With Kendal Calling fast approaching, the hype is getting all too real! What better way to keep the excitement going than to announce our Calling Out line-up!

Over the years, this iconic stage has played host to some of the best up and coming music from across the globe, including The 1975, Mumford and Sons and IDLES.

2023 see’s the return of Kendal favourites Circa Waves occupying the headline slot on Saturday night while The Hunna will close out the weekend in the big top.

Get your singing voice ready as TikTok sensation William Joseph Cook will also be joining us, along with rising indie pop stars Rachel Choueiri and Katy J Pearson.

On Friday night, longtime friend of the festival Chris Hawkins’ Awesome Friends will be taking over the tent to bring you some of the freshest tunes around from cult megastars Wunderhorse, indie songstress Matilda Mann and stalwarts of the scene, Spector.

Although we’re excited about the music, we’re equally excited to see our tent transformed into another world! For those of you that joined us in 2022, you’ll know our tents are anything but ordinary with each taking on a life of it’s own as step inside, and of course, this will be the case once more as we take inspiration from this year’s theme.
