The people behind End of Road festival are launching another festival. End of Road is great, and the current line up for 2012 is great, so why bother going to this? Well firstly it's being held at Welbeck Abbey in the northern reaches of Sherwood Forest, which is a beautiful place. And secondly, those guys have great taste. This is obvious when you check out the first batch of bands set to play the No Direction Home (8th-10th June) festival:

  • 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
