The line-up is by no means finalised as yet, but many of their finest acts have already been confirmed to appear, all of whom collectively showcase the eclectic musical taste of what has over past 15 years become one of the UK’s best-loved and most celebrated labels. Acts appearing on the 31st August include the below:
Alessi’s Ark / Beach House / Cashier No. 9 / Dirty Three / Hannah Cohen / I Break Horses / John Grant / Jonathan Wilson / Lanterns On The Lake / The Low Anthem / Midlake / Mountain Man / Our Broken Garden / Roy Harper / Veronica Falls
A few words from Bella Union’s founder and label boss Simon Raymonde on celebrating their 15th Anniversary with the End Of The Road Festival:
“Bella Union and End of The Road Festival have so much in common, most notably our taste in bands, and having had several bands over the last 5 years who have headlined there, like Fleet Foxes, Explosions In The Sky, and Midlake, all of whom loved every minute, it seemed that when discussing what we should do for our 15th Anniversary a conversation with them was a good starting point. The outcome is something very special and this will be the pinnacle of our anniversary celebrations throughout 2012.”
More acts will be announced soon!
