Kendal Calling – First Acts Announced
With festival tickets now on sale, Kendal Calling HQ are bursting to reveal the first of the sterling acts confirmed for the 2011 event. With all the headliners for this year’s festival still to be announced; the first snippet of the confirmed acts include legends The Levellers, Echo and the Bunnymen, Beardyman, a Northern festival exclusive acoustic set with Tim Burgess & Mark Collins from The Charlatans, and Mr Scruff, with bucket loads of top notch acts yet to be divulged.
These first announcements are just the tip of the iceberg for what’s in store; with all the Main Stage headliners and the full Calling Out (new music) stage, Kaylied Tent (folk stage), Glow dance tent and five other stages line ups still to come; Kendal Calling 2011 is already shaping up to be an epic weekend with some of the finest UK and international artists to be showcased on the festival circuit. But Kendal Calling isn’t just about ambitious and cutting edge music; there are oodles of other activities and events going on throughout the weekend. Riding on the wave of the huge success of the Real Ale festival last year, Kendal Calling HQ are embarking on the tough task of sampling all the local ales to ensure that only the very best beverages are on offer for its return to this year’s festival! There is also the flamboyant and ludicrous Fancy Dress Saturday where all inhibitions and sanity are lost in a world of eccentricity, this year’s theme to be announced very soon…
Kendal Calling is an award-winning, innovative, independent festival based in the Lake District. It features pioneering contemporary music and art alongside traditional rural entertainment. Possibly the most fun you can have in the countryside, with fields full of activities and attractions for everyone from families to stag parties!
Come and join us for a weekend of festivity and escapism in the fresh country air.
The capacity is small and intimate so you won’t be herded around like cattle or spend hours in queues at the bar. Feel the freedom of being able to move between the 8 performance stages in a matter of minutes and never miss an artist.
Kendal Calling is all about fun the old fashioned way, great times, great entertainment and great friends all in one place!
