An End of the Road festival 2018 news bonanza! And your chance to win a pair of tickets

Opening party! Live recorded podcast! Big Top takeover! Would you like to come?

Not long now until End of the Road 2018. It all begins on Thursday 30 August at Larmer Tree Gardens, Dorset.

We’re excited to be working with the festival again this year. Genuinely. We’re going to be there doing things. And it’s time to reveal those things. Here’s a run-down of where you’ll find us over the weekend.

THURSDAY 30st AUGUST:
11pm at the Tipi Stage: Time-hop Silent Disco Opening Party

What this festival needs to get going is a Silent Disco where channel 1 exclusively plays music released in 1998 and channel 2 only plays music from January 2018 onwards. There is no reason for this concept, but we’re doing it.

FRIDAY 31st AUGUST:
Loud And Quiet presents The Big Top stage

Yeah, just check out that line-up.

Protomartyr
The Orielles
Lost Horizons
Tirzah
Amyl and the Sniffers
Nilüfer Yanya
Creatures
Penelope Isles

SATURDAY 1st SEPTEMBER:
12pm at the Piano Stage: Live recording of our Midnight Chats podcast, with Josh T. Pearson

We transport our Midnight Chats interview podcast series into daylight hours for a one-off episode recorded live on stage. Fresh from his solo appearance at the festival, come check out the Texan supremo and Lift To Experience frontman in conversation. Bless y’all.

COMPETITION TIME

Now, we know what you’re thinking. How the hell can I get in on this? You can buy a ticket (they’re running low). But, you can also enter this competition. We keep it straightforward. Answer this simple question and you’ll be put into a draw to win a pair of weekend tickets.

Precisely how to enter:

Create a new email to info@loudandquiet.com, put EOTR COMPETITION 2018 in the subject line and send us your name, where you’re from and whether you give us permission to put you on our newsletter list (a simple YES or NO. No hard feelings either way, although we don’t spam you – it only gets sent once in a while and tells you about our new magazines, podcasts etc). Also, include the answer to the following question.

Which of these is a song by End of the Road headliner Vampire Weekend?

– Oxford Comma
– Kensington Full Stop
– Winchester Quote Marks

The competition runs until midnight on Monday 6 August, and with any luck you’ll be joining us, watching St. Vincent, Fat White Family, Feist, Yo La Tengo and loads of others.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
