Dubbed as North West’s finest festival, Kendal Calling announces additional acts
The popular festival returns for another three day spectacular at Lowether Deer Park in the idyllic Lake District from Friday 26th – Sunday 28th July.
But let’s forget about its idyllic surroundings for a minute, there’s music to discuss. The festival boasts 12 stages and 85 new acts during the three-day event and the headline acts are none other than US hip-hop act Public Enemy, Jonny Marr of The Smiths fame and Seasick Steve who will cross the pond with his guitar to bring us his bluesy vibe. Other headline acts include Basement Jaxx, The Charlatans and Scottish Indie band Primal Scream. Also to feature at the Cumbrian festival includes The D.O.T, (a collaboration between Mike Skinner of The Streets and Rob Harvey from The Music), as well as Mike Skinner’s DJ set, The Lightening Seeds Acoustic and British Sea Power.
The Woodland area is set to return after it’s successful stint last year and will feature the regions’ rising stars and promises to uncover some hidden gems. Not only does the festival celebrate it’s local artists but it includes the Real Ale festival, comedy, spoken word & arts and well as the Ladybird children’s area making it a family friendly event.
