My favourite festival in the world is nearly upon us once again with a line up even bigger than they have ever had. Kendal Calling are ready to welcome to the fields headliners Rudimental, Madness, and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. If that isn’t enough to make you buy a ticket (which it should be), also on the bill are The Charlatans, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Maximo Park, Everything Everything, Peter Doherty, and Blossoms. This is the strongest line up they have ever boasted and it also features Band of Skulls, We Are Scientists, Rat Boy, Ghostpoet, Sundara Karma, and Rag n Bone Man. It’s hard to find a line up better than this for a festival this year and if bands aren’t completely your thing, there will be still something for you.
The glow tent boasts another incredible line up including Craig David, Shy FX, Redlight, Eton Messy, and David Rodigan to provide nights full of dancing in the fields. If comedy is your thing then this will be provided by headliner Jason Manford along with Justin Moorhouse, Rob Rouse, Russell Hicks and Phil Jerrod amongst many more.
On top of all this there will always be something worth watching in the many other tents and stages including Chai Wallah, Riot Jazz, Tim Peaks Diner and the Woodlands. This is of course just a sample of the feast that Kendal has on offer; to indulge yourself on everything you better get down to the Cumbrian countryside between the 28th and 31st of July 2016.
