By chance I was chatting to Wayne Barton, he is the owner of the cottage that we go to at Mdumbi, and he happened to mention the Mdumbi Green Fair Music Festival. He is the main organiser of the event. My ears pricked up and I immediately volunteered Matt and my services. I love photographing events. Firstly it provided an excuse to go visit my favourite place in South Africa and secondly it would give us an opportunity to help promote the event and thereby help the local community and the Transcape NPO project. I feel that the place gives me so much that any form of help from my side would be a tiny payback in return. You can read all about the festival here. Apart from the event having the most unbelievable setting right on the Mdumbi point, the organisers had done an awesome job of creating a perfect environment for the event. There were so many amazing things going on such as the local ladies doing all the cooking and providing the festival goers with tasty food(not outside caterers), bands planting their own trees, local acts been given the chance to perform, the rehabilitation garden, the event being kept as green as possible, and many more. What was so amazing to see was the band members interacting with the fans and instead of heading straight for the VIP area they instead went and danced with the fans who were watching the other bands perform or just hung out on the grass embankments and soaked it all in. In fact the VIP area was a bit of a waste as it was almost always empty. There were no heirs and graces and “do you know who I am” but instead everyone was there for the same reason and that was to support this local project and to have a good time with everyone else. Matt and I worked some long hours but it was all worth it. We managed to stay an extra day after the event and captured some incredible landscape images. That blog will follow soon.
