Goldfrapp in second wave of names for Kendal Calling.
Returning in 2020 to mark its 15th birthday, Kendal Calling is shaping up to be a true highlight of the festival summer with an unmissable weekend of entertainment for all ages. Packed with stunning headliners, the best in singalong favourites and a true festival experience nestled in the gorgeous Lake District. With the likes of headliners Foals, Stereophonics, Supergrass and Primal Scream already confirmed, more must-see names are set to leave their mark on a birthday party like no other this summer.
New Names Announced
Effortlessly cool and undeniably iconic, Goldfrapp have become an electric powerhouse lead by the distinct presence of Alison Goldfrapp herself. Across a nearly 20 year career, their immediate synth-pop sounds have pushed the boundaries of electronic music – with the likes of ‘Ride A White Horse’, ‘Ooh La La’ and ‘Number 1’ ready-made for big festival moments. Taking the stage at Kendal Calling this year, be ready to be drawn into an unfiltered world of swirling pop perfection.
Evolving into one of the most cherished Manchester bands of recent times, The Slow Readers Club are set to be a true highlight at this year’s Kendal Calling. After stepping in at the last minute to deliver a blistering set last year on the Calling Out Stage, the sheer demand to see their unbridled live show means their return for Kendal’s 15th birthday was inevitable.
Hailed by critics for their offbeat and eccentric indie style, Feet will bring their aptly titled debut album ‘What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham?’ for a bonkers live party that needs to be seen to be believed, while Scottish indie blazers Retro Video Club will be putting their foot down with an amplified kick to Lowther Deer Park. With the likes of Stanleys, Marie White, Lindsay Munroe also announced today, Kendal Calling continues to add to a phenomenal lineup perfect for the festival summer and its 15th Birthday celebrations.

Also topping the bill, one-liner maestro Gary Delaney will head to the Lake District this year for a set packed with more jokes a minute than the Lowther Deer Park has ever seen before.
