Doing it for the ‘gram – these backstage artist portraits from End Of The Road festival 2019 deserve bare likes

While you were watching Black Midi, Gazelle Twin was picking the nose of a statue

If there were an award for best looking festival then End of the Road would win year in year out. The 2019 edition at Larmer Tree Gardens was no different. Bathed in warm sunshine peacocks strutted around the ornate grounds, artists performed on the picture-frame perfect Garden Stage and more than a few people got completely lost in the enchanted woodland. While that was happening Loud And Quiet photographer Gem Harris met up with a bunch of those playing. These encounters varied in their surrealness. We learned that Gazelle Twin is happy to pose with the nearest stone cherub and that Lonnie Holley likes to take long walks to wonder out loud about the magic of Mother Earth. Thanks to Georgia, Courtney Barnett, Metronomy, Serpentwithfeet, Crack Cloud, Sons of Raphael and Nérija for also sparing the time.
