Phoenix was on my have-to-photograph-before-I-die list from a long while, and they didn't play in Ireland for years (someone told me 'cause they had a bad experience on an irish festival years ago), so I couldn't miss their performance at longitude. To be honest I had mixed feelings before, I love their third album, not that much the new one, and Phoenix could be one of the bands that are amazing live, or simply terrible, despite of how their album sound (example: White Lies, decent album terrible live band). Thankfully they fell in the first option, and actually I was really well impressed by their live performance, they still can't beat Foals, but they were pretty good.
As they were the main band of that thay, all the lights were for them, I was a bit worried from the giant red screen, but at the end the pictures turned great, and, if possible, got even more better photos than foals (a couple of them are already on my main site in the Music category).
Anyway, a great band to see and photograph. Here the usual pictures, and as usual you can find the full set by clicking here.
