I finally get to show you the photos I took at Forbidden Fruit last weekend. On Saturday we kicked off the day with an interview with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne which was amazing as I'm a big fan of them and he was such a good interviewee. I really think he would have talked for hours if we had the time. We also interviewed Irish band Ham Sandwich, Belgian band The Subs, British beatboxer Beardyman and another Irish band called Spies.
We rounded off the day in the photographers pit filming the opening of the Flaming Lips performance which was incredible! Wayne Coyne began the show inflating himself into a giant plastic ball and crowdsurfing in it, there were confetti guns, a megaphone with sparklers and coloured smoke coming from it and giant multi-coloured balloons (I got Donnacha to take a photo of me in front of them backstage).
