Little Dragon

A boutique festival renowned for punching above its weight when it comes to stellar live acts, Standon Calling has unveiled a myriad of top talent to join in on its 10th birthday celebrations.

Topping the bill is Gothenburg's leading musical export Little Dragon and Portland rock veterans The Dandy Warhols with a very special UK exclusive, who join previously announced Basement Jaxx as festival headliners. Other acts revealed include BRIT award winner Ella Eyre, the coolest man in UK Hip Hop, Roots Manuva, House maestros Hercules & Love Affair, atmospheric indie-rockers The Antlers and more. Friends, families and festival lovers will descend on Standon's breathtaking manor grounds on 31st July to 2nd August for a magical weekend of live music & DJs, fancy dress, swimming and day to night hedonism.

Pop outsiders Little Dragon have never been afraid to push the envelope with a slew of sensational albums under their belts, each as unique as the rest. The band's third album Ritual Union skyrocketed them into critical acclaim, yet they've kept their heads and still continue to deliver intriguing and unpredictable music as well as an electrifying live performance that will be seen at this year's Standon Calling. The Dandy Warhols are certainly no strangers to live shows, having celebrated their 20th anniversary last year and toured with the likes of David Bowie, Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones. Standon Calling are proud to announce the Portland band will perform their only live show at this year's tenth birthday and will be an absolute must see over as they wow crowds with their favourite tracks from their eight album back catalogue along with brand new material.

Standon Calling is renowned for its eclectic musical line-up and 2015 will be no different. Roots Manuva brings UK Hip Hop and roots to the festival, house and disco comes courtesy of New Yorker Andy Butler and his ever changing Hercules & Love Affair, while Nottingham's own Saint Raymond brings a helping of folk rock. Supporting rising stars, Standon welcomes BRIT winner and Rudimental collaborator Ella Eyre, BBC Sound of 2015 rock duo Slaves, dreamy electronic dance trio Real Lies, hotly tipped soulful crooner Kwabs, Liverpool trio All We Are and more.

This year's Standon Calling promises to be the biggest yet. What started as a birthday BBQ and DJs with a handful of friends has become the perfect summer escape for festival-goers, offering renowned and upcoming acts, art, comedy, fancy dress and of course its own heated outdoor swimming pool. Expect an innovative new day-to-night programme that will see the festival embrace its dual persona of packed out fun for all by day and then more mischievous side as a myriad of hedonistic surprises are unveiled for when the sun goes down.
