With 2017's summer festival season coming to an end, we take a look at the line ups of End Of The Road, Bestival and Festival No6 to see who's playing where.

End Of The Road
31st August - 3rd September, 
Larmer Tree Gardens, Blandford, Dorset

The Jesus & Mary Chain
One of the true original indie bands. 2017 was the year that The Jesus and Mary Chain released their first album in almost twenty years. 'Damage and Joy' was welcomed by loyal fans and critics, and their other festival dates so far this year have reportedly been crowd pleasing greatest hits sets.

Baxter Dury
A modern master of non-conventional pop music, Baxter Dury returns in 2017 with his new album and also plays SubcultureLive for Fred Perry at London's 100 Club. Listen to our playlist with Baxter Dury here.

H. Hawkline
Signed to Heavenly Records, one of the best artists to come out of Wales in recent years. Watch our live video of his Dot to Dot festival performance from 2015 below, and Listen to our H. Hawkline playlist here.

Goat Girl
One of the bands to feature in our British New Wave 2017 list back in January. See what happened when Goat Girl supported legendary British band, The Fall, at SubcultureLive here.

The London band reinventing rock as if glam, punk and new romantic all happened at once. HMLTD are definitely one of the most exciting bands around at the moment.

The Moonlandingz
Since their inception in 2015, The Moonlandingz have perplexed onlookers, with many not even sure if they are a real band or not. Made up of Lias and Saul from Fat White Family and Electronic Research Council, the music and excitement around Moonlandingz are very real. Read about our recent SubcultureLive with Fat White Family here.

7th September - 10th September, Lulworth Estate, Dorset

Skinny Girl Diet
Another Subculture favourite and another revolutionary band championing young independent voices. Listen to our playlist with Skinny Girl Diet's Ursula here.

David Rodigan Presents Ram Jam
Nobody brings the reggae to a party like David Rodigan. An experienced DJ in the field of Jamaican music, watch our 2013 interview with the great man below.

Eddie Piller
Founder of Acid Jazz, and peerless expert on all things mod culture and Northern soul. Don't miss Eddie Piller's DJ set if you're at Bestival. Listen to our playlist with Eddie Piller here.

Festival No6 
7the September - 10th September, Portmeirion, Wales

Greg Wilson’s Credit To The Edit
Famed for his innovative use of reel to reel tape and cut up re-edits of tracks, and as one of the early pioneers of UK club culture, Greg Wilson's DJ credits include time at The Haçienda and Wigan Pier. Check out our footage of Greg's set when he curated one of our gigs back in 2012.

One of the most consistently entertaining new-wave orientated bands to emerge in the last five years, PINS have collaborated with the likes of Iggy Pop and recorded at Rancho De La Luna since they appeared at one of our London gigs supporting fellow Mancunians, The Fall, back in 2014. 

Jagwar Ma
With their high energy reinvention of the Madchester sound, Jagwar Ma are a sure fire bet for a great festival set. Watch our video of them performing for us in London in 2014 below.
