A New Festival from End of the Road: No Direction Home

Festival Crowd Header
No Direction Home Festival

The team behind End of the Road is launching a new festival! No Direction Home will make its first outing from 8 – 10 June 2012, at Welbeck Abbey in the northern reaches of Sherwood Forest.

It is the first time that this historic and beautiful setting, first mentioned as far back as the Domesday Book, will play host to a festival. A main stage is to be built by a lake with views of the ancient abbey and there will be music, merriment and new twists on everything you’d expect from the End of the Road team including a carefully crafted programme of film, literature, workshops and comedy.
 
The festival is today pleased to announce the first batch of confirmed artists are Andrew Bird, Beth Jeans Houghton & the Hooves of Destiny (pictured), David Thomas Broughton, Diagrams, Dirty Three, Django Django, Gruff Rhys, Lanterns on the Lake, Liz Green, The Low Anthem, Martin Carthy, Martin Simpson, Moon Duo, Slow Club, Spectrals, The Unthanks with Brighouse & Rastrick Brass band and Veronica Falls.
 
More details will be released soon, but the festival has warned that 25% of the tickets have been sold since the mere existence of the festival was first revealed by way of a handpainted sign near the cider bus at End of the Road 2011.
 
A website for the festival is now live at No Direction Home Festival
