The independent music festival and themed summer party, Standon Calling, returns for an 12th year in the grounds of a 16th Century Hertfordshire manor house over the weekend of Friday 28th to Sunday 30th July 2017, with early entry and limited entertainment available on the Thursday.
Orbital and Clean Bandit are confirmed as headliners, with loads more announced, including the first acts for the new comedy stage.
For all the details so far please see the line-up page.
As well as the music line-up there's lots of 'family activities' - for the kids - including a Horrible Histories 'Barmy Britain' live performance on the Saturday, plus workshops and performances like Matthew Bourne’s Adventures, Ethereal Productions circus and theatre workshop, Hip Hop Academy masterclasses on graffiti, DJ, rap, beat production and beat boxing, nature based charity Fairyland Trust, and more.
Tickets are priced at £147, £97 for a youth weekend pass (aged 13-17 years) and £35 for a child weekend pass (4-12 years), infants (0-3 years) tickets are priced at £5.
A campervan pass is priced at £60. Car parking passes £20.
Standon Calling has not yet unveiled the theme which will take over the festival site with interactive theatre, art installations and costumes.
There are numerous stages and the odd unexpected stage appearing from nowhere. The festival boasts a number of bars, one of which is hewn out of an enormous oak tree, secret areas, interactive theatre, swimming pool (with underwater dance area), boutique camping (beach huts, yurts and tipis), kids area.
Standon Calling is also going big on food and drink, and includes the opportunity for 'Sunday Lunch & Jazz On The Lawn', and a real ale festival, amongst many other things.
The organisers are trying to make this festival as ethical and green as possible, recycling all and sundry and sourcing locally where possible and they are raising money for charity too.
More information will be here when available.
