This might be your only way into this month’s totally sold out End of the Road festival

We're giving away two tickets and some important news about us

Not sure if you heard but the tickets for End of the Road festival went rapidly this year. They were all gone by the middle of July. Not really surprising because 1) it’s consistently a brilliant weekend and 2) as we’ve already pointed out – look at that line-up! Even if the headliners aren’t your bag they’ve booked a large chunk of what’s new and interesting in UK music and beyond across their four stages. First though…

Loud And Quiet are also going to be there! And here is what we’re doing:

11pm at the Tipi Stage: Time-hop Silent Disco Opening Party

After a record number of nice comments, our silent disco returns by popular demand. Channel 1 will exclusively play music released in 1999, and Channel 2 will only play music from January 2019 onwards. That’s Smash Mouth to Black Midi. Bring dancing shoes and a £10 deposit for your headphones.

Loud And Quiet presents The Big Top stage

Yeah, just check out that line-up.

Daniel Avery
Sleaford Mods
Moses Boyd Exodus
Kero Kero Bonito
Gazelle Twin
Bilge Pump
Sweaty Palms

12pm at the Piano Stage: Live recording of our Midnight Chats podcast, with Cate Le Bon. 

Ahead of her appearance on the Woods stage, 2019 Mercury Prize nominated Cate Le Bon joins us in conversation for this one-off live episode of hit music interview podcast Midnight Chats. But it’s in the afternoon, so it’s called Midday Chats. Clever, huh?
