Liverpool photographer Mark McNulty is a prolific chap, and one of our favourite imagemakers – when he’s not snapping the city’s coolest musicians and arts people, he’s down the front at all the best gigs.

This summer’s Africa Oyé festival was the best yet, and Mark was there all weekend soaking up the ridiculously happy vibes (seriously, Glastonbury would have a hard job topping that). He’s posted up his images on his excellent photoblog – have a look at a few of our favourites below and click through to his website for many more. What a way to kick off the summer, eh?
