“We have been huge fans of Patti Smith's work for many years and to have her finally play our festival is frankly surreal and a real honour,” said the festival’s directors. “There are few musicians whose names alone can evoke such a vast array of images, sounds and stories as Patti Smith's”.
This year’s lineup is led by Grizzly Bear, Grandaddy, Midlake, Beach House, Tindersticks and Dirty Three, plus Mark Lanegan Band, Van Dyke Parks, The Low Anthem and Graham Coxon. Comedy includes Joe Lycett, Doc Brown, Liam Mullone and Robin Ince.
Winner of Best Small Festival at the 2011 UK Festival Awards, End of the Road is an intimate festival in a peacock-strewn former Victorian pleasure garden offering an amazing music lineup plus art, atmosphere, workshops, comedy, cinema, a woodland library, games, a healing field and the finest food and drinks.
