‘Play End of The Road is your chance to get up on the End Of The Road stage in 2023. The process is open for everybody, so now is your chance to show us what you can do!’
Having triumphantly brought another festival season to a close, End Of The Road Festival are gearing up to make 2023 the most special yet. Today, the festival is announcing news of their competition, Play End Of The Road, an incredible opportunity for promising new artists to take the stage alongside their favourite artists at End Of The Road. The competition is open for everybody, and entries will be eligible for seven weeks from 7th December to 25th January. There are four slots available for successful applicants to perform at the stunning Larmer Tree Gardens festival site and winners will be notified in mid-March.
This year, one of the selected artists will open one of the Major Stages (Woods, Garden, Big Top) and the others will be offered a spot on any stage. One of the winners will also have the chance to get a recorded live session for The Line of Best Fit on site.
End Of The Road expand: ‘Entry will be limited to one entry per artist. We listen to every entry, so don’t worry about submitting early – just make sure you are happy with what you have submitted. We love all kinds of music, but we do ask that you take the time to look at our site, check out past line-ups and consider if your music is a good fit for the festival before submitting. Any successful applicants will be informed by mid-March. If you don’t hear from us then, unfortunately, you have not been successful on this occasion. We regret we are unable to give feedback on applications.’
Having not long closed the gates on the brilliant 16th edition of End Of The Road Festival – and with a record number of tickets already sold for 2023 – the team at End Of The Road haven’t stopped for one minute. Confirmed dates for next year will be 31st August – 3rd September with first lineup news promised for early next year.
With the biggest ever crowd in attendance, 2022’s edition of End Of The Road cemented its reputation as the “UK’s most exciting and diverse medium-sized festival” (★★★★★ The Guardian). With the late night Boat Stage hosting music for the first time this year, revellers wandered through the enchanting woods of The Effing Forest, with secret shows and beautifully crafted art installations. End of The Road continues to give festival-goers an experience like no other, and is sure to be filled with even more magic in 2023.
