not headliners, but I'd love to see an old punk band there. Loads still gigging. Skids, Buzzcocks, Stranglers, Rezillos, Penetration, Upstarts, SLF.  Not so punkish but Echo and the Bunnymen, Squeeze

big shout for SLF

I put them down every year on the "who do want at kendal" poll

Another vote for SLF.

also had email about suggestions for 2018 but that says sign in via facebook to leave your thoughts, no good to me as i dont use it.

Judging by the bemused looks i got of people during this years festival when asked if i was on Facebook I'm beginning to think i'm the only person not on there.

PSB are awesome live but it needs to be dark or in a tent for the light show to have impact.  Can't see them having a headline spot really. Be great headlining the Woodlands though. 

I'd punch myself in the balls to see Depeche Mode at a festival. Possible for next year? They are on the road....

Black Grape also touring with new material in 2018. That would be worth a watch. Not sure where they'd slot in though.

If I could pick ANY 3 from a wish list, I'd probably go Depeche Mode, Doves and Jeff Lynne's ELO.  Neeeeevveeeer gonna happen though. Boo.

I missed a bit of hip hop this year, after having the likes of Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy and Sugarhill Gang in recent years I'd like to see a 50 Cent or Eminem next year. I also echo the thoughts that the Prodigy would be awesome. As for saying KC couldn't afford acts, surely if they can afford the likes of Snoop Dogg, Noel Gallagher then there can't be too many acts out of their reach ??

I reckon Mumford and Sons might make an appearance and maybe Paolo Nutini.

Rick Astley as the token oldie act

As long as Rick brings along his new best friends. :D

There's some colourful language at the start.

No idea on cost or popularity with the yoof but went to see Sleaford Mods last night and for me they would be a brilliant booking to headline Calling Out.

I believe we have to wait for the royal decree from @ramragon

It's normally January I start that but I can kick it off early, probably a 4 month wait till the 1st announcement though ! 

I went to Electric Fields the other month and caught Jesus and Mary Chain, couldn't see them headline Kendal but they were excellent.

eeeeeh  @ramragon no hurry from me, I think I'm just chompin at the bit......maybe far too early to be fair.......BUT like you've said you've seen noted acts this year....what is seen and is good is surely to be noted by various others and booked accordingly! subject to dates of course.......we totally missed KC this year for the 1st in 6yrs and are already having our own 'lets guess and probs be miles off' line up conversations already :rolleyes:

I’d be well pleased with some 90’s dance headliner like The Prodigy or The Chemical Brothers but I just can’t see it happening. I’d take Ocean Colour Scene or White Lies but only as a Thursday nighter. For me they fit the Franz Ferdinand and Happy Mondays gap left last year. Overall I’m quietly hopeful for a few nice surprises.

Could see OCS happening. Mind the fella was really ill when they did the acoustic thing in the muddy year. The really muddy one I think it was. Was strange atmosphere as he was clearly struggling .

Strange atmosphere? Think you were at a different set sir. That moment when he clearly couldn't do the chorus so all of us sang for him and he just played and smiled was just amazing

Oh I agree mate. Did the sun not also come out between monsoons?

I vaguely remember the feeling was he wouldn’t be able to finish the set and feeling sorry for the fella.

I always like a bit of OCS :-)
