Kendal Calling which is celebrating its 15th edition has revealed the first wave of artists for this year's festival which takes place at Lowther Deer Park from Thursday 30th July - Sunday 2nd August.  

This year will see Foals, Stereophonics, Supergrass, and Primal Scream top the bill, plus special guest Bill Bailey.

Festival Director, Andy Smith comments: 

“This is it! This is our most staggering lineup yet, to celebrate our 15-year journey. We have been trying to get Foals on the bill for many years, and it’s long been a dream to have Supergrass and their very large back catalogue of hits joining us - the first album I ever bought! But what would a birthday party be without old friends? We are happy campers indeed knowing that Stereophonics, Primal Scream and Dizzee Rascal will be joining us in the fields. The music is only part of the fun - this year more than any other we’re really ramping up immersive activities and games right across the park and very excited to be announcing a whole lineup of new areas, venues, activities and events over the coming months. Roll on summer!”

Other artists announced today include Blossoms, Craig David Presents TS5, The Kooks, Dizzee Rascal, Johnny Marr, You Me At Six, DMAS, Sundara Karma, Pale Waves and Shaggy.

The new Afterglow area (previously Glow Tent), will see some of the biggest in bass and beats with a dance party that rings late into the night. The line up includes drum and bass titan Andy C plus Hannah Wants, Jungle (DJ Set), Craig Charles, 808 State, Dub Phizik & Strategy, Jaguar Skills, Emerald and a very special DJ Yoda: History Of Gaming.

Set in the incredible setting of the Lake District’s Lowther Deer Park, Kendal Calling is renowned for more than just music with visitors enjoying four days of arts installations, comedy, cabaret, cinema, magic, kids’ entertainment, gourmet food and real ale all within the confines of what is surely the most beautiful festival site in the UK. Expect gaming delights at every turn, from retro arcade games, crazy challenges, legendary characters, the costume parade and retro sports day fun all setting up shop across the weekend.
