END OF THE ROAD – Larmer Tree Gardens Dorset 2nd-5th September 2021

End of the Road

In case you haven’t heard, End of the Road 2021 has now officially SOLD OUT! Those of you lucky to bag a ticket are in for an unforgettable weekend, those of you that missed on tickets or are looking to shift any spares, fret not … we have once again partnered with face value or less ticket resale platform Twickets which will be open for resales late Spring/Early Summer.

Twickets are our ONLY official reseller, so please do not use other platforms like Viagogo, Eventbrite or Stubhub as your tickets will not be valid. We try to delete and report every scammer operating on our Facebook page but some might escape through the cracks, so please be aware – do not buy directly through social media platforms. Better to be safe than sorry, pals.

If you’ve bought a deposit ticket, whether you got it in 2020 or 2021, make sure you pay the remaining balance before 5 May 2021, otherwise, your deposit will be forfeit and your ticket will be lost. It’s a Wednesday, and you’ll have until midnight. Go on, put it in your diary.

We still have a few Caravan places left, so if you’re keen on bringing everything plus the kitchen sink, make sure you grab a spot before they’re all gone. (Please note, these do not give access to the festival itself)

Now, in case you bagged your ticket back in early 2020 (or late 2019 for all you sweet early birds) and need a bit of a refresher, here’s a quick reminder of what’s in store for 2021:

First up, we’ll be welcoming masters of loud-quiet-loud Pixies; King Krule with his endlessly inventive sounds and also Big Thief who are back, this time to top the bill after having made quite an impact with their transcendental Garden Stage set in 2018.

Bright Eyes will appear at End of the Road for the very first time plus the incomparable New Zealand songwriter Aldous Harding has also confirmed her return. UK rap pioneer Little Simz leads the charge of this year’s talented wordsmiths, drawing from jazz, funk and punk to soundtrack her dexterous flow.

Aussie five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are set to rip up the fields of Dorset again with ridiculously catchy guitar pop, and from the other side of the Atlantic, we have Anteloper, a duo of psychedelic sonic compatriots formed by trumpeter Jaimie Branch and drummer Jason Nazary. From the West Coast, tUnE-yArDs bring an enviable array of percussion instruments, strong soulful vocals and endless loops.

Joining Songhoy Blues from Mali, will be the creative force that is Les Amazones d’Afrique plus the groundbreaking Les Filles de Illighadad, whose lead vocalist Fatou Seidi Ghali is one of the only Tuareg female guitarists in Niger. All female seven piece Star Feminine Band hail from Benin and play a lucky dip of cross-African styles, highlife perhaps the most prominent, with pop energy and rock sinew. Oh, and they have three drummers.

Plus Squid, Whitney, Arlo Parks, Julianna Barwick, and many more. You can catch your breath now.

Days are getting longer, Spring is just around the corner and we’re starting the countdown to September. It’s still a little way to go but after 18 months of waiting, we can do 6 more right?
