Lauren Down (End of The Road Festival)

Lauren Down is the Managing Director of End of The Road – a critically acclaimed, award-winning independent festival for real music fans that takes place in Dorset, England. It has, over the years, seen the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Patti Smith, St. Vincent, Little Simz, Damon Albarn, Vampire Weekend, Father John Misty, King Krule, Tame Impala, Michael Kiwanuka, Bon Iver and Sigur Rós perform. End of The Road 2022 is set to feature Pixies, The Magnetic Fields, Aldous Harding, Fleet Foxes and more.

When she’s not running around a field in Dorset with more walkie-talkies than she has hands, she can be found scribbling words for various publications, including The Line of Best Fit – where she held the position of Deputy Editor for 5 years, before becoming a Contributing Editor in 2018.
