Fan-favourite, award-winning festival Kendal Calling announced a huge lineup for their 2018 festival and it has now SOLD OUT for the 13th consecutive year.

Catfish and the BottlemenThe LibertinesRun DMC and Hacienda Classical will be headlining with a great supporting bill all heading to the fields this summer for an unmissable weekend of music, arts, comedy, food and drink in the beautiful Lake District.

However! If you missed out on a ticket, there is a resale going on today and tomorrow (4th July) here but you will have to be quick as there won’t be many left.

Set in the attractive Lake District’s Lowther Deer Park, this innovative, fan-focused, independent festival is renowned for more than just music, and visitors will also enjoy four days of arts installations, comedy, gourmet food, kid’s entertainment and a real ale festival all within the confines of what is surely the most beautiful festival site in the UK.

Catfish and the Bottlemen’s rise to the top has been nothing short of stratospheric. Sophomore effort The Ride saw them establish themselves as one of the true stars of the burgeoning British guitar scene and this summer they head back to the fields for a headline set that’s not to be missed.

True heroes of indie and a band who were sorely missed during their lengthy absence, The Libertines will be making a long overdue trip to Kendal Calling. Having reformed and re-established themselves as kings of their genre, Pete, Carl, Gary and John will be bringing anthems from their three huge albums to the fields!

The term legends is thrown around far too often but one group to which it undoubtedly applies are hip-hop royalty Run DMC. With an arsenal of huge hits including It’s Like ThatMy Adidas and Its Tricky under their belts, it’s hard to see who could provide a bigger sing along moment at this year’s Kendal Calling.

Kicking proceedings off on the Thursday night is a special show from Hacienda Classical with the Manchester Camerata, the city’s experimental orchestra playing a new set of huge classics.

Festival Director, Andy Smith told us “We’re thrilled to be heading into our 13th year and can’t wait to head back to the beautiful Lake District for another weekend of music, art, food and a couple of Kend-ales.”

However, the headliners are not the ‘be all and end all’ of this festival, it is always the impressive undercard of an eclectic lineup where indie legends rub shoulders with some of the freshest new talent that the UK has to offer.
