Returning after the mammoth success of 2016’s weekend, Standon Calling is set to confirm itself as the definitive festival experience of the summer with a fresh batch of new additions joining a bill of musical icons, cutting-edge entertainment and fun for all the family.
Leading the newly announced names are acclaimed indie-kings Editors, bringing their dark-edged post-punk anthems to Standon Calling this summer. Across five studio albums, Editors have become one of the true cult sensations in British rock, with number one albums, monumental festival headlining slots and countless sell-out headline tours. Expect the distinctive vocal moods of frontman Tom Smith to soundtrack an unmistakable festival moment, when Editors point to their next exhilarating chapter at Standon Calling.
One of the most vital and influential voices in modern British music, Kate Tempest will continue her unprecedented rise with an appearance at this year’s Standon Calling. Delivering poetic and straight-to-the-bone tales of personal struggle and modern day society, Kate has become a vital voice of a generation, with latest album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ sitting as one of the most unique and multi-layered releases of 2016. Constantly creating and unafraid to shy away from real life truths, her appearance at Standon Calling this year is not to to be missed.
One of the most notable singer-songwriters of the last decade, Scottish-native KT Tunstall is set to bring her infectious folk blues and vintage indie rock sound to Standon Calling as her stunning renditions of ‘Suddenly I See’ and ‘Black Horse And The Cherry Tree’ are certain to be fan favourites across the summer weekend. In addition, Sheffield folk-pop favourites Slow Club are sure to deliver a spellbinding set of classics and new cuts alike following the release of third studio LP ‘One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Anymore’.
