Kelly Rowland. Eddie Izzard. Pete Doherty. Kano. Chipmunk. VV Brown. These are some of the acts who performed at the Love Music Hate Racism Festival in Stoke on 30th May 2009. DJC Design was there to capture all the action.
Billed as ‘Stoke’s biggest ever day of music’, the festival didn’t disappoint the thousands of people who gathered in Stoke’s Britannia Stadium. It was brilliant seeing so many young people there who were both fans of music and politically active and aware.
Love Music Hate Racism draws acts and DJs from across the musical spectrum to celebrate Britain’s diverse multicultural society and this event aimed to encourage music fans to use their vote to stop racist and fascist parties from grabbing seats in the 4 June 2009 European Parliament elections.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
