See huge headliners at Kendal Calling

Penrith, Cumbria

Kendal Calling is the most fun you can have in the countryside with fields full of activities and attractions.

This music festival was started in 2006 by a group of music lovers and it has gone on to be one of the best award-winning festivals based in the Lake District.

As well as world class music, there are a number of other attractions on offer including a children’s area, a real ale festival, and the Happy Slap Boutique for weird, surreal shows and much more.

Retreat to the aptly-named Garden of Eden for a back, foot and shoulder massage, or even a spot of yoga, when you need a break from things, and for festivalgoers looking for a little luxury, the Deer Lodge is the place to stay – take your pick from Bell Tents, Tipis, Yurts and Podpads.
