Best kept festival secret in UK ... Africa Oye. Free, easy central location, great music and a brilliant weekend weather wise. I've been covering this festival for ArenaPAL since 2006 and it has opened up loads of doors for me as a photographer. I've built up a massive collection of world music artists, talked to people from all around the planet and been invited to cover loads of other gigs, events and festivals off the back of it. I'm featuring loads from 2014 on my Liverpool photographer Tumblr blog, so if you want to see more head over via the jump. Loads of images on there, both recent and from my archive. Click on 'Festivals' on the left hand menu.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch to licence any of these images directly from me. Or if you are planning a world music event in the UK / Europe give me a shout and if I am available I'd love to come along and do some photography.music, world, AfricaOye Author: David J Colbran
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week – we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed."
