Kendal Calling founder Andy Smith commented, "Since its humble beginnings as an teensy-eensy one and a half stage festival held in the grounds of a town centre art gallery back in 2006 to its current home spread across the stunning 300 acre Lowther Deer Park, home to our 12 stages (and more to come), it’s been an incredible journey.
I think it’s fair to say this year’s line-up is going to take some beating though with an expanded festival seeing 5 headliners over 4 days and an eclectic spread across all stages, but the real beauty is in the atmosphere of the audience and that's what it's really about at Kendal."
Tier 3 tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow morning (Tuesday 17th February), priced at £130. Last year's the festival sold out in mid May!

The wholly independent festival is held over the weekend of Thursday 30th July to Sunday 2nd August 2015 returning to the Lowther Deer Park, Hackthorpe, in the Lake District.
