KENDAL Calling has revealed its line-up for the 2020 festival.

The festival is in its 15th year and organisers have made sure a number of festival favourites, including some past headliners, are on the bill to make it a special anniversary.

Headline acts over the four nights include Primal Scream, Foals, Stereophonics and Supergrass.

Other major acts include Blossoms, Craig David presents TS5, the Kooks, Dizzee Rascal, You me at Six, DMA's, Johnny Marr, Shaggy, Sister Sledge, The Zutons, Pale Waves, Easy Life, Jade Bird, The Magic Gang, Sundara Karma, Marika Hackman, Heather Small and The Murder Capital.

And this year for the first time the festival, taking place at Lowther Deer Park near Penrith from Thursday, July 30, to Sunday August 2, will have comedy on the main stage in the shape of Bill Bailey.

Festival Director, Andy Smith said: “This is it! This is our most staggering lineup yet, to celebrate our 15-year journey. We have been trying to get Foals on the bill for many years,

and it’s long been a dream to have Supergrass and their very large back catalogue of hits joining us - the first album I ever bought! But what would a birthday party be without old friends? We are happy campers indeed knowing that Stereophonics, Primal Scream and Dizzee Rascal will be joining us in the fields.

"The music is only part of the fun - this year more than any other we’re really ramping up immersive activities and games right across the park and very excited to be announcing a whole lineup of new areas, venues, activities and events over the coming months. Roll on summer!”

Excited to join Kendal’s birthday proceedings, Bill Bailey said: “I’m delighted to be playing the 15th Kendal Calling. This will be my first time at this great festival. I love performing to new crowds, and I love the Lakes so this is the perfect combo for me!”

Since beginning life in 2006, Kendal Calling has stood as a jewel in the UK festival crown - leading the way when it comes to the booming festival summer and consistently delivering unforgettable memories and moments.

Topping fan wish-lists for years now, nobody can headline a festival quite like Foals. The Oxford troop have scorched their way to the very top. Expanding on their critically revered catalogue last year with the release of ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1’ and ‘Part 2’, it’s signalled the creative boom of a band who refuse to rest on their laurels.

Scooping BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations over the past year, constantly demanded by Kendal fans over the years and with an earth shaking live show in their back pocket, their headline appearance at Kendal Calling 2020 is bound to go down in festival history.

Stereophonics sit as one of the UK’s most successful bands of the past 25 years, scoring number one after number one with their ready-made anthems and euphoric live shows. Led by Kelly Jones, one of the great British songwriters, their headline turn in 2017 stands as one of the greatest in festival history - and with new album ‘Kind’ continuing their run of number one albums at the end of 2019, they were the first band to call to soundtrack Kendal Calling’s 15th birthday.

Expect soaring singalongs to ring out as the returning Supergrass make their Kendal Calling debut, celebrating 25 years since the Oxford outfit's Mercury-nominated No.1 debut album release 'I Should Coco'. Expect a career-spanning Greatest Hits set to be blaring from the rafters as their anticipated reunion rolls into Kendal Calling 2020.

One of the UK’s most beloved bands, Primal Scream have been reinventing themselves for over 30 years. In the form of Bobby Gillespie, they possess one of rock music’s most vital frontmen - becoming an unrivalled live voice with a catalogue of era-defining anthems. Celebrated in their recent singles compilation ‘Maximum Rock & Roll’, the likes of ‘Movin On Up’, ‘Loaded’, ‘Rock’, ‘Country Girl’, ‘Come Together’ and more are bound to sound extra special when they return to the Kendal Calling main stage this summer.

And at the new Afterglow area (previously Glow Tent), expect the biggest in bass and beats with a dance party that rings late into the night. Drum and bass titan Andy C heads things up, with appearances from a who’s who in famed party starters. From Hannah Wants, Jungle (DJ Set), Craig Charles, 808 State, Dub Phizik & Strategy, Jaguar Skills, Emerald and a very special DJ Yoda: History Of Gaming set amongst others - the bright lights and sounds of Afterglow ring large again for Kendal Calling’s 15th birthday.
