Grace Jones to headline Standon Calling 2017

The iconic Grace Jones is set to headline this year's Standon Calling joining previously announced headliners Orbital and Clean Bandit.

Standon Calling takes place from Friday 28th - Sunday 30th July at Standon Lordship, Standon, Hertfordshire, SG11 1PR. The festival is about much more than just the music and they’re keen to support interesting artists of all ilks, be they painters, sculptors, writers, actors, comedians or even chefs. A different theme takes over the event each year, reflected in the interactive theatre, art installations, set designs, and outrageous outfits their guests dream up.

They’re pretty sure we’re the only UK festival to feature a swimming pool and their guests make enthusiastic use of that too. They know the people that come to Standon are special so they make an effort to make them feel appreciated. They also like to keep our fields clean and green. Aside from only working with caterers that care about their refuse, they also employ an on-site environmental army to recycle as much as possible and ensure that nothing stays on site that shouldn’t after the event.
