Live at Squamish 2011 Music Festival

Girl Talk

I spent the past weekend up in Squamish, BC for the 2011 Live at Squamish Music Festival.

Live at Squamish 2011

Here’s some of my favorite photos from the two day festival of outdoor concerts.

Day One

Emily Haines & James Shaw: Metric (Acoustic)

Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric did an acoustic set:

then Vancouver’s own Hey Ocean did a great set on the main stage:

I don’t think anyone in the photo pit liked the camera crane:

The John Butler Trio was up next:

many of the instruments had GoPro cameras rigged up to give an interesting view of the musicians which I really liked

The highlight for me was definitely Girl Talk who closed the evening:

Unfortunately, the onboard mic on my DSLR couldn’t quite keep up with the wall of bass hitting it but here’s a little clip:

It was a pretty epic weekend of music, friends and lots of sunshine. Here’s a slideshow of all the photos I posted to Flickr from the weekend:

Also be sure to check out Rebecca’s coverage of the festival which I contributed to.
