Intimate, diverse and family-friendly
Now one of the UK's most intimate, eclectic and family-friendly festivals, Standon Calling has come a long way since its humble beginnings: just 25 friends, a set of decks and a birthday BBQ.
That was 2004. Now in 2016, the festival has welcomed the likes of Basement Jaxx, De La Soul and The Maccabees over the past 11 years, alongside its side lineup of comedy, theatre and cookery as well as the huge variety of fun and games, from flamenco dancing through to voodoo rituals. The site's design is also tied into its yearly story, which in 2016 will be the Legends of the Lost Seas, and festival-goers are encouraged to get creative with it too, donning fancy-dress and more.
What's more, Standon Calling is the only UK festival to have a swimming pool, meaning there's no excuse not to cool off between partying, but one thing is for sure, you wont be able to keep yourself away for long.
