The Streets, Supergrass, Stereophonics and Dizzee Rascal will be headlining Kendal Calling’s belated 15th birthday celebrations.
As with festival across the UK Kendal Calling wasn’t immune to the COVID pandemic and cancelled its 2020 festival.
But after a year out Kendal Calling is back with a huge line up and it was announced today, Friday March 26.
Kicking off on July 29 and running until August 1, the Cumbrian music festival will also have the likes of Craig David Presents TS5, The Kooks, Blossoms, DMA’s, Tom Grennan, Frank Turner, Bill Bailey, Pale Waves, Sundara Karma, Joel Corry, Scouting For Girls, Alfie Templeman and The Sherlocks joining the main headliners.
Speaking about the return of Kendal Calling in 2021, Festival Co-Founders Andy Smith and Ben Robinson said: “It’s a great feeling to be able to announce the return of Kendal Calling in 2021.
“Not being able to celebrate together in the fields last year has only heightened anticipation for our return this July with a lineup that truly captures what Kendal Calling is all about.
“It’s an honour to welcome back The Streets to headline this year’s show, along with Supergrass, Stereophonics and Dizzee Rascal all ready to make new festival memories – as well as massive names like Craig David’s TS5, Blossoms, The Kooks, DMA’s and Tom Grennan to name but a few.
“It’s sure to be an unforgettable moment stepping back into Lowther Deer Park this July and we can’t wait to have you all join us.”
Stereophonics seem to be a perfect fit to headline the festival in its grand comeback – the band headlining the 2017 festival still stands as one of the favourites in Kendal Calling history.
The Streets are sure to make their time on the stage a celebration, while Supergrass are actually going to be making their debut at the Cumbrian festival.
Dizzee Rascal has been confirmed to be officially kicking off the festival as the Thursday night headliner – perhaps it’ll be a bonkers night (see what we did there).
Lastly, The Lancashire Hotpots will be taking their place as the unofficial Kendal Calling house band, once again.
More bands are set to be announced over the coming weeks.
