They join Mercury Rev, Calexico and AMC at Dorset festival
Richard Hawley and Bon Iver are two of the latest additions to this year’s End of the Road Festival line-up.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of Hawley’s triumphant show at London’s Royal Albert Hall this week (May 20), when he was joined onstage by former Pulp bandmate Jarvis and Sheffield peer Tony Christie.
Bon Iver, Uncut’s album of the month, has just played his debut UK shows at the Uncut stage at Brighhton’s Great Escape festival, and his album “For Emma, Forever Ago” is set to be one of 2008’s greats.
Also joining headliners Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band, Mercury Rev and Calexico, will be previous Club Uncut performer Liz Green, Noah & The Whale and Peter & The Wolf.
More major acts are still to be announced for the three day intimate award-winning festival (Best new festival in 2006, UK Festival Awards).
There is a maximum capacity of 5000 and the festival takes place at Larmer Tree Gardens from September 12 – 14.
