New arts festival No Direction Home at Welbeck Abbey

The team behind End of the Road is launching a new festival! No Direction Home will make its first outing from 8th to 10th June 2012, at Welbeck Abbey.

It is the first time that this historic and beautiful setting, first mentioned as far back as the Domesday Book, will play host to a festival. A main stage is to be built by a lake with views of the ancient abbey and there will be music, merriment and new twists on everything you’d expect from the End of the Road team including a carefully crafted programme of film, literature, workshops and comedy.

The festival is today pleased to announce the first batch of confirmed artists, listed here in A-Z order:

Andrew Bird

Beth Jeans Houghton & the Hooves of Destiny

David Thomas Broughton

Diagrams

Dirty Three

Django Django

Gruff Rhys

Lanterns on the Lake

Liz Green

The Low Anthem

Martin Carthy

Martin Simpson

Moon Duo

Slow Club

Spectrals

The Unthanks with Brighouse & Rastrick Brass band

Veronica Falls

More details will be released soon, but the festival has warned that 25% of the tickets have been sold since the mere existence of the festival was first revealed by way of a handpainted sign near the cider bus at End of the Road 2011.

A website for the festival is now live at http://www.nodirectionhomefestival.com
