Other lineup additions for the July 25-28 festival include Echo & The Bunnymen, IDLES, Lewis Capaldi, The Go! Team, Kate Nash, The Big Moon, and The Joy Formidable.

The festival’s 2018 edition saw performances from the likes of George EzraPaloma Faith, and Shame.

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.”
