Check out a full line up in the Festival Guide. End of the Road tickets are going for £150 and varying prices for kids depending on age.
The End of the Road festival was developed by Simon Taffe and Sofia Hagberg, who joked about how awesome it would be to put together their “perfect” festival with all of their favorite bands. Simon Taffe runs a painting and decorating business and had never originally put together a concert or even a gig in his life. Sofia Hagberg knew how to organize events and handle public relations because she already represented several artists and handled their bookings. The longtime friends turned a joke into a dreamlike-reality and are sharing the fun with anyone who can swing it.
The End of the Road Festival dates are Aug 31 - Sep 2 in Dorset, England. Check out the Spacelab Festival Guide for more information on the End of the Road Festival and the Music Festival News page for 2012 festival updates.
