    2019 Predictions

    But despite EOTR evolving from it's rather narrow musical remit of the early days, those "alt-country" behemoths of yesteryear are still VERY much "End of the Road material". Just look at the headline slots Bill Callahan and Jeff Tweedy have played in the past couple of years. I can certainly see him still having a place on the bill and I, for one, would be very happy with that.

    Yes he is, he headlined the very first one.

    Ryan Adams is ALWAYS releasing new albums! But yeah, stick me down for him, SK, GBV, Sharon Van Etten and Courtney Barnett.

    Think she's very likely and I would love it. She was great at APE earlier in the year

    If we're taking Simon's listening habits as clues to next years bookings, that Kikagaku Moyo lot he was listening to a month ago would go down a treat.

    Yeah, there was definitely some flag stuff going down in 2015.

    Low headlined the Garden Stage in 2015 and it was, indeed, amazing. They were a surprising booking following a rather uncomfortable performance in 2008, when Alan launched his guitar into the crowd. Do not want them in the Big Top

    All Points East Festival 2019

    Bearing in mind I've seen Jarvis this year, trying out new solo material, I'll be very surprised if another Pulp reunion is on the cards.

    All Points East Festival 2019

    Also worth remembering that last year was the first year of APE. There were, quite understandably, a lot of reservations about how well the festival would be run due to the history of other events at Victoria Park. Maybe that put people off buying tickets. Having seen the success of last year, maybe this year will sell considerably better.

    Festivals in films

    The festival scenes in Tamara Drewe were filmed at End of the Road. I was there and gutted to have not run into Gemma Arteton

    Not sure Built To Spill are bigger enough to headline this, but I would love it if they did

    I think that by keeping with the high numbers of female acts on the EOTR bill, we'll probably be looking at a Woods headliner of at least one of: Angel Olsen Courtney Barnett Sharon Van Etten Possibly PJ Harvey or maybe Sleater Kinney? These are all on the assumption that some recent bookings are out (St Vincent, Joanna Newsom, Cat Power, Feist) and some are probably too "pop". Neko Case and/or Jenny Lewis subbing or headlining Garden. Really want Will Oldham and the return of Okkervil River. I'd love Hop Along to play, The Decemberists would always be welcome. Obviously Nick Cave is the dream, but think he's far too big for EOTR.
