    Oh my, these bands look totally lame.

  • Nay

    Deadly snaps, well done Ian! The Laurel Collective look cool…and the beach itself 🙂

  • colin

    Trust Ian to get some great band shots! The Sugars ones look the best. Great shots.

  • Nice spread!

    I was there too – shame I didn’t bump into you Ian…

  • Brighton Boy

    Did that dude ever leave Audio?? So many better bands (and probably better photographers!! I thought state was a quality publication. If you had bothered to edit the photos you would realise they’re all shit!!

    Maybe I was a bit harsh…

  • Went last year and it was class. Saw Gallows and Rolo Tomassi in this underground beach bar place, full of sweat and violent dancing. Couldn’t make it this year, unfortunately..
