Where the magic happens
Within the gently sloping hills of North Dorset and South Wiltshire you'll find the Victorian built Larmer Tree Gardens which plays host to End of the Road. The lush evergreens, fiery autumn shrubs and free-roaming peacocks paint a picturesque landscape; you would probably want to get married here.
This outdoor stage is the largest at End of the Road festival, and is often but not always (and definitely not exclusively) where our main headliners will be found playing. Full details on which bands will be playing on which stages will be released nearer the time of the festival, so do please check back later.
A clearing in the trees provides a beautiful and intimate setting for this much loved outdoor stage. Whether it's melancholic folk or one-man-band blues, we try to program the order of the bands according to when we would like to see them. Full details on which bands will be playing on which stages will be released nearer the time of the festival.
The largest of our indoor areas and it's where you'll find many of the louder bands on the line up. After the bands stop playing the DJs take over, often playing rock and roll, soul, indie and pop classics. Details of which bands and DJs will be performing at the Big Top will be released nearer the time of the festival so do check back.
The Tipi Tent area is made up of several smaller tents where you can lounge around on hay bales and one larger one where the live music takes place. What more could you want? If the answer is a roaring fire outside, a converted bus filled with hot cider or both then this could be where you'll be spending a lot of time. Details on the bands here to be announced.

The End of the Road Cinema provides a sublime getaway from the music, in previous years we have screened a diverse range of films such as Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Shining, Metropolis, The Cat Returns, The Devils, 13 Assasins, The Iron Giant, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and many more. Do check back nearer the time for next year's films and timings.
The Woodland Library will be open for business as usual, packed full of wonderful books for you to browse and check out for return at next year’s festival.
For adults there will be a morning Qi Gong session to stretch out those aching limbs from a night under canvas followed by a drum circle
