KENDALL CALLING FESTIVAL has sold out a remarkable 11 weeks in advance of this year’s festival. Kendal Calling has sold out in each of its previous 8 years but this year’s sell out is the quickest yet, leaving the festival to also thank those festival goers who have snapped up tickets to the winner of the UK Festival Awards Best Medium Sized Festival in 2013.
This year’s festival features act such as Suede, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Example, De La Soul, 2manydjs, Frightened Rabbit, Clean Bandit, Happy Mondays, Miles Kane, Jimi Goodwin, Gorgon City, Ella Eyre and hundreds of other acts over three days in the stunning Lake District; indisputably one of the most beautiful festival sites in the world.
In a brief message, festival promoter Andy Smith said:
“We’ve sold out in record time…I’m in a transport of delight!
The festival is one of the highlights of the festival calendar featuring the Kendal Calling Goes Beyond The Stars fancy dress theme, Tim Peaks Diner, a real ale festival, gourmet food, a dedicated children’s Ladybird Arena, a diverse array or markets, the Garden Of Eden healing area, Q and A’s, talks and much more.
Having broken the world record for the most people dressed as Superman in one place in 2013, this year Kendal Calling revelers will attempt to break the world record for the most people moonwalking at the same time.
