This edition of Pangaea Festival is now the eighth that Decoy Media has provided music event photography services for. Requiring two photographers to cover the sheer size of the project, as it is (possibly) the largest student run festival in the world.
It always plays host to a large array of live and DJ acts across the Manchester Academy venues complex which neighbours the university. Alongside the performance entertainment provided on the night, a huge amount of time is invested by staff and volunteers to decorate the spaces to really transform the areas that are so commonly used. This not only makes it a great photographic opportunity for us, but due to the fact the running theme changes every event, there is always something new brought to the table.
Some of the artists featured in the latest edition were Wild Beasts, Benton, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Dub Conductor, Eliphino, Fred V & Grafix, Horse Meat Disco, Icicle ft SP:MC, Keeno, Mungos Hifi, Nu:tone b2b Logistics, Red Eye Hifi ft Skittles, Riot Jazz, Whiney and Zak Abel.
Particular highlights for us were hearing the great band Wild Beasts live for the first time along with Nu:tone b2b Logistics, artists from the Hospital Records label - another long standing client of ours.
