The dates are confirmed as Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th September 2021.
Started in 2006, the organisers' aim 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 main music stages, disco ship, 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, and more.
They also pride themselves with providing quality food and drinks, including a good selection of local ales as part of a beer festival.
Acts include Hot Chip, Sleaford Mods, Stereolab, Jonny Greenwood, John Grant, Tinariwen, Jane Weaver, Arab Strap, bdrmm, Little Simz, Whitney, Tune-Yards, The Comet Is Coming, Songhoy Blues, Girl Band, Field Music, Squid, Romare, Richard Dawson, Warmduscher, Andy Shauf, Anna Meredith, Les Amazones D'Afrique, Blanck Mass, and many more.
The line-up has had to be revised since it was announced in December to reflect those acts including Pixies, Bright Eyes, Aldous Harding, Perfume Genius, and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who are not now able to attend.
