Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Rudimental, Madness and The Charlatans have been named as the headliners of this year’s Kendal Calling festival.
Also appearing on July 28-31 are Catfish And The Bottlemen, Everything Everything, Blossoms, Craig David, Band Of Skulls, Pretty Vicious and Toddla T.
Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow (Tuesday) from here.
It’s the 11th year for the festival at Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District, following 2015’s tenth anniversary festival which was headlined by Elbow, Snoop Dogg, Kaiser Chiefs and The Vaccines.
Charlatans singer Tim Burgess said: “As ever, I’m really looking forward to Kendal Calling. It’s the sixth year in a row for me, the second time The Charlatans will have headlined and this year is the fifth year for Tim Peaks. It’s going to be an extra special four days. See you there!”
Other acts confirmed to play over the weekend include Ash, The Hives, We Are Scientists, The Darkness, David Rodigan, We Are Scientists, The Lightning Seeds, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and Hootton Tennis Club.
Kendal Calling founder Ben Robinson said: “My first gig in a field was at Loch Lomond watching Oasis, 20 years ago. That moment defined my youth and my calling in the years to follow. Noel’s songwriting has soundtracked the lives of millions over the last two decades. It’s with great pride that we’re able to bring those anthems and his new hits to the fields of Kendal Calling. Alongside Rudimental, Madness, The Charlatans and the rest of the bill it’s going to be another weekend to remember, see you the fields!”
