Half way to selling out already

Do we know if KC already have the capability to increase capacity next year within their licence ?

If so, by how much.

I'm guessing they do have the capability, but I've been told by an authoritative voice that the capacity won't be changing for next year.

Excellent. Thanks Neil.

Presented with such interest who wouldn't take advantage of the demand? 

I've heard figures from 25,000-35,000 for this year. It's always hard to guess, but I thought the top estimate was more accurate. There was a lot of people.

No Glastonbury and people avoiding Y Not there is a market there for Kendal Calling to be a big festival. 

Question is will they do that and is it what the regulars want?

I don't think they went past 30k this year, probably a thousand or so short of it, but you could see where the camp site and the arena had expanded when you looked around, theyve had a licence for around 3 years now to increase the capacity to about 35k but they always stated they wanted slight increases rather than just a major jump.

I could see another controlled increase next year to push the boundaries a little bit more but there's no way they'll jump all in at 35k, it would take a lot of rejigging the layout of camp sites and the arena plus a credible 2nd stage to contend with extra crowds like that.

A bigger second stage has been a must for a while now.   House Party would be nice larger.

Taking interest in this one this year, why are people avoiding Y Not?

How quick does 1st release actually sell?, must be the fastest selling festival now. I believe it works out £190 based on two people if you include Thursday which for Happy Mondays and Franz wouldn't be worth it for me....buy I guess you probably have to just so you get a good camp spot in Saddle for e.g..
