They join the likes of The Streets, Cornershop, The Travelling Band, The Yards, Riot Jazz, The Kabeedies and Kasms, all confirmed for the festival's fourth year.

With more big acts to be announced over the following weeks, Andy Smith, co-founder of Kendal Calling said, "This year's line-up is looking great already, with the likes of Beardyman and Skream we've got some of the most creative artists in British dance music. I saw Chase and Status live not so long ago and just knew we had to get them onboard, happily they answered the Call!"

Co-founder and fellow Cumbrian Ben Robinson added "We're also really excited about the various entertainment we have planned for during the day, such as the 'Fox and Hound' game sprawling all over the site. We've got something particularly special planned too, which we're hoping to announce shortly, it certainly won't be something the Lake District has seen before - well not all in the one field!"

An adult weekend ticket is priced at £70, a child (11-14 years) weekend ticket is priced at £40, and children under 11 can attend for free, but need a ticket. To buy tickets, click here.
