FAULT’s exclusive backstage portrait photo gallery at Standon Calling Festival

There was a time when festivals only really meant Glastonbury or Reading, but the rise of the smaller festivals has saturated the market in the best possible way. For festival and music lovers alike, the summer period is rife with weekends away, and the festivals that once housed only local bands and a few stalls, now have global superstars and the finest culinary stands; Hertfordshire’s Standon Calling is a perfect example of this. This year’s line up saw a wide range of acts in both genre and era of prominence; from Clean Bandit and Slaves, through to Gary Numan and Orbital. It was a veritable feast of musical diversity.

Photographer and writer Robert Baggs was backstage from dawn til dusk over the duration of the festival, offering an intimate glance in to both backstage with the acts and their live performances through his collection of portraits.
