STANDON CALLING - JOIN THE PARTY!
2nd of May 2018
The dates are set, the headliners are booked and the tents are waiting to be pitched; Standon Calling is ready for another unforgettable year. From 26th to 29th July festival lovers can unite in the beautiful grounds of Standon Lordship, Hertfordshire for a weekend of music and more.
Those who have been before are keen to call Standon Calling exactly what it is, an experience like no other. It takes all the best bits of a festival and mixes in its own unique extras. At the top of the list is the festival pool, available for partiers to cool off in when they wish to take a break from dancing. The goodies don’t stop there! Valuing their attendees wellbeing, the festival has also been known to offer yoga, hot tubs and massage tents – this year’s wellbeing treats are yet to be announced but are sure to be loved! Standon is also unique in allowing ticketholders to bring their dogs along with them, entertaining the fury friends with waggiest tail and ‘looks most like owner’ competitions.
This year’s line-up is huge with Paloma Faith, George Ezra and Bryan Ferry headlining the main stage. Others making an appearance include The Horrors, The Amazons, Akala, Ibibio, Tokio Myers and many more. For those who are seeking something more electronic there are some great acts for you too with 2MANYDJS, Hot Chip Megamix, George Fitzgerald (live), Elderbook, DJ Yoda (live) to name a few. There are still acts waiting to be announced so keep your ears open.
If you and your family are looking for entertainment beyond the all of the above the festival has yet more to offer. There will be comedy acts including Lucy Porter and Kerry Godliman; Rockaoke; a music quiz; a swing dance area. The costume parade and competition is back again, this year of which is themed ‘The Future’. Little festival goers are also well catered for with live shows from Horrible Histories, performance from Andy and the Odd Socks, a woodland tribe play area and much more!
