Summer of Light & Sound / by Matsu Photography

With Stereosonic on the out and summer well and truly behind us, I thought about looking back at some of my favourite big stage shots. From Tame Impala in Melbourne to Listen Out in September, Wonderland, Stereo, Origin NYE to the last Sets on the Beach I look back at some great moments and epic stages. Artists pictured include Skepta, RL Grime, Major Lazr, Tame Impala, Armin Van Buuren, Alison Wonderland, Joey Bada$$, Broods, Childish Gambino, Jamie XX, Fourtet, Leftfield, Shockone, Sable, John Butler Trio, Fat Freddy's Drop and more. 

I really do love shooting a massive stage. The energy, atmosphere, scale and chaos really speak to me. It's within this chaos that I try and find peace and clarity within my frames. I definitely have a strong love for the silhouette and have an ever changing grade. Big love out to all the artists, managers, labels, promoters, and venues that let me do my thing. Also, shout outs to all my brothers and sisters going in at events and letting me cut in front for that shot.

And lastly love out to all my fellow photographers killing it, having me on board or working collab with me.

Peace. Matsu

PS. This post could have easily ballooned out to 300+ images :S but arm wrestled it down to just over 100.
