We Are Revellers: A Celebration of Festival Goers

We_Are_RevellersEver since we spent the winter in an RV riding 50 different ski areas in 100 days, the MFW crew have been big fans of folks with big dreams. Our friends over at We Are Revellers have announced such a dream for next year — they plan on hitting festivals from British Columbia to Costa Rica snapping portraits of festival fans.

There are always loads of professional style photos of the artists, but what makes this project unique is the focus on the fans. Photographer Kim Jay and Craig Shutko from Victoria, BC test-drove the idea this past summer and you can see some of the results here. If you want to give them a hand in documenting the world of festivals from the fans, head over to their fundraising campaign.

Here’s their planned schedule:
Envision Festival – Uvita, Costa Rica, Feb 26th-Mar 1st, 2015
Sasquatch Music Festival – The Gorge, WA, USA, May 23rd-25th, 2015
Tall Tree Music Festival – Port Renfew, BC, Canada, June 26th-28th, 2015
Bass Coast- Merrit, BC, Canada, July 10th-13th, 2015
