We don’t know about you, but with so many festivals to choose from and some of our favourites not on this year – STANDON CALLING (3-5 August) is a great choice. The site sits on the stunning Standon Lordship and also includes a swimming pool (for use for festival goers!). No corporate branding, 24 hr licence, unsigned acts tipping on being signed, Death In Vegas and Beardyman on the main stage this year, dance tents with a packed out DJ line up, creative going ons, fancy dress, folk/acoustic stage, literary tent, vintage stalls, an abundance of food delights on offer, a dog show and the landscape hand crafted by volunteers and locals that bring you into the theme this year – JOURNEY TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
Chu, the graffiti artist, renowned for his optical illusions and the master of his craft, has been commissioned to work his magic on the Cowshed and design the backdrop for the main stage this year – bringing in more creative talent to this year’s festival.
Standon Calling is only 40 minutes from central London.
Tickets from £25.
