  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

  2. 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...!

  3. 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???

    Can only see one real ale tent on this years map no sign of the one up near Tim peaks/ woodland area.

    wonder if that's just an omission or whether the Strongbow people have paid more to effectively be exclusive across that area?

    Hey guys, first time going to KC this year with my mates and im super excited! But a little nervous....

    Im gonna bring a bit of green in (please leave your judgement out if youre against it, im responsible) and was wondering if security are tight, any chances of a strip search if the dogs alert me? Or are they relaxed as long as you dont look like a yob? Was going to just put it in my pants to avoid any worries. Maybe im just overthinking it but worried it might be tough because of the tragic death a few years ago.

    Got a few others questions. How early should i get to the glow tent if i want to get close to the front, is it packed? Also what are some good bands/acts my friends might enjoy that dont really listen to indie/rock? Any smaller acts ive never heard of i should see? 


    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

    Yep, I probably should have done a summary, I’ve been a bit busy today. Thanx. 

    I’m leaving the wellies at home. Walking boots should do n

    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!

    Just a quick question for anyone who has any knowledge of the Frontier campervan area. Reading the website again today it says the pitches in there are 7m x 2m? Seems pretty small for the width. Checked the dimensions of the vehicle i’m Hiring and it’s 2.5m wide. So is that a typo on the website or are the pitches in there that small? Says they are 7m x 7m in the other campervan area. Cheers 

    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

    Was there not a bit of fuss from some traders last year who’s pitches had changed due to new layout and they struggled? 

    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
