Kendal Calling celebrates its 14th year in the Lake District in 2019, and coming back with a stellar line up, the award winning festival is set to be a success once again.
Kendal has something for everyone including an eclectic main stage line up, with headline sets coming from Courteeners, Nile Rodgers and Chic, the return of the Doves, Manic Street Preachers and the legendary Tom Jones. You can also catch some of the key names in comedy at the Soapbox, late night DJs in the Glow tent and a host of the newest and best bands at the Woodlands and Calling Out stages.
With tickets standing at just £140, Kendal Calling marks itself as one of the most affordable festivals, especially considering anybody and everybody is catered for. Not often does a festival so effortlessly and efficiently strike the balance between a family friendly environment and one for those of all ages, but for the team at Kendal that is no problem.
With Thomas Turgoose, Clint Boon and Howling Rhythm all taking the decks at the House Party tent, the party is bound to last until the early hours.

This six piece have already mastered their own take on the genre, incorporating trumpet from player ‘Joe the Blow’ in curating an individual sound that stands up to both recorded listening as well as a stunning live set. These boys are bound for great things, and with a 2019 jam packed full of shows and festivals, including Glastonbury and Truck, it is no doubt that they are here to stay.
After a 2018 spent garnering huge support, with incredible headline spots in venues such as Manchester’s O2 Ritz and the Garage, London, this Northern three piece will be celebrating the success of their debut album in the fields this year. With a soft indie sound reminiscent of Vampire Weekend and Sundara Karma, Cassia create the perfect soundtrack to a summer of festivals, making this environment the perfect place to catch them if you haven’t before.
