After the government announced its roadmap plan for the gradual end of lockdown, a flurry of festivals rushed to let us know whether they were going to be opening their doors (and fields) to eager music fans, wanting to get their festival fix. Amongst the announcements was Standon Calling, which has confirmed that it will go ahead, taking place 22-25th July 2021, celebrating it’s 15th birthday!
This family (and dog) friendly festival takes place in the Hertfordshire village of Standon and sees an eclectic mix of music, art and poetry, comedy and family entertainment and combines it with a costume parade, dog show, swimming pools and more…
Previous headliners have included the likes of Paloma Faith, George Ezra, Rag N’ Bone Man and the main stage has even been graced with the presence of Lewis Capaldi. This year’s headliners include Pop Sins favs Bastille, plus Primal Scream and Hot Chip. Check out this year’s full line-up below:
Speaking about the return of the festival, Festival Founder and Director Alex Trenchard said:
“It brings me incredible joy and happiness to announce the return of Standon Calling. It’s no secret that the past year has been an incredibly tough one not just for the festival world, but for all of us longing to return to some degree of normality and longing to celebrate and dance together once again. This year’s festival is more important than ever, with all of us at Standon Calling determined to bring a summer festival experience full of entertainment and memories to the fields once again. This year’s lineup is my favourite to date, from huge headliners to some of the most exciting new sounds/artists going and the return of some huge family highlights from over the years – I can’t wait to welcome you all this summer”.
