how to effectively get to it among the crowds. Festivals try to stagger out the bands set times so that you can try to see [or in my case shoot] as many of the bands as possible.
With that being said, I formulated a plan of who I wanted to shoot, what time they were playing and where among the festival their stage was at. The lineup was extremely diverse from hip-hop to punk to electronic to rock music to comedy. I wasn’t able to get down there for friday night’s lineup but I ripped through saturday and sunday…shooting 15 bands over the 2 days.
Here are a few shots from the weekend…

There are also individual galleries of each band that I photographed on my site as well.
