We’re delighted to reveal our stage splits of acts with you for End Of The Road Festival 2019!

Our headliners for this year’s festival will be long-time End of the Road favourites Beirut, the ever-dazzling Metronomy, the wonderful Michael Kiwanuka, and cosmic rock legends, Spiritualized. Elsewhere, we’re bringing you some of the most exciting artists working today, including cult heroes Low, Australian raconteur Courtney Barnett, national treasure Jarvis, the magnificent Mitski, and many, many more.

With yet more to come, we think 2019 is going to be a special year for us here at Larmer Tree Gardens.

The audacious and uncompromising Spiritualized will kick things off into the stratosphere on Thursday, whilst End of The Road first-timer Michael Kiwanuka takes the reins for his first ever UK festival headline show on Friday. He tops a faultless supporting cast including Baxter Dury, The Beths, Parquet Courts and Mitski as well as daring techno producer Joy Orbison, electronic music powerhouse Kelly Lee Owens and avant-garde producer and performer Yves Tumour.

Friday also sees the return of BBC Radio 3’s flagship experimental music programme Late Junction for a third time. This year the Tipi Stage welcomes Anatolian psych-pop sensation Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek, innovative harpist Mary Lattimore, Afro-Latin-electronic alchemists Penya, and UK producer Natalie Sharp debuting her new project BodyVice, featuring wearable, playable body-sculptures and interactive video combined with performance art.

Saturday is topped by globetrotting songwriter Beirut, playing just after the witty and insightful Courtney Barnett. Electronic adventurer Daniel Avery is our late night DJ at the Big Top, following a headline set from venerable punks Sleaford Mods, as well as jazz drummer Moses Boyd and pioneering experimental producer Gazelle Twin.

Metronomy will bring the Woods Stage to a close on Sunday, with strong support from Deerhunter and Cate Le Bon, and the Garden Stage is closed by longtime friend of End Of The Road and national treasure Jarvis Cocker, who will be appearing as his latest, mysterious musical creation JARV IS…. In the Big Top, guitar fans won’t be disappointed with a punk hat trick including Fontaines DCPigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs and Viagra Boys.

The Comedy Stage has evolved into the Talking Heads Stage – a multi-arts space, with a re-invented programme where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your usual stellar comedy line-up, as well as exceptional music including Angelo de Augustine, Charlie Parr and Rozi Plain, plus talks, surprise shows and much more.

In addition to all of this, throughout the four days, there will be the usual array of surprise performances, one-off collaborations and artist Q&As – presented in collaboration with The Line of Best Fit. There will be a variety of after-hours fun and dancing to be had plus Loud & Quiet’s Silent Disco opening party on Thursday night at the Tipi Stage.
