End Of The Road 2020 postponed – but look at the lineup they’ve already got for 2021

All tickets remain valid for 2nd-5th September 2021 as Pixies, King Krule, Big Thief and more confirm they'll be there next year

In sad but inevitable news, another of our favourite festivals has succumbed to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. End Of The Road 2020 will now no longer take place, but here’s the good news: several of the heavy hitters that were due to perform at Larmer Tree Gardens in September have already confirmed they’ll be appearing next year instead.

Headliners King Krule, Pixies and Big Thief are all booked for 2021, as well as other L&Q favourites including Little Simz, Bright Eyes and Aldous Harding.

All tickets for this year will be valid for 2021. Full refunds are available, although the festival are encouraging those fans who are in a position to retain their tickets to please do so. Grassroots culture is in an incredibly precarious position right now, as we well know; it’s vital that we help out totally independent institutions like EOTR where we can. Let the thought of a drunken singalong to ‘Debaser’ in a sunlit Dorset field be your guide.

Help keep Loud And Quiet going

As an independent title, it’s become harder than ever to make the numbers add up.

We never want to charge artists and labels for our content so are asking our readers and listeners if they can help.

If you enjoy L&Q, please consider signing up to one of our membership plans to receive our magazines, playlists, podcasts, full site access, record discounts and more. Pay per month to try it out and see how you feel.
