Uprising Festival Rochdale 2019 Photo Blog

We were asked by Nomad Clan to run the Pop Up Gallery at last months Uprising Festival in Rochdale and of course we jumped at the chance. Setting up shop in the old Butterworth brothers jewellers on Drake St we were in prime position to watch the festival unfold.

Some of the below photographs have been featured on our Instagram / Facebook accounts but a lot haven't so I'm hoping you will enjoy taking a look back at what was an exciting week!

Saturday the 17th of August and early wall prep for Nomad Clan.
