Girl power will be a strong force in this year's End of The Road Festival in Wiltshire with both Marika Hackman and Nadia Reid performing.

New Zealand singer/songwriter, Nadia, will be singing songs from her latest album Preservation, which was released in March this year.

Nadia said: “This record is about being OK with who I am in the world, and who I want to be. Learning to live with the fact I’m a person who operates differently to others. These songs are a confession to my future and past self.”

Marika will also be singing songs from her new album, I'm Not Your Man, which was produced by Charlie from Alt J. The singer had a taste for the macabre which shone from her music, but in this new album she says she has moved away from her dark side.

"It is a bold departure, a heavy sound, recorded live, giving that raw excitement. It will be great to be on stage with a band for the festivals. I have pulled together a band that is a mix of friends and musicians I have played with before,'' she said.

Marika was invited to be the featured vocalist on Alt J's song Warm Foothills.

Also in the line-up will be luminaries of the indie, folk and Americana genres: Father John Misty, Mac Demarco, Jesus and Mary Chain, Bill Callahan, Band of Horses. Ty Segall, and Mdou Moctar.

The festival, at the Larmer Tree Gardens runs from August 31 to September 3.

The first End of the Road festival began in 2006, set up by two friends Simon Taffe and Sofia Hagberg. It is set over four stages: the Wood Stage, Garden Stage, Big Top Stage and the Tipi Tent but in the woods there is also a clearing with a piano where semi secret sets are performed.

The festival is not only about the music there is a healing field, a film tent, comedians to entertain, a library set in the heart of the forest, a games arena with ping pong and table football and a children's area.

Last year the festival scooped the Best Small Festival award at the NME Awards. The capacity of the garden setting is just 16,000. BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction presenters will be roaming the festival site and there will be a late night DJ set from Nick Luscombe, a Silent Disco, The Disco Ship and a Midnight Mass hosted by Loud & Quiet following Father John Misty’s headline set on Saturday night.
