A festival which has become a firm favourite of Preston music lovers has unveiled what promises to be its finest line up yet.Advertisement
Multi-award winning Kendal Calling has a Welsh tinge to its line up with the Manic Street Preachers and Stereophonics the lead headliners.
Joining them for the four day event in July at the Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District are Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Brian Wilson and Franz Ferdinand.
Richard Jones from the Stereophonics said: “We’ve been fortunate to headline and play at some amazing festivals over the years and it’s an honour to play at Kendal Calling this summer a first for us in the Lake District. See you there!”
With more than 30 years of being a mainstay of the British rock scene the Manic Street Preachers bring their experience to a headline set.
The band said: “We are genuinely thrilled to be headlining Kendal Calling, a festival we have always wanted to play in a truly inspiring setting.”
The festival has six headliners in total and festival founder Andy Smith said: “Drastic times cause for drastic measures and to that end we’ve gone the whole nine yards! We’re excited to be welcoming no less than six headliners to the fields this year, including Brian Wilson’s last appearance on these shores as he performs Pet Sounds in full. See you in the fields!”
Alongside the music there’s four days of art installations, comedy, gourmet food, kid’s entertainment and real ale at what’s been ranked as the UK’s best medium festival.
Kendal Calling runs from Thursday 27 July to Sunday 30 July.
Tickets are priced £135 for the four days and go on sale from Friday (27 January). They can be bought from Ticketmaster or by visiting the Kendal Calling website where a number of payment plans are available.
