Courteeners, Doves, Manic Street Preachers and more will play the 2019 festival in the Lake District between 25 and 28 July.
After selling out for thirteen years in a row, Kendal Calling has announced its 2019 line-up.
Courteeners, Doves, Manic Street Preachers, Nile Rodgers & Chic and Orbital will headline the four-day weekend of music, arts, comedy, food and drink at the Lake District’s Lowther Deer Park between 25 and 28 July 2019.
Courteeners are set to release a new album soon, so the announcement of their headline slot is timely, while Doves return from hiatus to play the festival for the first time in nine years.
Manic Street Preachers made their debut at Kendal Calling in 2017 and were keen to repeat the experience "as soon as possible".
Legends Nile Rodgers and Chic will be at the festival to provide the ultimate disco playlist - plus a bevy of Rodgers’ classic songs produced for artists such as Madonna and David Bowie - while techno giants Orbital will be unloading a massive set of dance bangers complete with a stunning visual show.
Kendal Calling takes place at Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District between 25 and 28 July 2019. As well as music, the festival includes four days of arts installations, comedy, cabaret, cinema, magic, kids’ entertainment, gourmet food and real ale.
