The sun is beating down as you sip another ice-cold pint, surrounded by the Lake District’s iconic fells and some of the biggest bands in the UK.
For almost 20 years, Kendal Calling has attracted some of the most famous artists to one of the world’s best loved national parks. Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers, Calvin Harris, Snoop Dogg, Noel Gallagher, The Charlatans and Tom Grennan are among the top names to have lit up Lowther Deer Park since the festival’s inception in 2006 – and the list goes on!
The sound waves emanating from the main stage and the thousands singing along almost reach our Ullswater Heights park, located just 20 minutes away. But far from being a party paradise, it provides an oasis of calm amongst an otherwise lively weekend.
Aside from the tunes, Kendal Calling also plays host to its own Oktoberfest (in July!), family friendly entertainment including picture shows and circus workshops, ale festival and lots and lots of foods from across the globe.
There will also be several stages set up to suit every taste and almost every genre – let’s just hope the famous Lake District weather plays its part in making it a weekend to remember, too.
This year, Kasabian, Mel C, Nike Rodgers & Chic, Scouting for Girls, Example and Kaiser Chiefs are among the big-time bands and artists set to play the festival making it another Kendall Calling not to be missed.
Tickets for Kendal Calling 2023 are still available and we still have some lodges up for grabs for anyone wanting to celebrate one of the biggest weekends in the Cumbrian calendar. Book your Kendal Calling stay here.
Shuttle buses to the site will be running from nearby Penrith North Lakes Railway Station and pre-booked car parking is also available on-site.
Kendal Calling 2023 takes place between Thursday 27th and Sunday 30th July.
