The festival is held on a beautiful rural site overlooking Cranbourne Chase in Dorset, the vibe is that of an old school type of festival. The organisers know that it's tough out there. So, whilst other festivals are increasing their prices, tickets for the Endorse it in Dorset Festival 09 have been reduced to give as many people as possible the chance to enjoy a festival this year.

This year the organisers are taking Endorse it in Dorset back to its roots and back under canvass. There are still three stages filled with more bands than you can possibly see in a weekend, bars selling ales and scrumpy, side shows and entertainers, but this year promises to be an altogether more intimate affair. The extra advantage is that at Endorse it in Dorset the entertainment will be weather-proof!
