Indie A-listers in a country oasis at End of the Road Festival

Larmer Tree Gardens, North Dorset

The intimate surroundings of the End of the Road Festival give you the chance to get up close and personal with the bands and their music.

There can’t be many festivals where peacocks and parrots wander around in-between the wellies. End of The Road prides itself on this kind of small-scale intimacy and, here, you won’t need to worry that your weekend’s going to be ruined by hyped-up headliners or overpriced, undercooked burgers.

Instead there may be an impromptu set from Josh T Pearson beside the piano in the woods or Ryan Adams may decide he wants to take up the drum sticks and play with Jolie Holland. Small though this festival might be, it still packs a punch with circus skills workshops, an arts and crafts grotto, comedy tent and good quality organic food.

End of the Road Festival takes place from 31 August to 3 September.
