Kendal Calling is an intimate and boutique UK music festival set in the beautiful surroundings of Cumbria’s Lake District.

Each summer Kendal Calling curates a diverse lineup that spans across the genres, taking in rock, indie and dance music, while also laying on a wide range of food and drink, as well as quirky art installations, pop-up bars, a market, and a cinema.

What’s more, Kendal Calling is also a perfect festival to take the family to, thanks to its dedicated kid’s area that’ll be showcasing all kinds of entertainment throughout the weekend.

Kendal Calling 2021 was postponed to 2022, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets will automatically roll over to the 2022 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
