The Basics

27-30 July 2017
Standon, United Kingdom

Standon Calling is one of the UK's and most fun and diverse musical festivals.

From pop, indie, rock and hip-hop in the day to a dedicated electronic programme that comes into its own when the sun goes down, the festival combines stellar lineups of musicians with comedy, cookery, crafts and general creativity for a weekend of family-friendly fun.

Complete with its own trademark quirks - a swimming pool, an annual dog show and a host of dancers and performers to name a few - Standon Calling 2017 promises to be another weekend of eccentric entertainment.

What To Know

  • This years theme is Tales of the Enchanted Valley, which means it's time to start planning those fancy-dress outfits, while the festival's own set design will be created around the same theme, making the site a scene out of the furthest corners of our imagination.
