I had the good fortune of seeing and shooting some of my favourite bands for the Sled Island festival in Calgary this year. It was four bleary 16 hour days of ringing ears, sweaty everythings and stoked inspiration.
You can see some of my other work, as well as some awesome stuff from the whole photography crew from each day of the festival, here. The Editor’s Choice album is a great summary of just how rad this festival is.
Below are some my own favourite shots from the weekend, many of which are not on the Sled Island Flickr page. I hope you like!
