Festival Crowd Header

Kendal Calling have announced even more musical acts alongside the huge Soapbox Comedy Stage lineup for 2017.

Cumbrian heroes and Kendal Calling mainstays British Sea Power will be bringing their new album ‘Let The Dancers Inherit The Party’ to the festival for what promises to be one of their signature, flamboyant sets. Welsh rockers Feeder also join the lineup for what promises to be a sing along standout of the festival and Aussie Britpop fantatics DMAs will be bringing their 90s revivalism to the fields.

Forever championing upcoming talent, Kendal Calling 2017 will also be welcoming Redfaces, MarthaGunn, Catherine McGrath, The Rhythm Method, Outlya, Maruja, Colonel Mustard And The Dijon 5, Dead!, Off Bloom, Little Hours, Larkins, Moses, Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS and The Snuts to the festival.

Since the return of the Soapbox Comedy Stage two years ago it has cemented itself as a fan favourite at the festival and a must visit for all festival goers wanting to explore outside of the festival’s musical lineup. Featuring names like Canadian comics Tony Law and Tom Stade, familiar face of tv comedy James Acaster and acclaimed Scottish comedian Daniel Sloss alongside Rob Deering’s ‘Beat This’, John Kearns, Danny McLoughlin, Garrett Millerick, Katie Mulgrew, Chris Washington, Mark Olver, Jen Brister, Julian Deane, Last Man Standing, Adam Rowe, Gareth Waugh, Pete Otway, Tom Taylor, David Morgan, Paul McCaffrey, Dan Nightingale, Kiri Pritchard Mclean, Mark Nelson, Thom Foole’s House Party, Harriet Dyer, Allyson June Smith and Lou Conran, there are huge laughs to be had all weekend.

Set in the picturesque Lowther Deer Park, one of the UK’s most beautiful festival sites, Kendal Calling will return to the Lake District for an amazing weekend of music, art, comedy, food and drink this July. Despite it being the 12th consecutive sell out for the award winning festival, the capacity will once again stay the same to retain Kendal Calling’s unique atmosphere.
