He continued: “End Of The Road is all about discovery, and I can’t wait to welcome a whole load of amazing new acts that have never played before like Biig Piiig, Flohio, Floodlights, Horse Lords, Infinity Knives & Brain Ennals, Moin, They Hate Change and a lot more!


“As always we will be doing everything we can to make it the best year yet, with plenty of surprises to come…”

Organisers said that this year’s edition of EOTR is “the fastest selling yet”, though a “very limited” number of tickets are still available. Buy them here, and head to End Of The Road’s official website for further information.

In a five-star review of End Of The Road Festival 2022, NME wrote: “It’s deeper into the forest that the festival’s most special moments occur – at the miniscule Piano Stage in a buried woodland clearing, some of the weekend’s biggest acts (including Kurt Vile and Lucy Dacus) perform quick and unannounced 15-minute acoustic shows.

“[…] In general, there’s a gentle surrealism to the End Of The Road site – where else would you look up to see a glorious golden-green parrot squawking away in the trees, or a peacock enjoying the soundchecks on a bleary Sunday morning?”
