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:

THURSDAY 29 AUGUST:
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.

SATURDAY 31 AUGUST:
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
Squid
TVAM
Sweaty Palms

SUNDAY 1 SEPTEMBER:
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?

Congratulations you made it through the news, now COMPETITION TIME. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of weekend tickets to EOTR 2019, follow these instructions:

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.
