The Lancashire Hotpots will be performing their traditional popular set at the festival. There will also be comedy from Russell Howard and Paul Smith.

Andy Smith, Kendal Calling co-founder said, “After the week we have had, bring on the summer! It is with much joy and excitement we share with you today the biggest Kendal Calling lineup to date. From the incredible Paolo Nutini closing the Sunday night and Keane, Sugababes, Paul Heaton & Rianne Downey and Katy B gracing our fields for the first time, joined by old friends Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds and The Streets closing the Friday and Saturday night respectively, we have the perfect ingredients for a fantastically celebratory weekend. But as ever the most important ingredient is YOU – and we can’t to see you in the fields.”

Gary Neville will also perform his only UK DJ set alongside festival mainstay Tim Burgess.

Tim Burgess said, “I’m very excited about the prospect of DJing with Gary – he’s got great taste in music. Last time we shared a stage was when he joined The Charlatans on guitar. Can’t promise we’ll be doing any songs together but there might be an impromptu singalong at some point…”
