The weekend before last I attended Forbidden Fruit festival in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art. You might remember the posts I did about last year's festival here and here. This year instead of taking photographs and helping out I was filming the live acts.
This was my first time filming at a festival and getting up close to the stage and the performers so I was a bit nervous about how it was going to go but I had a really fun time and apart from a run in with a grumpy photographer it all went pretty smoothly.
I didn't get to take many photos this year unfortunately and also it was raining and really gross for the first two days so there wasn't much to look at, but you can get an idea of what it was like below. The photos include my own and some from fellow camera operator Mark and my bff Niall. Enjoy!
Ok there's a bit of a story behind this. When Katie and Ashley were over visiting in March we all went to a gig in Whelan's and when we got home Donnacha mentioned in passing to me that James Vincent McMorrow was there. What he didn't know was that Katie is mad about him and was of course devastated she didn't get to see/meet him. So we were skyping a while ago and Katie wrote us a note and held it to the camera but she write it backwards so we "could read it" which of course didn't work so we were making fun of her a bit and Donnacha wrote the note above which reads "Katie is mud" as in dum (without the B) backwards and so it was a bit of a running joke. Then we told her we were filming some of J V McM's set at Forbidden fruit and I told her we would find him backstage and ask him for a photo with the Katie is mud sign and so Donnacha spotted him on the second day and ran over and asked him and he obliged and of course when we posted it on Facebook for Katie she almost died with excitement. Whew!!
