What started as 25 friends, a swimming pool, a set of decks and a birthday BBQ, is now one of the most eclectic and intimate UK festivals on the circuit. 

Standon Calling may have grown a little since those adolescent days, but the festival still maintains its home-grown ethos and commitment to championing new artists before they broke, along with pairing underground artists with classic names. 2015 highlights include Little Dragon, The Dandy Warhols, Basement Jaxx, Roots Manuva and Ella Eyre.

But Standon Calling isn't all about the music, and is instead keen to also support a whole array of creativity, be it painters, sculptors, actors, comedians or even chefs, all guided by an overarching theme that changes year on year, culminating in a weekend packed full of bizarre surprises that are sure to dazzle and excite. 

This year's theme is "A Town Of Two Faces"
