Vampire Weekend announce first UK festival date in over four years

The New Yorkers will take on End Of The Road 2018, which will also see headline performances from Feist, St Vincent and Yo La Tengo

Vampire Weekend have announced their first UK festival date in over four years, with the band confirmed to be headlining End Of The Road 2018 – check out the festival’s line-up below.

The New York band were last seen on these shores in August 2014 when they played at Reading & Leeds, and have only played a handful of gigs since those shows.

That hiatus will soon end, however, with Vampire Weekend set to headline End Of The Road 2018 in what will be their only UK festival appearance this year. The announcement also adds to the speculation that the band are currently gearing up to release new music.


The line-up for the Larmer Tree Gardens-located festival has also confirmed Feist, St Vincent and Yo La Tengo (who will play on the Thursday) as headliners – check out a trailer for End Of the Road 2018 below.

As well as the headliners, the likes of Julia Holter, Ezra Furman and John Cale will also appear at the festival – check out the list of confirmed acts for End Of The Road 2018 so far below.
