Vampire Weekend, Feist, St Vincent and Yo La Tengo announced as headliners of End of the Road 2018

The line-up

End of the Road has once again lived up to its reputation for having the best gender balance on its bill, with the announcement that Feist and St Vincent will headline the festival in 2018. 

American singer-songwriter St Vincent, real name Annie Clark, played the Woods stage in 2013 and 2014, but Feist, the multi-Grammy award winner, will be making her debut at the festival, which takes place on the Wiltshire-Dorset border in September.

Joining them at the top of the bill are New York band Vampire Weekend, performing in what will be their only UK festival appearance of the summer, and Hoboken indie legends Yo La Teng. 

Elsewhere, Ezra Furman, the cross-dressing Chicago singer-songwriter, will be bringing his mix of garage-rock, Fifties doo-wop and retro-glam to Larmer Tree Gardens, while John Cale, the avant-garde co-founder of The Velvet Underground, and Jeff Tweedy, frontman of the US indie band Wilco, are also on the line-up.

The bill also includes south-London band Fat White Family, hotly tipped indie rockers Shame, folk singer This is the Kit and the acclaimed Brooklyn quartet Big Thief. More acts are yet to be announced.

In her 5-star review of last year's festival, The Telegraph's Cara McGoogan wrote: "End of the Road has once again shown it is comfortable with avoiding pretension. As it enters its second decade, it holds fast to the promise of once a year giving guests the chance to bask in leafy solace."

The festival will be held at Larmer Tree Gardens from August 30 to September 2. 

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £195. For more details go to:
