Then there are the headline acts. U2 were outstanding however I am identifying my generation here. Coldplay no less so. For these events I stood up close wishing to photograph the individual artists. For Beyonce I decided to stand back on the hill to capture the broader perspective. Eventually when I made it up the hill I was sitting on my own watching it all beneath me like a surreal model, but in real life. The remarkable thing about this image is how clear Beyonce is on the stage. The image reminds me of a Gursky image I saw years ago where despite having thousands of people present at the event that one key person stands out. And so she did!!!
Beyonce Glastonbury 2011
U2 - The streets with no name
BB King - The Godfather of Jazz
Don Maclean - American Pie
Paul Simon - The Boy in the Bubble. An understatement to say a living legend
