Standon Calling is a boutique music and arts festival. Starting life as a birthday garden party in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, the event has blossomed and evolved over the years. Now held across four jam-packed days in July, many festival goers return year after year.

You can always expect the Standon Calling line-up to be full of big names as well as emerging artists. Past years have brought headliners such as Rag’n’Bone Man, Lewis Capaldi, George Ezra and Grace Jones alongside the hottest newcomers. Early editions of the festival featured the likes of Florence + the Machine, Bastille and IDLES when they were at the start of their careers.

Standon Calling is famous for its friendly atmosphere and family programme. There are plenty of activities for everyone from babies to teens. In addition, you’ll find top comedy acts, interactive workshops, inspiring talks and dancing all night. That’s not to mention an incredible array of food and carnival rides – plus hot tubs, a swimming pool and much more!

Enjoy the festival to its fullest with Standon Calling’s wide-ranging camping options. From general, family and quiet campsites to boutique camping and Lavish Lands, there’s something for every taste.

What’s more, each summer Standon Calling boasts a fun new theme and attendees are known for going all out during the annual costume parade. Dogs are welcome too, so prepare to be charmed by the annual dog show.
