The latest additions for the Kaylied Stage are Tunng, Casiokids, Black Diamond Bay, Kate Rogers, and Sam Quill.

Preston based Jelly's Last Jam, and The Blims have also today been confirmed, as has Kiss tribute band Arockalyspe Now.

Co-founder and organiser, Ben Robinson, said, "There's some quality folk acts coming out of the UK at the moment and it's more popular than ever. Dent Folk Festival was a great success in Cumbria last week and we've no doubt our folk acts will be attracting the crowds at this year's Kendal Calling."

These latest acts join the likes of The Streets, The Zutons, The Rumble Strips, Beardyman, Chase & Status, Shy FX, Iration Steppas, Skream, Andrew Weatherall, The Sunshine Underground, Crazy P, Noah and The Whale, Steppa, Exodus, The King Blues, Fight Like Apes, Hereldeduke, Craig Charles, The Travelling Band, The Kabeedies, Cornershop, The Yards, Riot Jazz, Kasms, and more.

This year there will also be snow at the festival with the addition of a SNO!zone with more than 80 tonnes of real snow. The indoor snow slope, which is based in Castleford, near Leeds, will haul the snow over the Pennines to create the SNO!zone Off Piste area at the Cumbrian festival. The Alpine themed area will provide a place to chill out after watching bands as well as including a 30m real snow slide and snowboard simulator as well as DJs playing a variety of hip-hop, reggae and summer tunes.

An adult weekend ticket is priced at £70, a child (11-14 years) weekend ticket is priced at £40, and children under 11 can attend for free, but need a ticket. To buy tickets, click here.

Kendal Calling is held in the Lake District, over the weekend of Friday 31st July to Sunday 2nd August and is a wholly independent festival returning for its fourth year in a new location at the Lowther Estate, Kendal, in East Cumbria.
