The story of End of the Road festival 2017

In glorious technicolor photography

We’ve just got back from Dorset, somehow muddy, dehydrated and sunburnt. It was the 12th edition of End of the Road festival. The big review is to come in the next issue of the magazine, but across the weekend, our writers were covering the standout moments. Like Moonlandingz/Slowdive‘s opening night combo, Radio 3 bringing its Late Night Junction programme to the festival for the first time, Father John Misty toning down his histrionics – maybe in a bid to be more liked for his first ever festival headline show, HMLTD’s divisive glam-rock-disco outing and King Khan and the Shrines’ arse-less leotard. All weekend, Loud And Quiet photographer Timothy Cochrane was shooting away. See it all below.

And thanks to all of those who came to see what we were up to there: our live recording with Nadine Shah for our Midnight Chats podcast (episode out soon), our drunk DJ set dressed as priests and our talk on zines with a few friends of ours.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
