Artists & Bands

September 2015 will see the 10th End of the Road Festival and once again we will be championing new and unsigned talent at the festival.

We’ve always supported new, unsigned acts and our 10th year will be no different. Although, this year one of the selected artists will open one of the Major Stages (Woods, Garden, Big Top) and one will feature on Rough Trade’s End Of The Road 2015 CD. If you are chosen as the act to open one of the Major Stages you will still be eligible for the Rough Trade compilation feature, (and vice versa) – the two opportunities aren’t mutually exclusive but they won’t necessarily go to the same act.
