The basics

Kendal Calling combines live music, fairground attractions, markets and a unique atmosphere at one of the quirkiest and coolest small festivals around.

The festival

Kendal Calling is the kind of festival you could only put on in England. Set in the rolling green fields of the Lake District, it brings together bands and artists large and small, along with a huge host of other attractions for an independent-spirited festival.

First hosted in 2006, the festival has seen a steady rise in popularity year on year, winning the Best Small Festival award in 2010 and 2011 and Best Medium Festival in 2013. Performers in past years include Basement Jaxx, Calvin Harris, Feeder, Public Enemy and Echo and the Bunnymen to name a few, and this 2014's lineup, which included Frank Turner, Example, De La Soul, Zane Lowe and plenty more.

As well as music, Kendal Calling is all about creating a unique vibe. It’s choc-full of fairground rides, markets, food and drink events and artwork from independent artists.

Our tip

For a bit of culture to go with the music, check out the Late Night Cinema – a pop-up space where films are screened under the stars.
