Noel’s songwriting has soundtracked the lives of millions over the last two decades; it’s with great pride that we’re able to bring those anthems and his new hits to the fields of Kendal Calling. Alongside Rudimental, Madness, The Charlatans and the rest of the bill it’s going to be another weekend to remember, see you the fields!"
