Dates: 1st – 4th September 2016
Location: Larmer Tree Gardens
One of our favourite summer festivals, End of the Road, had made another line up announcement featuring more debut performances and festival exclusives. Portland legends The Shins will play their first UK show in over four years and their 2016 UK festival exclusive. With a new album potentially in the pipeline, James Mercer and his band of merry melancholy men will also be joining Larmer Tree Gardens for the first time. Another End of the Road debutant will be Bat for Lashes.
Further additions to the line up include Faris Badwan and Rachel Zeffira’s orchestral pop side project Cat’s Eyes, whose anticipated new album is due next month. More new talent has also been added in the shape of Virginia based singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus whose debut album No Burden is already one of the year’s most acclaimed, as well as some-time Angel Olsen backing band members LionLimb with their baroque pop ballads.
Playing her only UK festival since the release of Divers, the dazzlingly talented Joanna Newsom will headline End of The Road with her harp-led sonic odyssey. Joining Joanna as headliner and making their first ever appearance at End of The Road will be the genre-hopping, experimental vocal harmonising one-offs Animal Collective.
