Summer is almost at an end, and with grey days looming, what better way to end what has been an Indian Summer, with a three-day End Of The Road Festival close to the famed Stonehenge in the U.K. beginning the 15th-17th September.
The Larmer Tree Gardens is an intimate setting between North Dorset and Wiltshire, and is a mere two and a half hour journey from the heart of London. The feel-good setting, which also includes an ‘open mic’ tent (where anyone can sing, rap, recite poetry, basically a free-for-all), features feel-good bands and musicians such as headliners Badly Drawn Boy and Ryan Adams, while other top acts include Electric Soft Parade, Josh Ritter and Ed Harcourt.
The remaining acts are made up of Americana-music, with additional break-through acts such as British Sea Power and Boy Omega taking billing over the course of the three days.
The concept for another outdoor music festival was dreamt up by Simon and Sofia, two festival organisers who joked around saying that “wouldn’t it be nice to put on our own ‘perfect’ festival with our favourite line up. It was only after having been to the lovely Green Man Festival in Wales in August 2005, that we finally thought to ourselves that we can make this happen.”
And because one of the festival organisers is from Sweden, there will be a Scandinavian feel to it with a showing of prosperous musical talent and Swedish food and drink.
The End of the Road Festival not only features some of the greatest musical talent the world has to offer, but also plays host to campsites, two stages where D.J.’s will play music until 2am, exotic gardens with roaming birds of paradise, organic food….and beer tents with only the best beer in the world.
