End Of The Road Festival denies link to the Church Of Scientology

Organisers say that though two of the festival's staff are Scientologists, there is no official link

The organisers of End Of The Road Festival have denied that the festival has an official link with the Church Of Scientology.

The festival, which will take place at Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire on August 31 – September 2 in 2012 and will be headlined by Grizzly Bear and Tindersticks, has issued a statement which admits that though two of its directors are members of the Church Of Scientology, the festival itself has no formal link with the organisation.

They told the Guardian: “There have been suggestions on forums that End of the Road Festival may have some connection to the Church of Scientology. This arose after the eFestivals founder was sent an anonymous letter. It’s quite likely that the same person sent similar letters to the music and general press. Two of the directors are scientologists. The remaining directors and management are not.”

It continues: “End of the Road has no connection with the Church of Scientology, financial or otherwise. None. In any case, philosophical inclinations are personal and have nothing to do with a music festival. Anyone who has been to an End of the Road Festival will already know that.”

The Antlers, Outfit, First Aid Kit and Moulettes are also among the acts who are set to appear at the festival this summer. For more information about the event, visit Endoftheroadfestival.com.
