I attended Bestival this year and it’s the first time the music festival has made it’s way to Canada from the UK. Artists like Flume, Grandtheft, Banks, Florence and the Machine, Clean Bandit, Sbtrkt, Jamie XX, Nas and many more made it an incredible experience. I decided to take my camera and document some of the action. Nothing compared to one of my fave music festival photographers, Sarah Bahbah, but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless. xx

Parris upgrades any day – damn’t she’s otherworldly! This video is from 2012, and the precision and musicality blows my mind! By the way it’s real time not sped up. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you reach 2:30 time in the video. Enjoy ;) xx
P.S Let’s not even touch the styling in this video. Too on point for words.
