KENDAL Calling has revealed the first acts for this summer’s festival, with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Rudimental, Madness and The Charlatans announced as headliners.
Also confirmed for the four day event at Lowther Deer Park are Craig David, Sugarhill Gang, The Darkness, Everything Everything, Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Hives and We Are Scientists.
One of Manchester’s finest musical sons Noel Gallagher will be bringing a catalogue of festival-ready anthems to the fields with his High Flying Birds.
Expect cuts from his two hugely acclaimed solo records plus some old favourites as a genuine musical icon graces the Lake District with his mighty anthems.
Chart-topping drum and bass crossover kings Rudimental’s high octane, party sets have cemented their reputation as one of the best live acts around.
Celebrating 40 years since their formation, London legends Madness are the ultimate sing along band and their hit laden set is sure to include the likes of ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘One Step Beyond’ and ‘Our House’.
A year on from their triumphant return with landmark album ‘Modern Nature’ and five years on from the founding of singer Tim Burgess’ festival favourite Tim Peaks Diner, The Charlatans return to Kendal Calling.
Tim Burgess, Charlatans singer and founder of Tim Peaks Diner comments: "As ever, I'm really looking forward to Kendal Calling. The sixth year in a row for me, the second time The Charlatans will have headlined and this year is the fifth year for Tim Peaks. It's going to be an extra special four days.”
