The Larmer Tree Gardens plays host to a festival that cultivates its own unique kind of atmosphere - a place where music-loving, open minded and chilled out people get together in the beautiful countryside whilst parrots and peacocks wander around!
With the line up being handpicked by the festival organisers, who are more about the music than anything else, the entire bill is crammed with killer bookings that lean towards the atmospheric, beautiful and esoteric side of the musical spectrum.
Additionally, End of the Road takes a lot of pride in all the 'little things' that make a festival a success, such as good food (organic and local where possible), good beer, caring and well-mannered staff, good site decorations, hygiene etc.
We encourage band participation in all areas of the festival, and some acts will be invited to DJ, present workshops and many other things besides. The festival has the kind of atmosphere which encourages collaboration and 'special' events.

Disabled Access Information
End of the Road Festival is set in lovely old Victorian pleasure gardens, woodlands and a green field located on a hill. It is predominantly a greenfield site with varying gradients and little in the way of roadways or paths, and it does present challenges for wheelchair users, so we feel it is important to be open upfront!
End of the Road is a small festival, the stages, bars and stalls are positioned relatively close to one another. Wheelchairs can access most areas of the festival in good weather, however most of the ground is grass and can be uneven in places. If it rains, maneuvering a wheelchair around the site may be difficult due to mud, especially in the village area. The woodland area is partially grass but has a lot of wood chip and typical woodland floor, including tree roots.
If access through the village is difficult, there is a tarmac road that runs from the Box office up to the entrance to the gardens.
Please note that this is a longer route and if the weather is good, it is likely to be quicker to access the gardens through the village.
The comedy stage is on a steep hill in the woods, access to which is not suitable for wheelchairs or those who cannot walk a steep forest path for approximately 350m. Unfortunately, there is no other access to this area.
The festival offers a dedicated disabled camping area for both those in tents and those in live in vehicles close to the entrance to the village, please note that this area is on grass and has its own toilets and showers. Pre-booking is required.
You may park your car near your tent (pre-booked car pass required), your family and friends may also camp with you, but their cars must be in the main car park and they will have to carry their gear.
If it's easier you may want to consider ready put up tents through the boutique camping options.
There is a disabled area near to the box office. Those with a blue badge and car pass can park near their tent in the campsite, (the campsite manager will show you).
Accessible toilets are located at each of the main toilet blocks in the gardens, village, big top, tipi and also in the disabled camping areas. There is an easy access shower located at the shower block in disabled camping.
Charging for electric wheelchairs is available on request from the stewards office or box office.
The Woods stage and Garden stage has a viewing platform, other venues are small and do not have viewing areas.

The history of End Of The Road Festival
Beginning life way back in 2006, End of the Road's aim has remained to "organise an intimate festival with our favourite artists, and with a friendly and relaxed feel". With the guys in charge only booking artists and bands that they personally love, the resulting line up tends to be interesting, diverse, and downright fantastic. The festival has made a habit of inviting artists who work with the more atmospheric, post rock palate of music, one which sucks the audiences in and usually leaves them in stunned silence.
