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.
