I decided to research venues that would be suitable for my band to play. It has to be an outdoorsy, folksy sort of festival that was very laid back and intimate. I then came across the End of the Road festival in Dorset, ran by Simon and his friend Sofia, the kind of festival they set out to create was one where:
- You won't get all the over hyped bands headlining
- Most bands play longer sets than usual
- You can eat a range of quality food
- You can drink a range of quality beers
- The staff and security care about everyone and show respect
- The crowd will be there for the MUSIC
- We take pride in being an independent festival.
The idea with the End of the Road Festival was to organise an intimate festival with our favourite artists and to create a festival with a friendly and relaxed feel.
Here is the header to the festival's website, I like the natural and vintage feel from abstract imagery of the peacock/ gramophone.
This is the video of how the venue is put together, and all the work it takes, its sped up to show the passing of time.
I also looked at the reviews of this festival:
★★★★★ The Independent, ★★★★ The Guardian, ★★★★ The Times
Simply one of the most magical, inspiring and intimate festivals of the summer."
“Spark and colour were everywhere. The little touches made this tiny festival glorious.”
