Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Kasabian, Royal Blood and Blossoms are the headliners for Kendall Calling 2023.
The summer spectacle returns to Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District from July 27 to July 30, with over 100 performances over the four days.
Nile – who last performed with CHIC at the festival in 2019 – said: “The last time we played Kendall Calling was epic and one of my favorite shows ever. We’re excited to be back this year for more good times! “
Kaiser Chiefs, Rick Astley, Happy Mondays, Frank Turner, Example and more are also on the schedule.
No fewer than 20,000 festival-goers have already registered for the presale, the BBC reports.
Festival co-founders Andy Smith and Ben Robinson said: “After an absolutely brilliant festival last year, we can’t wait to get back to those fields! With Kasabian, Royal Blood, Blossoms, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Kaiser Chiefs, Rick Astley, Annie Mac – the line-up looks absolutely stacked. Now all we need is a little sun and we’re having the perfect weekend!”
Tim Burgess – who is best known as the frontman of The Charlatans – will be playing a special solo set and his Tim Peaks Diner is ready to play host to even more secret sets.
He said: “Kendal Calling has always been a favorite of The Charlatans – and even more so because Tim Peaks has been there since 2012 and made me feel part of the family. Looking forward to going back there in July, got me a solo performance, some listening parties, a DJ set and maybe a few surprises too.”
The festival returned last year after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2022 edition featured headliners from Supergrass, Stereophonics and Bastille.
