After last yearâ€™s big birthday bash we are back for an 11th year in the beautiful Lake District and we are SO excited to announce this yearâ€™s huge headliners!
We are feelingÂ supersonicÂ to announce that one of Manchesterâ€™s finest muso’sÂ Noel GallagherÂ will be bringing his swag and festival-ready anthems to the fields with hisÂ High Flying Birds.
There is also aÂ rumour millÂ going round that chart-topping drum and bass kingsÂ RudimentalÂ will be bringing their party sets to Kendal Calling, and we thrilled to be able say these rumours are 100% true!
MadnessÂ you say! Well this year we are goingÂ BIGÂ and what bigger way then to invite London legends Madness to bring their hit laden sets to the rolling hills of the Lake District. Celebrating 40 years since their formation, we canâ€™t wait for these showmen to blast out tunes such as â€˜Our Houseâ€™, â€˜Baggy Trousersâ€™ and â€˜One Step Beyondâ€™. We prepared to have your singing voice at the ready!
Crashinâ€™ InÂ on their triumphant return a year ago with their landmark album â€˜Modern Natureâ€™, theÂ CharlatansÂ will be headlining the main stage on Thursday with their huge hits, plus Tim Burgess will be popping up over the weekend to deliver dj sets, mayhem and all manner of spontaneous happenings as theÂ Tim Peaks DinerÂ â€“ a firm festival favourite â€“ celebrates itâ€™s 5thÂ year at Kendal Calling..
Joining the headliners are Indie Rock sensationÂ Catfish and the Bottlemen, quirky indie quartetÂ Everything Everything, gritty three-pieceÂ Band Of Skulls, incendiary Swedish rock and rollersÂ The Hives, Rock quartetÂ The Darkness, post-punk Indie New YorkersÂ We Are Scientists, the smoky blues ofÂ Rag â€˜nâ€™ Bone ManÂ and filling the now customary hip hop legends slot the mightyÂ Sugarhill Gang.
Can weÂ get a rewind as over on the dance stage will be none other than returning man of the momentÂ Craig David, living legendÂ David Rodigan MBEÂ and Radio 1 and XOYO residentÂ Toddla T – just to name a few!
It is certainly shaping up to be a wonderful weekend in the fields! Keep your eyes peeled on our website, Twitter and Facebook pages as we’ll be announcing more acts in the coming weeks – exciting!
