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.
They also pride themselves with providing quality food and drinks, including a good selection of local ales. The dates for 2015 are confirmed as Friday 4th to Sunday 6th September.
Saturday night will be Stevens' only festival show of 2015 - it'll also be his first time performing at any UK festival (and only his second anywhere). Tame Impala headline Friday, and Sunday The War On Drugs make their only summer UK festival appearance of 2015.
