Festival News : First EOTR 2012 announcement

My favourite ever little festival, which to be honest is not all that little anymore, have confirmed their first headliner for the 2012 event. End of the Road have also confirmed three UK festival exclusives which is pretty darn exciting too!

The festival has such a loyal following that early bird tickets sold out within days of the 2011 edition which proudly (as in peacock) boasted the likes of Joanna Newsom, Mogwai, Beirut, Best Coast, Okkervil River, tUnE-yArDs on the bill.

This year will see a special onus on Bella Union as the famous indie record label celebrates 15 wonderful years of business.

The first acts confirmed this morning at 10.30 were :

Grizzly Bear




Beach House


The Antlers


Doug Paisley


Also confirmed :

Delicate Steve
Driver Drive Faster
First Aid Kit
Frank Fairfield
I Break Horses
Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard
Justin Townes Earle
Mountain Man
Richard Buckner
Robert Ellis
Robyn Hitchcock
Sleep Party People
Stranded Horse
The Strange Boys

- End of the Road takes place in Larmer Tree Gardens from August 31st-September 2nd, 2012

*An announcement for EOTR's new sister festival, No Direction Home, will be made next week so stay tuned!
