It will be the Wolf Alice’s second headline set after Margate’s By The Sea in 2018, and follows a successful year for the band who scooped the 2018 Mercury Music Prize for ‘Visions of a Life’.
Reflecting on the latest wave of new acts announced, founder and festival director Alex Trenchard said: “Every year at Standon Calling we want to bring an experience and show that people will never forget. This year, I feel we’ve done that and more, with one of my favourite bands of the past decade Wolf Alice and one of my favourite bands of all time Nile Rodgers & CHIC topping the bill in 2019.
“From top to bottom there’s something for everyone, and we’re excited to welcome everyone for an incredible weekend this July.”
Tickets for Standon Calling 2019 are on sale now.
