Meanwhile, Stereophonics recently completed work on their 10th album.

Speaking to NME about what to expect from this weekend, frontman Kelly Jones said: “I’ve never been to Kendal Calling,. We try to do new festivals and I’ve heard that this one has won a lot of awards and people are really into it. We do all the big ones, like V, but a lot of festivals are changing into a pop format at the moment, so we have to be careful where we slot ourselves in. I’m looking forward to seeing Slaves and Brian Wilson. It doesn’t seem to be limiting itself to anything, which is good.”
