Complete with swimming pool which houses an underwater disco, a host of late night surprises, secret stages and unexpected performances and market-style street food stalls, Standon Calling will this year also launch its very own local produce boxes in its ongoing support of local agricultural industries, which will accompany the fully stocked festival bars featuring local beers and ales.
