Napa Valley Expo, Napa, CA. – Here’s a recap of Day 2’s BottleRock Music Festival live performances.
Check out my review in photos…
ALO: Animal LIberation Orchestra:
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts:
X: The Band:
The Avett Brothers:
The Black Crowes:
The first day shooting a festival is always a bit nerve-racking for me. Trying to find the easiest way to circumvent the crowds and get access to the stages and photo pits is the hardest. Schmoozing security guards and slipping through fences/entrances/exits ain’t easy!
Day 2 saw a really solid line-up of bands and the performances were outstanding. While there were 4 total stages, I really only worked the main [Will Power] stage and the [Citi] stage throughout the weekend. The main stage was really high and a pain in the ass to shoot. The Citi stage was more manageable. I ended up getting stage access for The Black Crowes, Moon Alice and ALO on this day.
Please stay tuned as I’ll be posting up full sets of some of the bands seen above in the near future.
