The End Of The Road festival in Dorset has revealed Pixies, Fleet Foxes and Khruangbin headline as it completes its line-up announcement.
End Of The Road festival lit up Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire last year with its array of music, comedy and literary artists and it’s back for another round this September with a truly impressive line-up. It was previously announced that 90s alt-rock kings Pixies would be headlining the festival, but they’ve now been joined by headliners such as Conor Oberst’s sad-indie vehicle Bright Eyes, indie staple Fleet Foxes, and funky psych-rock outfit Khruangbin.
Some of the other prestigious acts lighting up the Gardens will include Aldous Harding, The Magnetic Fields, Perfume Genius, Tinariwen, Kevin Morby, Kurt Vile & The Violators, black midi and The Weather Station. That’s quite the festival playlist.
The festival will be keeping up its popular jazz strand with the inclusion of Emma-Jean Thackeray, Alabaster dePlume and Nala Sinephro amongst others. It’ll also be setting its tastemaker credentials with the likes of Dehd, BingoFury and NewDad, mixing up the nostalgic headliners with some cutting-edge new blood.
Co-founder Simon Taffe says, “I’m beyond excited about our 2022 lineup, which features artists we’ve been asking to play since 2006 and includes some of the greatest songwriters of all time in my opinion. It really feels like this is the summer all festivals have been waiting for, a summer three years in the making for some. We have all been through a lot together and it feels good to be back, and to finally be able to dance with friends and artists from all over the world again.”
End Of The Road 2022 will take place from September 1-4 in Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset & Wiltshire. Tickets are still on sale in a limited capacity, and you can grab them here.
