Festival goers from Preston will be making their annual pilgrimage to the Lake District for Kendal Calling 2017 this weekend (July 27-30).


The first thing most people want to know, once the line-up is confirmed, is how the weather is shaping up.

The weather in the Lake District is notoriously unpredictable, with the sun shining one minute and the rain pouring the next.

We’ve compiled the latest weather forecast for the Lowther Deer Park event below and we’ll update it if the outlook changes in the coming days.

More: Kendal Calling will be live-streamed

This year sees Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, Frank Turner, Franz Ferdinand, Brian Wilson and more play the sold out festival.


The first day of the festival will see Franz Ferdinand and Happy Monday perform on Thursday ticket holders.

Temperatures should be around 15C with only 0.4mm of rain forecast despite it being fairly overcast.


The forecast is largely the same as Thursday for the first full day of the festival.

Temperatures will hover around 15C, it’ll be fairly overcast and, if there is any rain, it should only be around 0.3mm.


The waterproofs and wellies might have to make an appearance on the Saturday of the event.

Temperatures will nudge up to around 16C but there will be around 1.6mm of rainfall.


Normality should resume on the Sunday to give the festival a bright finish and hopefully dry up any of the rainfall from the Saturday.

Temperatures back to 15C and only a small chance of rain.
