In The Spotlight with Kasabian

Benicassim – Kasabian

The air in Benicassim throbs with heat, with screams, with expectation. Overhead somewhere, the sky must be thick with darkness but right here, right now, everything is bright. We hurry through a makeshift corridor, flanked by security, and burst into open space as the crowd goes wild.

Sixty thousand people applaud and scream, their outstretched hands rippling like stalks of corn in a hurricane. We’ve arrived at the same time as Kasabian and we stand in the few metres that separate the stage from the audience.

This is the Benicassim 2010 Music Festival and we’re just getting started.

Continues with Behind the Scenes at Benicassim, The Prodigy Live and finally Living Like a Rock Star – Benicassim FIB in Photos.

    Just had another look! Amazing photos! The first is my favorite! Love it! The light in the back… just the shadow of that guy & the light on the hand & a bit on the guitar.
    How long did you were with him in the studio? ;-)

    Wow! Awesome photos! I can almost feel the tension in the first one…. the blast of noise in the second, and the crowd going wild in the last one. Absolutely fantastic!

    I must agree with how nice the photos were taken. It’s great to be mixing our love for travel and music all in one.

    Thanks everyone – I’m really pleased with how the photos turned out. The music wasn’t too bad either…;)

    I met someone in the pub tonight who remembered these photos from over a year ago and commented again on how great they are. The first and second ones still blow my mind….

      Serious? Wow! I would say “Good job, Abi!” :)

      But I agree, especially the first pic is hard to forget.
