End Of The Road Festival announces new names, day splits and a new stage.

Words: Karl Johnson

It’s under six weeks until the festival, the peacocks of Larmer Tree Gardens are priming their feathers and End Of The Road has announced new additions to its already stacked line up – the end of summer party is truly almost in touching distance.

Set in the rolling countryside hills of Dorset – and boasting some of the finest sunsets known to humankind last year – Pixies, Khruangbin, Fleet Foxes and Bright Eyes are set to headline, but the depth of new talent on the 4-day line up is simply astonishing.

The festival have also announced new line up additions in Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Jockstrap, Snapped Ankles, Hailu Mergia, James Holden, Wacław Zimpel and more. A new stage arrives in Effing Forest named The Boat, featuring sets by Jockstrap, Snapped Ankles, Fat Dog and many more.

Musing on the 2022 line up, festival co-founder Simon Taffe notes, “I’m beyond excited about our 2022 lineup, which features artists we’ve been asking to play since 2006 and includes some of the greatest songwriters of all time in my opinion. It really feels like this is the summer all festivals have been waiting for, a summer three years in the making for some. We have all been through a lot together and it feels good to be back, and to finally be able to dance with friends and artists from all over the world again.”
