End of the Road Festival has managed to land yet another major scoop with its line-up as Bright Eyes are confirmed for what will be their first live show in over nine years.
Bright Eyes, who last released new material in 2011 in the shape of their album The People’s Key, have been on hiatus since their last live performances as part of a tour in Australia almost a decade ago.
However, after teasing a comeback by launching a new Instagram account, Conor Oberst and Co. have confirmed their return as part of End of the Road 2020 which will take place in September.
Elsewhere, Bright Eyes will be joined by the likes of Pixies, King Krule, Angel Olsen, Big Thief, Richard Hawley, Richard Dawson, Warmduscher and more as part of the official billing for the Dorset festival.
See the full line up, below.
