Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to headline Kendal Calling

The four-day festival will also feature Rudimental and The Charlatans

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline this year’s Kendal Calling festival.

The four-day festival takes place at Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District between July 28-31.

The eleventh edition of the event will also feature other headliners in Rudimental, The Charlatans and Madness.

Festival founder Ben Robinson said of Gallagher’s booking: “My first gig in a field was Loch Lomond watching Oasis twenty years ago. That moment defined my youth and calling in the years to follow. Noel’s songwriting has soundtracked the lives of millions over the last two decades; it’s with great pride that we’re able to bring those anthems and his new hits to the fields of Kendal Calling.”

The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess will also bring his Tim Peaks Diner to the festival. In a statement, he said: “As ever, I’m really looking forward to Kendal Calling. The sixth year in a row for me, the second time The Charlatans will have headlined and this year is the fifth year for Tim Peaks. It’s going to be an extra special four days. See you there!”
