Whitney find time for a secret session at End of the Road Festival

02 September 2016, 14:53 | Written by Merle Jobst

If you'd walked past a certain leafy corner of End of the Road Festival this afternoon – one tucked away behind an impromptu songwriting group, a kids' storytelling grotto, and a creative noise tent, between trees and under multicoloured bunting – you'd have possibly heard some soft trumpet floating from a gap in the trees.

Follow the path and that sound and you'd have found Whitney, the much-buzzed young indie group from Chicago, gathered on a tiny path, performing a Best Fit session.

The band members were standing around singer-percussionist Julian, who sat sitting cross-legged on the earth, and together played a soft acoustic version of "No Woman", the lead track from their lauded self-titled debut album, under branches and deep green leaves of the forest.

The session took place a couple of hours ahead of the band's highly anticipated main set at the Big Top stage of the festival.

End of the Road Festival continues tonight with headline sets from Animal Collective and Cat Power.
