Standon Calling Second Wave of Acts

Festival Crowd Header

Acclaimed indie kings Editors, the poetic and profound Kate Tempest, singer-songwriter KT Tunstall, folk-pop duo Slow Club and many, many more join our live music line up for 2017.

Heading up the electronic newcomers is DJ-before-actor Idris Elba, disco spinner Lindstrøm, the prolific Doc Brown and modern dance maestros Horse Meat Disco.

All of these new names join an already stellar line up - including Orbital, Clean Bandit, Slaves and Laura Mvula - set to descend on the fields of Hertfordshire this July for one amazing not-to-be-missed party.

Last week we announced your Family programme, headlined by Horrible Histories who will bring their show The Best of Barmy Britain to the main stage on Saturday.  

We'll be whetting your appetite with a Food announcement soon, as well as lots of fun on The Lawn including Comedy, Talks and much more.

Plus, we hope you're all hard at work coming up with your costumes for the 2017 Story - Tales of the Enchanted Valley.
