Standon Calling CancelledStandon Calling has announced that this year's festival has been cancelled, here is the statement from the festival website 

Over the last few months of hard work planning our return this summer, it has become clear that the costs of running the event, already considerably higher over the last two years, have significantly increased again, making it practically impossible for us to deliver the fully-formed Standon Calling you Standoners have come to love, expect and deserve this year.

The painful truth is that ploughing on in this very challenging climate could risk the future of the festival. We believe that the only sensible decision is to take a fallow year for the very first time in our history (other than during the height of COVID-19) and use this time to make the 18th Standon Calling one for the ages.

Doubts had emerged about the festival this year in an article published by the BBC that suppliers had not been paid, this together with a lack of activity on any of the social platform since winning the best line up of the year at the festival awards indicated all was not well.

If yo have bought a ticket for Standon Calling the ticket agency will be contacting you in respect of refunding you or rolling over the ticket until next year.
