Friday, 29 March 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Reverend and the Makers, Don Broco (pictured) and the Pigeon Detectives are among the new names announced for this year's Kendal Calling.

For its 14th instalment the four-day festival will again take over Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District between July 25 and 28. The event boasts an electic musical bill, as well as an impressive line up of arts, comedy, food and drink. Formed in 2006, it has grown from a 900 capacity event to attracting crowds of over 13,000.

Last year was headlined by Catfish and the Bottlemen, Run DMC, the Libertines and Haçienda Classiçal, while the 2019 bill will be topped by the Courteeners, Doves, Manic Street Preachers, Nile Rodgers & Chic, and Orbital.

Festival Director, Andy Smith commented:

"We're thrilled to be heading into our 14th year with no less than five headliners! From anticipated headline slots, to Kendal Calling favourites, legendary sing-along dance anthems & spotlight spectacles, this year’s line-up is one of our most diverse yet, allowing us to bring huge headliners to the fields of Cumbria, as well as exciting female fronted-bands, and shining new stars, amongst the rest of the magic that is sprinkled across the festival site, from art installations, to comedy, cabaret, gourmet food, real ale and so much more!

We cannot wait to welcome our Kendal-Callers, new & old back to the fields for an unforgettable weekend amongst the rolling hills, one which we hope will allow you to create lasting memories amongst your friends, family & new festival acquaintances.

The countdown is officially on – we’ll see you in the fields!"
