adidas astro trainers Kendal Calling 2018 lineup announced
Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Libertines, Run DMC and Hacienda Classical will be headlining with a supporting bill all heading to the fields this summer for an unmissable weekend of music, arts, comedy, food and drink in the beautiful Lake District, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With 2017 marking the 12th consecutive sell out for the festival and selling out just one week after announcing the lineup fans are encouraged to snap tickets up quickly to avoid disappointment.
True heroes of indie and a band who were sorely missed during their lengthy absence, The Libertines will be making a long overdue trip to Kendal Calling. Having reformed and re established themselves as kings of their genre, Pete, Carl, Gary and John will be bringing anthems from their threealbums to the fields!
The term legends is thrown around far too often but one group to which it undoubtedly applies are hip hop royalty Run DMC. With an arsenal of huge hits including ‘It’s Like That’, ‘My Adidas’ and ‘Its Tricky’ under their belts, it’s hard to see who could provide a bigger sing along moment at this year’s Kendal Calling.
Kicking proceedings off on the Thursday night is a special show from Hacienda Classical with the Manchester Camerata, the city’s experimental orchestra playing a new set of huge classics.
Festival Director, Andy Smith said:”We’re thrilled to be heading into our 13th year and can’t wait to head back to the beautiful Lake District for another weekend of music, art, food and a couple of Kend ales.
“We’re lucky to have one of our biggest lineups ever and can’t wait to welcome hip hop royalty Run DMC to the festival alongside our other headliners Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Libertines and Hacienda Classical. See you in the fields!”
Peter Hook, who will play with his band The Light, said: “I’ve always loved the Lake District and the opportunity to play with both my favorite acts, Hacienda Classical and The Light at Kendal Calling, coming there for the first time this year is really a dream come true. Who could possibly turn down double bubble.”
