Started in 2006, the organisers' aim is to "organise an intimate festival with our favourite artists, and with a friendly and relaxed feel", and they only book artists that they personally like, which makes the line-up on offer far more interesting than many other festivals. The festival often has quiet/atmospheric acts and the audience respectfully listen in silence.

The End of the Road Festival has 4 music stages, a cinema tent, comedy, workshops (for both adults & children), a healing field, art installations, literature talks, a hidden library and piano in the woods, a games area with table tennis, skittles, table football and more.
