around the site

Started in 2006, the organisers aim is to "organise an intimate festival with our favourite artists, and to offer the bands an opportunity to play longer sets, compared to most other festivals." As the programming is done by the organisers who book acts they like, the line-up on offer is far more interesting than many other festivals. The dates for 2010 are confirmed as Friday 10th to Sunday 12th September.

Tipi tent

The festival will be increasing the size of the Tipi Tent, which will now be a circular tent of Tipis which are joined together, creating more viewing area, while keeping that magical intimate feel.

The Local venue

As 'The Local' booked such popular bands for their stage last year, The End of the Road has also decided to increase the size of their venue and give them their own mini Big Top.


The festival will also have an increased program of workshops for both children and adults, with sessions that carry on longer into the evening.

The Larmer Tree Gardens is about 2.5-3 hours drive from London, and falls on the border between North Dorset and Wiltshire, fairly close to Stonehenge. It's a beautiful venue with gorgeous views and with peacocks and huge parrots roaming / flying around freely both inside the gardens and in the field. The festival will be open on Friday 11th September 2010, from 10am until Monday 14th September at 12 midday.

More information will be here when available.
