Into the Wild Festival news: HOLLY BUTCHER: 1990-2018

Latest update from Into the Wild

Probably the most essential words one could read today! X

It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts.

That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.

I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.

I haven’t started this ‘note before I die’ so that death is feared – I like the fact that we are mostly ignorant to it’s inevitability.. Except when I want to talk about it and it is treated like a ‘taboo’ topic that will never happen to any of us.. That’s been a bit tough. I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bullshit.

I have dropped lots of my thoughts below as I have had a lot of time to ponder life these last few months. Of course it’s the middle of the night when these random things pop in my head most!

Those times you are whinging about ridiculous things (something I have noticed so much these past few months), just think about someone who is really facing a problem. Be grateful for your minor issue and get over it. It’s okay to acknowledge that something is annoying but try not to carry on about it and negatively effect other people’s days.

Once you do that, get out there and take a freaking big breath of that fresh Aussie air deep in your lungs, look at how blue the sky is and how green the trees are; It is so beautiful. Think how lucky you are to be able to do just that – breathe.

You might have got caught in bad traffic today, or had a bad sleep because your beautiful babies kept you awake, or your hairdresser cut your hair too short. Your new fake nails might have got a chip, your boobs are too small, or you have cellulite on your arse and your belly is wobbling.

Let all that shit go.. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole. I’m watching my body waste away right before my eyes with nothing I can do about it and all I wish for now is that I could have just one more Birthday or Christmas with my family, or just one more day with my partner and dog. Just one more.

I hear people complaining about how terrible work is or about how hard it is to exercise – Be grateful you are physically able to. Work and exercise may seem like such trivial things … until your body doesn’t allow you to do either of them.

I tried to live a healthy life, in fact, that was probably my major passion. Appreciate your good health and functioning body- even if it isn’t your ideal size. Look after it and embrace how amazing it is. Move it and nourish it with fresh food. Don’t obsess over it.

Remember there are more aspects to good health than the physical body.. work just as hard on finding your mental, emotional and spiritual happiness too. That way you might realise just how insignificant and unimportant having this stupidly portrayed perfect social media body really is.. While on this topic, delete any account that pops up on your news feeds that gives you any sense of feeling shit about yourself. Friend or not.. Be ruthless for your own well-being.

Be grateful for each day you don’t have pain and even the days where you are unwell with man flu, a sore back or a sprained ankle, accept it is shit but be thankful it isn’t life threatening and will go away.

Whinge less, people! .. And help each other more.

COVID-19 has affected many, many businesses, but has been felt heavily through the live music industry.

Months worth of hard work that go into festivals like End of the Road and many other fantastic events around the country evaporated overnight, with entire annual incomes given up. Many taking the decisions themselves before the Government did because it was the right thing to do.

Today marks the launch of the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign to ask the government to do the right thing in return - help support the live music industry on it's road to recovery.

Missing you End of the Road..... hoping so much for 2021 🙏

Done 😇 and thanks for posting End Of The Road Festival 2021

KISS - End Of The Road World Tour 2020 Live Online 🔴Official Live📺📱👉http://streaminghdlivetv.xyz/KISS-2020-Tickets/ 🔴Official Live📺📱👉http://streaminghdlivetv.xyz/KISS-2020-Tickets/

We were so excited about welcoming Andy Shauf back to End of the Road in September, and we know a lot of you were as excited about seeing him.

Next Tuesday (June 30th) Andy will be appearing in his first live stream since the pandemic began, playing an all-request set from his home in Toronto.

This one-hour performance will help to raise funds for a variety of causes, including his neighbourhood's Parkdale Community Food Bank, Nia Centre for the Arts (a Toronto-based not-for-profit arts centre that supports, showcases and promotes an appreciation of arts from across the African Diaspora), and Andy Shauf's band and crew. Fans can make song requests by visiting Andy's Twitter or Instagram (@andyshauf), or through the Facebook event page for this show.

We were holding out hope we wouldn’t have to do this but sadly, due to the current pandemic, we are postponing End of The Road 2020 until 2-5 September 2021.

We’ll miss you all terribly and we can’t wait to see you there. You’ll notice PIXIES, King Krule, Big Thief, Bright Eyes, Little Simz and Aldous Harding have all already promised they’ll be there too!

We do need your help right now, more than ever, to keep the independent spirit of EOTR alive so we’re asking you to roll your tickets forward to 2021 if you can. If you need it, and times are hard we know, you are of course entitled to a face-value refund. We’ll be emailing all ticket buyers with full details shortly.

Love to you all,
Simon and the team at End of The Road

Loud and Quiet Magazine came on board as End Of The Road’s print media partner in 2016. That first summer, they put on a “Wedding Reception” after-party to follow Bat for Lashes' headline set, which she DJ'd at herself. The following year they hosted a “Midnight Mass” after Father John Misty's headline show and since 2018 they have thrown the festival’s official opening party with a phenomenal Time Hop themed Silent Disco.

Elsewhere they turned their Midnight Chats Podcast series into Midday Chats for us on the Piano Stage with guests from the line up including Nadine Shah, Josh T. Pearson and Cate Le Bon.

The magazine dedicates an issue to End Of The Road every year, providing a custom guide to the festival in a way that only Loud and Quiet could. In a short space of time, they managed to pick out what makes End of The Road so unique - homing in on its idiosyncrasies and championing them.

Quite simply, they’re kindred independent spirits. Support them if you can.
