Proud to say the second big book project I've worked on is out now! @transformfestivaljournal (link in bio) is a yearly journal of the world's most awe-inspiring community, art and music-based events featuring hundreds of beautifully captured images, together with inspiring articles and information on over 20 of these incredible events. Festivals have had quite a profound impact on my life, ever since my first festival experience at @exitfestival in 2009. Since then every festival experience has helped me grow and evolve, from the stresses and strains of events like Burning Man - where the extreme conditions really bring out your best (and worst) - to finding love with a extremely special and unique person (the love story is in this book), to learning to care less about what people think of me, taking pleasure in simple actions such as paying compliments to strangers, spreading positivity as often as possible, having deep and meaningful/inane conversations free from the pressure of time (a definite favourite), dressing up in the silliest clothes, non-stop jokes and laughs, witnessing some of the most unforgettable sunrises and sunsets I've ever seen, dancing til dawn, child-like wonder and adventures, connecting with an assorted cast of misfits and weirdos who represent the strange, diverse kaleidoscope that is the human race and reminding myself that life is for living. Festivals can give us the opportunity to to release ourselves from the shackles that we place on ourselves in society at large and just enjoy having a bloody good time, just for a few days, to remind ourselves that life doesn't always have to be so serious. Always keep in mind that we are the lucky ones who are privileged enough to be able to do this stuff, so don't take it for granted. If it wasn't for festivals I would not be sat here with another book under my belt, a beautiful person by my side and a confident, optimistic outlook on life and I hope this book will inspire a few people to investigate the festivals showcased in the book and take their first steps on a similar path... #transform #transformfestivaljournal #book #festivalbook #festival #festivals #music #burningman #musicfestival
