Returning for its 17th edition next year, Standon Calling have announced the first names heading to the Hertfordshire countryside from 20th-23rd July for next year’s festival.
Revealing their four headliners, Self Esteem, Years & Years, Bloc Party and The Human League are topping 2023’s bill, with other performances coming from the likes of Squid, Lynks, Sad Night Dynamite, Melanie C and Confidence Man.
“2022 was an incredibly special year for all of us at Standon Calling,” festival founder and director Alex Trenchard says. “It’s given us so much excitement to look forward to 2023, in what is shaping up to be the greatest Standon Calling to date. We’re so proud of this year’s progress in booking a gender-balanced headline bill and are certainly in for a good time. Couldn’t be happier to bring Self Esteem back and in an even bigger slot, alongside Bloc Party, an all time favourite of ours and one of the greatest modern alternative indie rock bands around. With more iconic names like Years & Years, The Human League and many more, we’ve booked some of the best live acts going, including future superstars ready to take over 2023 and much more - this announcement really captures everything important about Standon Calling. We can’t wait to see everyone next July, and we’ve got a LOT more surprises to come - so stay tuned!”
