Site Art

One of our favourite things at Kendal Calling is the art from independent artists which feature in every corner of the site. We’re thrilled to give artists the chance to go wild with their imagination and in amongst the music and stalls, you’ll find all manner of wonderful things to make you smile, muse & laugh.
