Music festival of the week: End of the Road Festival, Larmer Tree Gardens, Dorset

 

Between the lush setting and the bespoke alterna-heroes line-up, this boutique bash remains untouched by corporate hands.

The line-up bursts with intelli-pop pleasures: David Byrne and St Vincent bring their pairing out to play; Sigur Rós offer seismic sounds and spectacle; and post-punk harmonists Warpaint stage a return.

And, in the finest festival spirit, there's plenty to discover off-piste: venture out into the fairy light-festooned gardens for the full experience, where the variously gorgeous likes of Night Beds, Daughn Gibson, John Murry, William Tyler and Julianna Barwick await.
