Positive Vibration reggae festival in Liverpool - photos from 2021

Published on Wed Sep 15, 2021 by

Fantastic weekend shooting at the Positive Vibration festival here in Liverpool. Highlight for me wasn't an act but a sound rig installed in a club that already has quite a good system ! Hanger 34 hosted the Sinai Soundsystem, which has been rocking the reggae vibes out of Sheffield since 2013. And it ran both days with guest performers and some of their own DJs playing.

It really was one of the most incredible experiences hearing and feeling this system - when running at full pelt it created that full-on body vibration. But without the usual distortion. Reminded me of times spent at Notting Hill Carnival and more recently the better systems in clubs like Fabric, The End and Berghain. Massive respect to Huw and the crew.

"The photos were great, they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
