Speaking last November about the return of the festival – which was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 – Kendal Calling co-founders Andy Smith and Ben Robinson said that the event’s upcoming 2022 instalment “is three years in the making”.
“Organising festivals is never easy, yet despite the false starts and setbacks encountered we have never been more geared up as we prepare for the festival of a lifetime,” they added in a joint statement.
“We are so very proud to announce our largest bill to date, keeping as many of those favourites you all booked for many moons ago while adding a bunch of big acts we have been working to bring to the fields for many years. It’s a marvellous medley of our favourite musicians and we’re so very excited to share them with you.”
