Standon Calling

The unmissable Standon Calling takes place in August and invites you to take part in a spectacular festival with this years theme about adventure and exploration!

Standon Calling is a three-day party with musical  icons, breakthrough acts, a swimming pool, themed fancy dress, an on-site club with a 6am licence, bars that never seem to close, roaming interactive theatre and much more besides. This year's festival takes place on August 3-5 in Standon, Hertfordshire, just 45 minutes north of London.

Headlining in 2012 are Fat Freddy’s Drop, Death in Vegas and Beardyman. Elsewhere on the bill !!! (Chk Chk Chk) play their only UK festival this summer with support from Crazy P, Willy Mason, Field Music, Dub Pistols, King Charles, Casiokids, Trojan Sound System, The Nextmen and Greg Wilson. Plus many more acts to be announced…

This year’s theme is all about adventure and exploration. Watch acrobats swing from the Amazonian branches of the tree bar, discover creatures of the deep in the swimming pool and dance late into the night with fantastical creatures in the Cowshed Club. The next morning take to the skies in a hot air balloon before crash landing at the feet of the giants of Gulliver’s Travels.
