Standon Calling announces lineup
Standon Calling is pulling out all the stops with the first announcement for 2016, taking place at the Hertfordshire festival, 29th – 31st July. It returns to its stunning manor grounds setting, inviting thousands of friends, families and festival lovers to gather for a magical weekend of live music & DJs, fancy dress, swimming and day to night hedonism.
Joining the festival’s 11th edition will be the legendary Suede, along with Grammy-winning vocals of Jess Glynne, the multi-talented musician and part-time chef Kelis will be bringing all the boys (and girls) to the yard. Flying the flag for electronic music is house pioneer and legendary DJ, Theo Parrish. GOLDIE who was recently awarded an MBE for his contribution to UK music also joins the fray along with Dan Deacon, Gold Panda, Luke Abbott. Standon Calling’s own night club, the Cowshed, returns to keep the party going well into the early hours. Seminal label Hospitality are onboard behind the decks for a special one night takeover and Sink The Pink’s naughty little sister Savage Disco will take the helm for another night that promises plenty of camp hilarity.
What started as a birthday BBQ and DJs with a handful of friends has become the perfect overgrown house party, offering renowned and upcoming acts, immersive theatre, a host of weird and wonderful workshops, talks, the annual dog show, a fancy dress parade and of course its own heated outdoor swimming pool. 2016 is already shaping up to be a special year with plenty more to be announced soon.
