Now in its fifth year and already established as urban75's unofficial Festival Of The Year, the Endorse-it in-Dorset music festival takes place in the Dorset countryside, not far from the tiny village of Sixpenny Handley in Cranborne Chase.
The festival started life as a birthday party in a barn, inspiring the members of the band Pronghorn to start up their own festival, growing from a one day event of 750 capacity, to a three day festival of 5000.
Delightfully free of evil corporate sponsorship - and all the other bollocks that goes with most festivals these days - we had a great time.

The festival was in full flow early evening on Friday.
