Kendal Calling has announced its return after two cancelled years.

From July 28 to July 30, 2022, more than 250 artists will grace the stages of Kendal Calling, including singers, bands, DJs and comedians.

Stereophonics, The Streets, and Supergrass will headline the festival.

Other highlights include Craig David Presents TS5, The Wombats, The Kooks and The Vaccines.

DJs wills play at the event including Andy C and Faithless.

Other forms of entertainment are also on offer, including comedians Bill Bailey and Shaparak Khorsandi.

Speaking about their headline slot at Kendal Calling 2022, Stereophonics said: “We played Kendal Calling in 2017. It’s a great festival on a beautiful site with a fantastic crowd.

"We really enjoyed playing it back then and we can’t wait to headline the Saturday night next summer. See you there!”

The festival, which will take place at Lowther Deer Park, is organised by two men, who have faced disappointment for two years in a row over cancellations.

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!"

Weekend tickets can be bought directly from the Kendal Calling website.
