Edwyn Collins to appear at Tim Burgess’ Tim Peaks Diner at Kendal Calling festival

The Charlatans man will also launch his own cereal, Totes Amazeballs, at the July event

Edwyn Collins, BEAK and DJ Dave Haslam will all appear at the Tim Peaks Diner at the Kendal Calling festival in July, where Tim Burgess of The Charlatans will also launch his own cereal, Totes Amazeballs.

The Britpop frontman will host his own area at the festival, where as well as hosting gigs, book readings, art, DJs and afternoon tea, he will be putting on breakfast daily, serving up the cereal he has made in conjunction with Kellogg’s.

Speaking recently to NME, he described the cereal as tasting like ‘Rocky Road’ and promised that it would help people beat their hangovers during festival season.


The Diner plays host to a DJ set from Edwyn Collins, who is taking part in a Q&A session on site, like Burgess, who is in conversation with DJ Dave Haslam. Haslam will be joining in with the Diner’s book readings, where Roy Wilkinson will be reading from his British Sea Power biography, Do It For Your Mum. BEAK are amongst the live acts due to perform at the Diner and Haircut 100 singer Nick Heyward will play an ‘afternoon tea’ show.

Kendal Calling takes place from July 27-29 at Lowther Deer Park, Hackthorpe in The Lake District. All profits from the Tim Peaks Diner will go to the David Lynch Foundation. Elsewhere, the bill will see sets from Dizzee Rascal, Maximo Park, We Are Scientists and The View.
