This year, Kendal’s Glow Stage will be headlined by DJ sets from Leftfield, Caribou State and High Contrast.

Courteeners will appear at Kendal Calling for the first time, whilst Doves will play their first set at Kendal since 2010. The Manic Street Preachers return to Kendal once again, their last appearance being in 2017. Disco legends Chic and Nile Rogers will also headline, as will famed dance duo Orbital.

The festival also includes a wide-array of female-fronted acts, including Dream Wife, The Big Moon, Blood Red Shoes, The Joy Formidable and Zuzu.

Kendal Calling’s festival Director Andy Smith said: “We’re thrilled to be heading into our 14th year with no less than five headliners! From anticipated headline slots, to Kendal Calling favourites, legendary sing-along dance anthems & spotlight spectacles, this year’s line-up is one of our most diverse yet, allowing us to bring huge headliners to the fields of Cumbria, as well as exciting female fronted-bands, and shining new stars.”

He added: “We cannot wait to welcome our Kendal-Callers, new & old back to the fields for an unforgettable weekend amongst the rolling hills, one which we hope will allow you to create lasting memories amongst your friends, family and new festival acquaintances.”

Tickets for the event will go on sale on Thursday, 31 January at 10am and will cost £148. Fans can also secure tickets for £39 and pay the rest of the money before May. There is also a pre-sale at 10am today, Wednesday, 30 January.
