This event has been and gone.

Kendal Calling is an independent boutique music festival in Cumbria's beautiful Lake District, bringing a diverse selection of rock, indie and dance music to its intimate setting each summer.

The last edition's lineup was headlined by The Libertines, Run DMC and Catfish and the Bottlemen, while away from the music, festival-goers can enjoy a wide range of food and drink, as well as quirky art installations, pop-up bars, a market and a cinema.

Kendal Calling is also a family-friendly festival, hosting its very own kid's area, complete with all kinds of entertainment for the little ones, making the festival an ideal choice for a child's first festival.
