July festivals: Kendal Calling
Kendal Calling is the most fun you can have in the countryside with fields full of activities and attractions.
Started in 2006 by a group of music lovers, Kendal Calling has gone on to win awards and become one of the highlights of the year in the Lake District.
Putting aside the world-class music line-up for a second, there are a number of attractions on offer including a children’s area, a real ale festival, and the Happy Slap Boutique for weird, surreal shows and much more.
Of course, the music is also a vital part of Kendal Calling's lineup with a range of top British and international acts taking the stage every year.
Need a break from the music? Retreat to the aptly-named Garden of Eden for a back, foot and shoulder massage, or even a spot of yoga. Festivalgoers looking for a little luxury should book into the Deer Lodge area of the site – take your pick from Bell Tents, Tipis, Yurts and Podpads.
Kendal Calling 2022 takes place between 28-31 July. Weekend tickets and glamping bundles are available now.
