Boardmasters on 35mm

I absolutely love shooting with film, especially 35mm. It always looks so retro, particularly black and white. I didn't want to take any of my cameras to Boardmasters so I picked up two Ilford HP5 disposables and I'm obsessed with the outcome! Albeit I used my phone to take a tonne of photos but it was so nice to capture memories in a more traditional form too.
My boyfriend got me a ticket for the festival as a birthday gift and it was such a blast. We explored Newquay for the first two days, cramming in every possible Cornish tradition (think pasties, cream tea and good ol' fish and chips) and when the festival came around we watched some of our favourite bands play live, discovered some pretty damn talented acoustic artists and completely lost concept of time whilst dancing at The Point. A lot of alcohol was consumed and we also made time on the Sunday to have a wander around the stalls and even discovered the secret bar that you access through a purple portaloo! My highlights where Lower Than Atlantis (Obviously), Jax Jones, Prides, Blonde and surprisingly Lethal Bizzle - but I still stand by my word when I say I hate grime music, this was an exception!! 
We're actually considering returning next year - Have you been to a festival this year or do you have any planned?


  1. I love black and white photos. It has that really nice retro feel to it x

  2. Great photos, makes me excited for Reading this month. I only managed to get a day ticket this year for the saturday, but I am going to make sure I make it a good one!
