Speaking about the return of Kendal Calling in 2022, Festival Co-Founders Andy Smith and Ben Robinson said “Here we go! 2022’s festival is three years in the making – oganising festivals is never easy, yet despite the false starts and setbacks encountered we have never been more geared up as we prepare for the festival of a lifetime.

“We are so very proud to announce our largest bill to date, keeping as many of those favourites you all booked for many moons ago while adding a bunch of big acts we have been working to bring to the fields for many years. It’s a marvellous medley of our favourite musicians and we’re so very excited to share them with you. We promise it’s going to be a memorable one, from amazing headliners such as The Streets and Stereophonics, to amazing live favourites such as The Wombats, Tom Grennan, Amy Macdonald and Gabrielle to name but a few. There’s truly something for everyone at Kendal Calling next year, and we can’t wait to be together FINALLY once again!”

A limited number of weekend tickets not carried over from 2020 are now on sale. Kendal Calling takes place between 28th and 31st July 2022 in Lowther Deer Park.
