This Is Hardcore Fest 2012 just kicked off Day 2 as we leave the Union Transfer behind and start a three-day stretch at Philadelphia’s legendary Electric Factory. A little rain early in the day didn’t dampen spirits as thousands gathered outside the gates anxiously awaiting entrance where scores of venders, bands, distros, and record labels laid out massive displays. Our initial converge will continue with candid crowd shots and backstage footage of the bands kickin’ it. Our massive, high-quality, on-stage band galleries will debut after This Is Hardcore Fest concludes on Sunday. Our incredibly talented photographer, Anne Spina, will be breaking off huge band galleries taken from the stage next week! Until then, keep enjoying these candid shots of all of the festivities!
Today’s line-up includes:
Enjoy PT I photos of Day 2 by Dante Torrieri, Bora Chung, and Joshua T. Cohen. We also included a few shots from our friend Paul C. Imburgia who arrived very early in the day and was kind enough to toss us some of his shots.
