Babak Ganjei: Fat White Family (detail)

Work / Illustration

Artist illustrates every single act on east London festival line-up

Seems you can’t move for a festival these days: it’s “racially-insensitive headwear” this, “Hunter wellies” that, “glamping” the other. But it’s not all fields and whimsical, dopey skirts. Festivals are now out of the countryside and into the cities, and they’ve got heaving line-ups to boot – something illustrator Babak Ganjei knows only too well, having been tasked to draw every single act playing this year’s Visions festival. The one-day east London-based event takes place early next month, and as showcased in Babak’s sweet doodlings, will see the likes of Fat White Family (you know, the naked, mashed-up ones), Camera Obscura (you know, the twee ones with the hovercraft) and Swedish crooner Jens Lekman taking to Hackney.
