And then there were none. End of the Road 2020 has been cancelled but the same line-up will return next year for End of the Road 2021 – original tickets remain valid. End of the Road’s September placing in the year made it one of the last hold-outs to still be planning for a 2020 festival but it appears the organisers did not want to risk the uncertainty which remains around live music in any setting for the rest of the year. Their statement is below.
We were holding out hope we wouldn’t have to do this but sadly, due to Covid-19, we are postponing EOTR 2020 until 2-5 Sept 2021. We’ll miss you all terribly and we can’t wait to see you there – you’ll notice a few others have already promised they will be joining us. pic.twitter.com/9vvXNZa9Dd
