This includes stars of the main stage, Tim Peaks’ biggest-ever Kendal Calling billing, new names from the best in new music for Calling Out, dazzling world music from Chai Wallahs and laugh-out-loud comedy acts for The Soapbox. Hailed by some as ‘the mini-Glastonbury of the North’, Kendal Calling is headlined this year by five unmissable acts Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paolo Nutini, The Streets, Paul Heaton with guest singer Rianne Downey, and Keane, along with hundreds of other artists for festival goers to wrap their ears around.

Over four days, forty thousand festival goers will gather once again in the fields as Kendal Calling transforms into Cumbria’s third largest town. The ultimate festival gathering, Kendal Calling is filled with otherworldly entertainment and escapism designed to intrigue, surprise and entertain all ages. Kendal Calling will take place from 1 – 4 August 2024 and tickets are on sale now.

Joining the Kendal Calling line up is Lucy Spraggan who made a much anticipated comeback releasing her latest album last August. Plus, hot off collaborations with Rudimental and Turno, Charlotte Plank who’s been tipped by the likes of NME and Zane Lowe heads to Lowther, as well as Sugababes, The Snuts, Feeder and British youth counterculture rockers Bilk. Midas Touch hitmaker ADMT, Alfie Jukes who releases his latest single Eyes Wide in January, as well as Future Utopia, and teen punk powerhouse HotWax will be heading to the Fields.

Tim Burgess said:

“I say it every year but I genuinely think this might be our best line up ever – to have A Certain Ratio playing live and to be making their set into an album is dream come true stuff for me.”

Calling Out is Kendal’s iconic music discovery stage which over the years has played host to some of the best up and coming music from across the globe as they embark on their journey to main stage status. Famously, the stage has played host to names such as Mumford & Sons, London Grammar and The 1975. This year some of the biggest upcoming artists are taking to the stage, with headliners Sundara Karma, The K’s and Peace joined by latest additions Benjamin Francis Leftwich and ADMT alongside Antony Szmeriek, BBY, Lauren Hibberd and Felix White’s new project, 86TVs.

Unique touring venue Chai Wallahs is back, confirming its status as the ultimate destination for all things world music, jazz, hip hop, reggae, funk and soul. For over 15 years, Chai Wallahs is where diverse sounds from across the globe unite to create unforgettable moments. This year, Chai Wallahs is set to host an impressive lineup of acts that will leave audiences spellbound. Among the headliners are Tom McGuire & The Brassholes, the acclaimed 8-piece soul/funk ensemble from Glasgow, ready to ignite the stage with their infectious energy. Joining them is Omega Nebula, delivering their signature high-spirited reggae beats and powerful basslines, ensuring an electrifying performance that will move the crowd. Chai Wallahs is set to welcome an array of talented bands and artists from across the globe, including The Allergies Live, Dr Meaker and Jamu, cementing itself as a must-visit for amazing sounds from across the globe accompanied by incredible pizza and atmosphere!

From some of the UK’s rip-roaring stand-up comics to the wild and wonderful spectacle of Drag Bingo, The Soapbox is home to all things entertainment! With an array of family friendly, and not so family friendly shows, there is something for all audiences. And today, Kendal reveals the first acts who’ll be taking to The Soapbox to surprise and delight festival goers, including Angelos Epithemiou, Olivia Lee, Jojo Sutherland, Micky P Kerr, Rich Wilson, Matt Bragg, Tadima Mahlunge, Danny McLoughlin, Phil Chapman, Dani Johns & Jenny Hart.
