Thousands of people head to the Lowther Deer Park festival each year in what has become an annual musical pilgrimage for many.
Turner last headlined the festival in 2014 so it hasn’t taken long for him to return to top the bill again.
He said: “It’s a wonderful festival, run by good people, for the right reasons.
“The vibe is excellent, and the line-up matches that. It’s an honour to be asked to come back!”

In between putting on his own music festival, Lost Evenings, and planning for his new album, he’s also done some work with Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), releasing a song to raise awareness. CALM work towards bringing down the suicide rate among men.
“I think CALM do an incredibly important job, and it’s a small thing for me to try and help out where I can.
“I try to do my share of charity stuff in my career, I think everyone does really, it’s a good thing to use whatever platform I have in life to try and talk about something other than myself, from time to time.”
Kendal Calling is at Lowther Deer Park from July 27-30.
