Fans who missed out on the sold-out event will be able to live the event through the video platform Twitch.
Twitch is predominantly known for streaming of video games but now you’ll be able to see all the action from Lowther Deer Park at home.
Andy Smith, promoter, Kendal Calling said: “We’ve very excited to announce that Kendal Calling will be streaming live on Twitch this year!
“For the first time you’ll be able to watch performances from the main stage, Tim Peaks, Calling Out and Glow tent live from the comfort of your home or – for the less hardy festival goer – your tent.

“This is especially useful since the festival sold out faster than ever back in February and sadly some of the usual faces missed out on their tickets. Well, here’s your chance to digitally join us in the fields.”
Jason Fletcher, of Twitch, commented: “Twitch is a favorite of fans and artists alike, for its unparalleled setting and its eclectic lineups which leads to spectacular, one-of-a-kind performances.
We’re excited to be able to expand its reach exponentially and with the kind of quality production you’d expect from major studios and networks.”
Kendal Calling returns from July 27-30 with performances from Franz Ferdinand, Frank Turner, Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers and more.
Twitch are also offering those who missed out on tickets the opportunity to win them for next week here.
