Laura Marling, Mac DeMarco, Low and more added to 2015 line-up

(3 years ago)

We are thrilled to add Laura Marling to this year’s already outstanding line up. Having just released her fifth album Short Movie to universal acclaim, Laura returns to the festival for the third time.

Salad Days man Mac DeMarco also joins the bill, bringing his “Jizz-Jazz” groove to Larmer Tree Gardens whilst Minnesota indie legends Low will be bringing 10 studio album’s worth of ‘slowcore’ anthems to hypnotise your mind.

Toronto’s hardcore trio Metz are set to cut through the weekend’s tranquillity with their sludge punk, Sheffield duo Slow Club are poised to inject some pop into proceedings, whilst Illinois native Ryley Walker will have you mesmerised with his guitar picking skills.

Each year, EOTR gives new and/or unsigned artists the chance to perform at the festival. This year they received over 2000 applications and have chosen three new acts from an incredibly talented pool of submissions:

Opening the Woods stage will be the exuberant, Paul Russell led, orchestral ensemble Human Pyramids. Glaswegian lo-fi electro-pop duo Miracle Strip will feature on the forthcoming End of The Road x Rough Trade Shops compilation. London garage-pop purveyors LOVE L.U.V have been invited to join the 10 year celebrations too, bringing with them a combination of 60s era Beatles pop and raw, raucous energy.

Following glowing reviews for 2014’s exceptional festival (including 5/5 from both The Guardian and The Independent and a whopping 10/10 from the NME), End of the Road Festival revealed its 10th anniversary headliners for 2015 earlier this year. Sufjan Stevens will perform his only European festival this year on Saturday night, following Australia’s psychedelic victors Tame Impala on Friday. Sunday night will see the critics’ album of 2014 holders The War On Drugs play their only summer festival in the UK this year.
