End Of The Road festival returns for a second year hot from winning ‘Best New Festival 2006’. The 5000-capacity event is set in the stunning Larmer Tree Gardens on the Dorset border.

The 3-day weekender gets bands involved in workshops and DJ sets as well as their own sets. And you won’t see big brands at this corporate-free event as the organisers make a conscious decision to keep ‘creative freedom’.

There’s an emphasis on all the ‘little things’ that make a great festival at the corporate-free event. Good food (organic, local, fair trade etc), quality beer, recycling and environmental initiatives, and even ‘caring and well-mannered staff’!

There will also be a Scandinavian twist with some of the acts hailing from Northern Europe and loads of Scandinavian stuff going on, such as Viking games and Swedish food!
