End of the Road Festival sells out (and there goes your chance to see The Shins' first show in ages)

29 August 2016, 13:00 | Written by Paul Bridgewater

End of the Road Festival has sold out, organisers have confirmed, days before the event is due to kick off.

The annual Dorset based event counts The Shins, Joanna Newsom, Bat for Lashes and more amongst its headliners this year.

Other highlights include a pre-release listening party for WIlco's new record Schmilco (we've heard it and it's the best thing they've done since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or A Ghost is Born depending on which Best Fit staffer you talk to) and Adam Buxton who will be recording an episode of his amazing and very funny podcast.

Best Fit will be in attendance again organising secret shows and happenings. Previous years have seen St. Vincent stepping out for a last minute Q&A, duets between Laura Marling and Marika Hackman, and forest performances from Nadine Shah, Money, East India Youth, Frightened Rabbit and Okkervill River. This year we have an amazing list of names lined up to perform some extra and very special sets.

We'll also be running Saturday night in the Big Top with another secret and absolutely massive headline name set to perform.
