  1. Hi all, not been on for a while. Looking likely we will have to have a year out this year, was worried that they'd pull a banger out and I'd be proper gutted but although I really like the lineup there isn't one on there I'm devastated to miss. If the lottery numbers come in I'll seeyouinthefields otherwise 2021 for me. Rob

    Purchased my emperors fields tickets on the payment plan but will get main tickets later in year. keeping an eye on them though as KC have announced it will be the 15th anniversary so should be a big one... With the change of weekend the closing night will now be Anji's and my wedding anniversary, better be a decent closing act...!
  4. Headliner wise... Orbital were good in my view but didn't seem to quite get the crowd bouncing. Nile Rodgers just fab. Doves were the absolute highlight, utterly brilliant just a pity that the crowd was a 1/10th of what it could have been with the rain. Courteeners were very dull, arguably the worst Sunday act I have seen at Kendal. Last 15 minutes they kicked it up a notch but otherwise completely flat and it was noticeable that there was a nasty edge to the whole festival this year which i think that booking played a significant part in. I didn't know who Years and Years were but they were excellent. Gomez were a let down. Pigeon detectives played a great set also and the Cuban Brothers have the distinction of being the only group were the lead singers bollox had their own chorus. I enjoyed myself again, as always was nice to meet up with a few of you on here for a few beers again too. Belinda cuming for the 15th anniversary???
  5. Stood at far right of bar if anyone braving it!
  6. There is main, calling out and woodlands for you chief
  7. It has been open every year bar the first time they put on music on the Thursday?
  8. They are subbing yes? Last year's Thursday sub ko'd at 1945 but was a DJ set so might be a tad earlier
  9. wonder if that's just an omission or whether the Strongbow people have paid more to effectively be exclusive across that area?
  10. Hi @Welshwanderer All I will say in regards to your security q is that there are sniffer dogs. In regards to other non indie rock tents, house party is an obvious one but give both the yam riot and chai wallahs a check out Seeyouinthefields, Rob
  11. Hi is the Mugshot still available? I've told the wife I have bought food supplies but only managed beer, you could really save my bacon... Also do you have any bacon?
  12. never brought wellies, never will. always served me well, this will be my 8th on the bounce and as far as I remember it has never rained yet!
  13. 2pm Saturday it is and now no excuses for @SloopJohnB not to be there. In terms of how to find us, I look like the chap in my pic, @Comfy Bean looks like someone you should consider giving 20pence to even if he wasn't begging and if we can convince @thurlow84 to make an appearance he might very well have a traffic cone on his head. It's the Saturday too so I will be dressed in Safari gear.
  14. You say the same thing every year!! How about we call it 2pm instead, will that give you enough beauty sleep??
  15. Wondering if anyone on here fancies meeting up for a few beers again this year, Saturday at noon in main real ale tent perhaps?
  16. This is last year's main stage, if you know the running order for this year timings likely won't be that much different
  17. Do you need a Thurs ticket? We have 2 spare

    I am pretty sure you get directed into the next spot available rather than choosing tbh
  19. They can walk, might be a trek depending on how they have marked out the lanes etc but your car will be directed based on the colour parking banner thingy. It will be sound
  20. states in https://kendalcalling.co.uk/news (scroll down the the announcement) that the size for that field is 7m x 5m be just a typo
  21. That is why Piggys are not returning, they said that they paid for their 'usual' spot but discovered that they were moved into the back field on arrival and didn't make anywhere near as much as previous
  22. they were the same price as emperors (£42 rings a bell + fees, postage, tribute to ticketmaster, blood of 1st born etc...)
