    Fri 10 Sep – End Of The Road Festival
    Year Three for me at the Fifth year of End of the Road and yet again I wasn't let down.

    The addition of an extra night was inspired (albeit you suffered for it the next morning!) and doubly wonderful with the 'secret' addition of Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan in the much, much improved Tipi Tent. The Tipi was still there and deserving of the moniker, but opening out into a much wider space made it much less squashed - event though it was rammed to capacity most days and nights purely due to the quality of the artists performing.
    Even so, loitering outside sipping mulled cider from the new position of the cider bus meant that you could still enjoy the music even if you couldn't get inside.

    The food was still top notch and playing the drums with the charming and wonderful chefs from Moorish on Sunday night was a highlight for me. As was the can't-live-without-it breakfast Kedgeree - queuing behind Steven Adams for the same breakfast…

    Fri 10 Sep – End Of The Road Festival

    Well, what can I say. Simply the best festival I have ever been to. Big shout out to the EOTR team for putting on a very well organised festival. The location and the gardens are beautiful I love the aura that surrounds the whole event. I have taken away some great memories and made a couple of friends too. Everyone I met was so nice and friendly.

    I won't go into details about the bands I watched, but for me the highlights were Wilco, Felice Brothers, Deer Tick, Caitlin Rose and Black Mountain. My favourite memory though was Sunday afternoon in front of the Garden stage drinking wine with Dylan Leblanc playing...perfect.

    Hopefully see you next year.
