End Of The Road Festival have added new names to its incredible 2023 lineup, with a particular emphasis on alternative and experimental artists. Final Tier tickets are available at the festival website – be quick as they won’t last long.
Topping today’s announcement bill is Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist and activist Fatoumata Diawara who will perform at the Lamer Tree Gardens site for the first time. The Malian superstar has long welcomed modernity as well as tradition, fusing left-field rock into the pentatonic melodies and lush raspy tones of Bambara music. Long-time collaborators and intoxicating experimentalists Panda Bear & Sonic Boom will perform a mind-bending set whilst Irish post-punk group The Murder Capital will follow up their well received new album and Californian jangle-pop revivalists Allah-Las bring their trademark nostalgic, hazy summer vibes to End Of The Road. The groove-inducing Ghent-based duo Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul also join the lineup, beckoning you to the dancefloor with their thought-provoking and playful electropop.
Continuing the festival’s lineage of alternative female artists, American outfit Deerhoof, fronted by the incredible Japanese singer Satomi Matsuzuki will bring their sugary, punkish experimentalism to the lineup, alongside your new favourite angsty cult artist Samia with raw, and hook-ridden indie pop.
End Of The Road has become synonymous with a truly exciting electronic music programme and 2023 is no different. Fans of rousing vocals and propulsive beats will be in heaven with Colombian-born Ela Minus who is bringing her incredible live set to the festival. Welsh vocalist, producer and DJ Elkka adds to the phenomenal range of electronic music, alongside eclectic producer, vocalist and mover of bodies Marie Davidson – both DJ sets that are not to be missed. BBC Radio 6’s Tom Ravenscroft will also be bringing his electric DJ set to the festival.
Adventurous listeners know there’s no better place than End Of The Road, and there are more new names really pushing the envelope this year. Hailed as ‘classical’s new queen of weird’, Héloïse Werner will join forces with Colin Alexander for what is sure to be an unforgettable performance of virtuosic works for voice and cello. Former National Youth Poet Laureate Kara Jackson will be performing her low and tender folk, whilst experimental NYC group 75 Dollar Bill will bring shamanic drones and fuzzed-out guitar.
Masterminded by Drugdealer’s Ben Schwab, SYLVIE‘s sepia-tinged ethereal folk rock will also be a show not to be missed. Known for his incredible live sets, Sessa guarantees enigmatic and visceral Brazilian pop music, Australian duo Royel Otis will grace festival-goers with their endlessly catchy indie-pop. Not only this, but garage rocker and Vermont eccentric King Tuff joins the bill, alongside Cardiff-born polymath H. Hawkline and art punk Londoners HMLTD.
