End of the Road Festival

Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire

Thursday 29th August - Sunday 1st September

Rounding the Wicked Events summer off, will be last but certainly not least, End of the Road Festival. A firm favourite for music fans, this exceptional festival fills Larmer Tree Gardens with fantastic performances, which are often the only opportunity you will get to see many of them in the UK this year.


Volunteers are required to assist with most of the front of house areas of the festival, including; venues, arena, gates, campsites, programme sales and car parks. End of the Road festival is often a sell out and is very popular to volunteer at, so be sure to get your application in as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
