Regular readers of the mag may have gathered this already but we love End of the Road Festival. Hell, we’d even go as far as saying it’s our all time favourite festival. Inspired by Green Man it has a similar vibe but is less than half the size and attracts some of the best indie folk and Americana from across the world. This year the wonderful organisers have secure Midlake (the Texan group’s only UK festival performance), labelmate John Grant, the elfin-esque Joanna Newsom, Beirut, Mogwai, Laura Marling, The Walkmen, Gruff Rhys, Joan As Policewoman, Josh T Pearson, Wild Beasts, The Fall, Lykke Li, Best Coast, James Yorkston, Caitlin Rose, The Leisure Society…the list goes on. They also have the piano in the woods, where you can catch some secret spontaneous sets by some of the acts and the highly coveted disco in the woods – complete with flashing dance floor. And as if that wasn’t enough they welcome back the Somerset Cider Bus. Hot and Spicy cider all round! End of the Road Festival takes place at the Larmer Tree Gardens on the Dorset/Wiltshire border on September 2-4. Tickets cost £145 from www.endoftheroadfestival.com
