Dutch Uncles, Palace & more ready themselves for DIY’s Calling Out Stage at Kendal Calling

Festival kicks off today at the Lake District’s Deer Park.

Set against the backdrop of Lowther Deer Park, deep in the heart of the Lake District, Kendal Calling’s bill covers all musical bases. From the guitar-driven chaos of The Vaccines and the grandiose singalongs from Elbow, to the psychedelic wig-outs of The Horrors and the pop stylings of Lucy Rose, there’s something to suit your every mood.

On Saturday 1st August, DIY is taking over with the Calling Out stage. We’ve got Public Service Broadcasting, Palace and Manchester’s Dutch Uncles, amongst others.

“It’s been great to finally enjoy the atmosphere of festivals,” says Dutch Uncles frontman Duncan Wallis. “It’s too exhausting to let the pressure of no soundchecks get to you after a few years of doing this.

“We learned out lesson not to play too much new stuff at Live at Leeds this year,” he laughs. “That was when The Cribs fans we were playing to started “Wakefield!” chants over our woodwind quarter samples. So we just play the ‘hits’ now.”
