The End Festival

The End Festival

London’s The End Festival kicks off later this week boasting 9 days of events across 9 venues.

With around 26 artists, the independent festival founded by Howard Monk has gained a stellar reputation for its ethos, diversity and high calibre musicians.

Eight years ago, Monk started The End as a two-venue event in Crouch End, where he used to live. Over time, the festival grew and in 2017, it’s bigger than ever before with a view to expand beyond London’s boundaries.

“I’d like to expand beyond, maybe twinning with a different town year on year,” says Monk. “I’d definitely like go to places, which might have a somewhat tainted view of the “elitist” music/arts scene.”

The line-up also sees Scottish artists taking part. RM Hubbert and The Van T’s will be performing and Song By Toad roster stalwart, David Thomas Broughton will be playing 3 shows.

One of the most notable events of the festival is Fearless. Author Jeanette Leech‘s book about the making of post-rock is the nucleus around which this show has been built around. Leech will be in conversation and an impressive list of acts will perform on the day.  Black PeachesRe-TROS, RM Hubbert, Billy MahonieRighthand_LefthandIlkLand ObservationsKOMPROMAT, Tolerance ManoeuvreDavid Callaghan (MOONSHAKE//WOLFHOUNDS) and False Hope For The Savage will all be live.
