KENDAL Calling has announced its second wave of artists to perform at the three-day festival.

Among the 60 new acts announced are Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin, Frightened Rabbit, Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene, Lewis Watson, Admiral Fallow and Norma Jean Martine.

Over fifty other acts have been confirmed to join headliners Suede and Frank Turner And The Sleeping Souls and other artsists including De La Soul, 2manydjs, Happy Mondays and Miles Kane.

Jimi Goodwin makes a welcome return to Kendal Calling having headlined the festival with his band Doves in 2010. 

Jimi’s new solo album ‘Odludek’ was released this week and is a remarkable record on which he plays almost all the instruments himself. 

Glasgow’s Frightened Rabbit bring ringing, resonant, skyscraping guitars and songs full of heartbreak whilst Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene will play an intimate acoustic set in the Woodlands.



The epic indie folk of Admiral Fallow finds a perfect home at the beautiful Kendal Calling site and Doves are further represented in a performance from Black Rivers which is made up of Jez and Andy from the band. 

Lewis Watson is a 21 year old acoustic guitar troubadour who is destined for the big time.

Norma Jean Martine’s rootsy, soulful, country music has seen her explode onto the folk scene while Team Me provide bouncy Norwegian indie-pop. 

Local artists among the new acts announced include Molly Warburton and Colt 45.
