As we bid adieu to the triumphant return of festivals this year and enter the cold Winter months, we thought it seemed fit to cheer ourselves up with a bit of reflection of the year's season gone by. Whilst we say goodbye to our favourite events till next year, we’d like to introduce you to just a few of the new members of the TicketSellers & Eventree family!
End of the Road remains true to its initial dream: to book the bands that they love and present them in a way that respects the music and the audience. Not about any particular style of music, it evolves depending on what excites the organisers each year.
The beautiful gardens at Larmer Tree form an ideal place to create a woodland wonderland, strewn with art installations and decorated spaces. The organisers try to make sure that everything on site is the way that they like it: good but not crazily expensive food (organic and local where possible), a wide range of local ales and other drinks at the bars, and caring and well-mannered staff.
With no VIP areas and musicians wandering about the site and watching other artist’s shows, expect spontaneous performances and unforgettable experiences at one of the last festivals of the season’s calendar.
Secret Garden Party
A staple on the Summer music calendar for 15 years and one of the UK’s first ’boutique festivals’, Secret Garden Party has seen performances from the likes of Gorillaz, Florence + The Machine, Faithless, Lily Allen, Blondie and many more. However, in 2017, founder Freddie Fellowes said “all good things must come to an end”.
Announcing their return in 2022, organisers described the festival as "passionately independent" and said: "We have never compromised our principles and we never will. SGP has always been a beacon of what you can do within those terms and, as imitation (being the sincerest form of flattery) proves, it has set the bar for everyone else going forward."
Having worked with them before their five-year hiatus, we’re incredibly excited to welcome back SGP next Summer - even more excited knowing the 2022 event sold out in record time! Kudos if you were lucky enough to snap up tickets for this one as it’s bound to be a banger.
Moseley Folk & Arts 2021 was the 15th festival in Moseley Park. Each year the organisers give it their all to improve on the last and, judging by the size of their audience and the positive feedback from the festival’s regulars, they tend to get most things right.
A program filled with a healthy mix of traditional, contemporary and downright experimental folk and acoustic music, Moseley Folk showcases unsigned acts right next to well established international artists for a really exciting bill.
Held in Moseley Park, a stunning 11-acre woodland glade in the heart of Moseley Village, the event is just 2 miles from the centre of Birmingham - but a world away from city life. It is the perfect setting for a festival as the ground slopes down into a natural amphitheatre in front of a stunning lake.
