End of the Road festival 2018: St. Vincent, Vampire Weekend, Feist top the bill

From top to bottom, side to side, this is a great line up

End of the Road have announced the first wave of their line-up for 2018, and, well, it’s pretty damn good.

Headlining the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights of the festival – not necessarily in this order – will be St. Vincent, Vampire Weekend and Feist.

This week marks 10 years (10!) since the New York band released their self-titled debut album – and this will be their only UK festival in 2018. Same goes for Feist.

Topping the bill for the festival’s opening Thursday night on the Woods Stage will be Yo La Tengo.

Elsewhere, it’s a line-up with quality top to bottom. Just a few highlights for us include: John Cale, Jeff Tweedy, Oh Sees, Julia Holter, Aldous Harding, Big Thief, (Sandy) Alex G, Hookworms, Nilüfer Yanya, Shame, Protomartyr, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, IDLES, Du Blonde, Richard Dawson, Julien Baker and Stella Donnelly. We won’t keep on listing, the official line up poster is below, and there’s also neat a video with illustration by Kai Wong and animation by Joseph Brett.

It all takes place at Lamar Tree Gardens, Dorset on 30 August – 2 September. For more information, and tickets, visit the EOTR website.

Last year’s edition of End of the Road featured performances from the likes of Mac DeMarco, Father John Misty and Bill Callahan. You can revisit all of our coverage from 2017 – y’know, just to whet your appetite.

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 our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and 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 works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

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.
