This year’s event, that runs from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd August, is set to be headlined by Suede, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls and Example, while other acts include the likes of Clean Bandit, Augustines and Happy Mondays.
Frightened Rabbit, Jimi Goodwin, De La Soul, Zane Lowe, Bondax, Admiral Fallow, Woman’s Hour and Breton will also be appearing on the bill.
The fest will also boast the involvement of Tim Peaks Diner: the musical, cultural and foodie pop up set up by The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess. Open from 10am until 10pm, this year’s Tim Peaks involves Frankie and the Heartstrings bringing their Pop Recs Ltd. store to Kendal Calling. Nick Hodgson from Kaiser Chiefs’ new band Albert Albert are set to perform at the event, alongside Seahawks and dance outfit Wigan Young Souls. There’s even Oasis’ Bonehead providing a track by track guide to ‘(What’s the story) Morning Glory?’
And for those lucky enough to get their hands on tickets, don’t forget: the fancy dress theme for this year’s weekender is ‘Kendal Calling Goes Beyond The Stars’.
