Sonisphere Festival 2014

Sonisphere rocked! Too many stories to share, and a load of bands photographed! Some of them I can’t post here as they will be printed in Terrorizer Magazine first. But in the meantime, here is the Festival in pictures through my eyes.   Before Metallica took the stage, the fans at the barrier decided to chant my name. I made a video of it! (Though it does actually sound like ‘Murray’ rather than ‘Marie’) An absolute blast! Can’t wait to share with you my live pics, of Metallica in particular! Mx

What a nice welcome :) • Friday I shot – Voivod, W.A.S.P., Anthrax, Papa Roach and Down • Hung with Parkway Drive who are awesome dudes. I think they used their meal tickets […]
