The battle between Green Man and End of the Road for the best americana festival vibe this year continues as Uncut report: “Bill Callahan has been announced as the final headliner for this year’s End Of The Road Festival. Other new additions to the bill include Slowdive, Japandroids and Pond. They join Father John Misty, Mac DeMarco, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Lucinda Williams, Band Of Horses, Amadou & Mariam, Ty Segall, Real Estate, Parquet Courts and more at the festival, which runs from August 31 – September 3 at its usual home, Larmer Tree Gardens in south Wiltshire, England.” In the meantime the Shins and Lambchop have been added to the Green Man line-up. If you have just £200 to spare it could be a life-changing decision (if one of the acts you consequently see changes your life).
