End of the Road points the way with No Direction Home 2012 - festival tickets on sale now
The race to organize and compile line-ups for festivals old and new continues apace with the announcement of yet another newbie on the block. This eclectic and rather left-field festival comes courtesy of those nice End of the Road people and is set to take place at beautiful Welbeck Abbey during early summer.
Situated a few miles south of Worksop, Nottinghamshire and a few miles east of Creswell, the setting for No Direction Home promises to be as scenic as it is intimate. The mood should certainly be laid back with a varied line-up of up and coming festival favourites such as Beth Jeans Houghton, Veronica Falls and Diagrams as well as experienced masters such as the two folky Martins, Simpson and Carthy and Gruff Rhys. If you want quirky, look no further than Moon Duo, David Thomas Broughton, Andrew Bird or The Unthanks with the Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band.
Tickets cost £105 for adults with camping, £55 for teens (must be with an adult), under-12s go free and extra campervan passes at £40. More names may be added in due course.
Meanwhile, the aforementioned sisterhood that is End of the Road Festival 2012 have been busy collating their own line-up - and what a cracker it is too. Tindersticks, Grizzly Bear, First Aid Kit and Robyn Hitchcock are amongst the equally-flamboyant stack of performers, due on stage throughout the August Bank Holiday weekend (31st Aug - 2nd Sep) - tickets cost £150 for adults, £120 for teens and the whole thing takes place as usual at Larmer Tree Gardens, on the Wiltshire/ Dorset border.
