First Crop of Artists & Tickets On Sale! 2013-02-28 09:05:57
We’ve been busy at Kendal Calling HQ over the winter months and just can’t wait to be in the fields again this summer! We can finally announce our first crop of artists featuring across all stages at Kendal Calling. Tickets have also gone on sale today and can be purchased here or by calling Ticketline on 0844 888 9991. Deer Lodge luxury accommodation is also available here and is some of the best value on the Festival Circuit.
We are proud to announce this years headliners as Basement Jaxx, The Charlatans (Northern Festival Exclusive) and Primal Scream. Amongst the other acts announced include Lake District heroes British Sea Power, one of the very first Kendal Calling headliners back in 2007, returning to celebrate their 10th year anniversary. Local lads and rising stars Bondax also grace the Glow tent with their unusual mix of garage, deep basslines and R&B.
Some of our other highlights include ASH returning to the festival after their brilliant headline slot, which closed the festival in 2009. Liverpool legends Lightning Seeds bring an acoustic set to the festival while Fake Blood, Radio 1 DJ Jackmaster, Dubstep/Hip-Hop bass bringers Foreign Beggars and D&B Godfather Roni Size will be playing over the weekend in our Glow dance tent. Barry Ashworth will also be dropping a genre busting DJ set in Glow and bringing his full band Dub Pistols to headline the Kaylied area!
New music comes in the form of Kodaline, The 1975, Dutch Uncles, Theme Park, Drenge, Sons & Lovers, Wind-Up Birds, much hyped The Mispers and Preston band Flight of Arrows while Wave Machines return to the festival off the back of their new critically acclaimed album ‘Pollen’ to play in Calling Out. Other local acts include live Balkan rave circus Slamboree, much-hyped Father Funk and Carlisle’s very own Genre-Sluts.
