The theme for this year is ‘Kendal Calling goes to the Arcade‘, said to feature “said to feature “over 50 retro arcade games, an immersive games parade, legendary characters and crazy challengers”. Organisers encourage attendees to dress to the theme each year , with dinosaurs invading the site last year as part of ‘Kendal Calling goes Jurassic‘.

Tonight’s announcement was originally scheduled for Monday but was delayed with organisers saying more artists were being added.

As part of an effort to go plastic-free, Kendal Calling gave away 10,000 reusable water bottles last year in partnership with United Utilities. A fans group on Facebook, ‘Kendal’s Calling You‘, often raises thousands of pounds for charity selling custom wristbands ahead of the festival.

Kendal Calling returns to it’s beautiful Lake District home at Lowther Deer Park from Thursday 30th July to Sunday 2nd August 2020. Tickets go on sale at 6pm Thursday 30th January, with a presale taking place earlier in the day.
