– The Independent


With a decade-long résumé of sellout events, featuring international talent at an unrivalled Lake District location, Kendal Calling has matured into a flagship festival in the UK. Launched by From the Fields co-directors Ben Robinson and Andy Smith, this multi award-winning event has steadily grown from an intimate gathering of 900 to a leading, multi-genre music and arts festival of 25,000. During this time, the likes of Mumford & Sons, Calvin Harris, Blondie, Dizzee Rascal, Elbow, Snoop Dogg, Vaccines and many more have graced the fields, alongside an immeasurable number of other up and coming acts and artists. Kendal Calling enjoys a remarkably diverse, growing and dedicated fanbase, and demand for tickets continues to rise each year. While the size and shape of Kendal Calling has changed over time, its values remain the same: innovation, creativity, and a core commitment to improving festival-goer experience.
