About this festival
Standon Calling is an eclectic family-friendly festival. Starting out as a humble BBQ in 2004, the festival is now one of the UK's favourite boutique music festivals thanks to its diverse musical lineup and huge variety of extra activities for all ages.
Recent editions have seen sets from the likes of Grace Jones, Clean Bandit and Slaves alongside a side programme of comedy, theatre, crafts and workshops. Think everything from flamenco dancing through to voodoo rituals, all tied together under the festival's annual theme, which feeds into the artistic direction of the site.
What's more, Standon Calling is the only UK festival to boast its own swimming pool. It's not everyday you get to say that, eh.
