Standon Calling Announces Fresh New Names Across Music, Comedy + Late Night Electronica for 2018 festival

Boasting incredible headline names and an unabashed programme of unrivalled entertainment for all the family, Standon Calling stands as the epitome of what a festival experience should be, continuing to unveil more monumental names for its biggest year to date.

Playing host to some of the best in the game, Standon Calling’s Lawn is the ultimate destination for comedy fans to get their daytime fix of comic stalwarts and sensational newcomers alike this summer. Leading the impressive comedy line up across the weekend is the infectious presence of Seann Walsh. Since making his debut on shows like Mock The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, he’s become a mainstay in British comedy – with his unrialled energy and razor-sharp punchlines taking him across the globe.

Also announced as a comedy headliner, renowned household name Lucy Porter, bringing her critically-acclaimed show to the Lordship for a side-splitting display set to showcase a comedian in her element. Revered favourite Kerry Godliman will also bring the laughs this July, taking her star turns on shows such as Live At The Apollo, and her own Radio 4 show, and bringing them to a set full of hilarity and observations on modern life.

These stellar headliners are supported by a huge range of rising and acclaimed names, including Rhys James, Spencer Jones, Cally Beaton, Glenn Moore, Owen Roberts, Jake Lambert and Jack Barry, with further hilarious moments from Marcel Lucont’s Whine List and Timberlina Presents FFS!! to ensure Standon Calling is packed full of top-draw comedy from start to finish.

Standon Calling also welcomes back their legendary Groove Garden party with performances by The Nextmen (Friday), The Reflex (Saturday) and Dr Packer (Sunday). UK drum & bass heavyweights Hospitality are also on hand to ensure the party never ends, with storming takeover sets from high-flyers London Elektricity, Fred V & Grafix, Etherwood, Hugh Hardie, Unglued, Metrik, Danny Byrd, Nu:Tone, Krakota and Keeno.

With eclectic party-throwers and Standon favourites Baron Goodlove & The Dreadful Noise, Uncle Funk & The Boogie Wonderland, The Haggis Horns and the Andy Grant Trio also on board, there’s something for everyone at Standon Calling this year.

Standon Calling is the full 360-degree festival experience. It is the biggest dog-friendly festival in the UK with an inimitable Dog Show, you can enjoy a mouth-watering array of stellar Food & Drink from London’s very best street food favourites, take a dip in the heated Swimming Pool, relax in the Hot Tubsor take part in a whole range of Wellbeing Classes and Workshops. Standon Calling is a trip into something more and an invitation for everyone to escape the world around them.

Now in its thirteenth year, Standon Calling offers a welcoming embrace to a weekend of music, arts, fun and pure festival joy. With an ever-growing and loyal audience from around the country, it’s a calling to an unparalleled and down-to-earth celebration that once a year pulls a community together.
