Riot Fest 2014

Working at Riot Fest 2014 was one of the most rewarding, inspiring, exciting and just plain ol' fun days from 2014. Running from stage to stage, setting up on the fly social media contesting, photographing some amazing bands and just simply hanging out with some of the best people. The mud soaked fields of Downsview Park were no match for our dedicated crew. Working at the festival is such a different experience than attending them but nonetheless, in those few moments of downtime I soaked in every second of those incredible performances. Here are some of my favourite shots from the weekend.
