Kendal Calling 2013 announce Primal Scream, The Charlatans, Basement Jaxx


Kendal Calling today announces an incredible first crop of artists to perform at the 8th edition of this multi award winning Lake District festival.  Situated in one of the most beautiful locations
in the UK, Kendal Calling has established a reputation as one of the most forward thinking festivals in the country, combing fantastic music, great food, award winning ales and good times in the outstanding surroundings of the Lake District. 

Basement Jaxx are the ultimate party act who have paid their dues on the dance music circuit and have got the back catalogue to prove it.  This dance act don’t hide behind a screen of visuals,they put on and epic and extravagant performance that is more carnival than live show and showcases their mix of latin, hip hop and dancehall infused house music to devastating effect on tracks like Where’s Your Head At, Red Alert, Jus 1 Kiss, Bingo Bango, Romeo, Rendez Vu and Oh My Gosh.  Basement Jaxx will close the first night in stunning fashion.

Last year Tim Burgess from The Charlatans hosted the Tim Peaks Diner at Kendal Calling, a virtual diner that was one of the highlights of the festival and this year he’s bringing the rest of
his band with him for a Saturday night headline slot.  The Charlatans are one of the great British bands of the last 25 years and have melded rock, psychedelia, funk and dance rhythms over
11 albums since their inception in 1989.  This is a band who have always refused to stand still and this northern festival exclusive is likely to feature classics such as The Only One I Know,
Weirdo, Just When You’re Thinking Things Over, One To Another
, Then and many more.

Primal Scream
are arguably the greatest rock n’ roll band of the last 30 years mixing indie, alternative rock, psychedelia and acid house to mesmerising effect.  Their live sets are euphoric affairs featuring classics  such as Higher Than The Sun, Loaded, Country Girl, Rocks and Come Together and Bobby Gillespie and the boys are set to bring their rock n’ roll swagger to the Lakes.  Their new album More Light is released in May and Kendal Calling will unite to the classic anthems of a genuinely legendary band.

Kendal Calling is about much more than just the headliners and its hugely eclectic line ups have drawn much critical acclaim from festival goers, artists and media alike.

Frontman John Bramwell’s poetic one liners and twisted, witty lyrics punctuate I Am Kloot’s deceptively understated songs and their gritty but pretty symphonies about life, love and alcoho
l are timeless. Northern Irish stalwarts Ash make a welcome return after their epic headline slot back in 2009 and will whip up the crowd with a set of exemplary alternative rock.  Fake Blood
aka DJ Touche is an enormous presence on the house and electro scene and his set will have the Kendal Calling crowd dancing long into the night.

The Lightning Seeds genius song writing helped reshape the face of British pop music and the band will perform a rare acoustic set.  Kendal Calling are delighted to welcome back local
Lake District heroes British Sea Power with a special show for their 10th anniversary while Mystery Jets exhibit the quintessentially English, crowd pleasing pop of their ‘Radlands’ album. 

Radio 1 new boy and part of the Numbers collective, Jackmaster will bring 'eclectic electrics' from techno and house to disco and dubstep and Dub Pistols bass shuddering dub and big beatwill be in full effect with a live performnce and DJ set too.

Mr Scruff is a national treasure and his sets incorporate soul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, reggae, latin, african, ska, disco, house, funk, breaks, soundtracks and loads more.  Hip-hop and dubstep
comes courtesy of Foreign Beggars and drum & bass overlord Roni Size will keep the crowd jumping while best dressed man in music Willy Moon brings the music of Bo Diddley and
Buddy Holly kicking and screaming into the present.

The crystalline leftfield pop of Manchester based Dutch Uncles, the lustful hooks and sleazy charm of rapidly exploding The 1975 and the epic, melodic rock of Kodaline are must see acts
at Kendal Calling.

Other festival confirmations include Wave Machines, Oneman, Tricka Technology (Krafty Kuts V's A.Skillz), Bondax, Loadstar, Theme Park, Public Service Broadcasting, Monsta, Slamboree, Artwork, The 1975, Drenge, Dynamite MC, Grooverider, Dismantle, Walter Ego, Sons and Lovers, Chunky, Tonn Piper, Wind Up Birds, The Mispers, Flight of Arrows, Father Funk, Calling All Astronauts and Genre Sluts.

100's more acts to be announced, as well as areas, attractions and other aspects of the festival including the fancy dress theme.

Last year Kendal Calling sold out a remarkable seven weeks in advance of the show and the festival has sold out in each of its seven previous years.  Despite adding a number of
new developments for 2013 organisers have kept the event to the same capacity as last year protecting the festivals intimate feel and attention to detail for which it is renowned.

Watch out for many more Kendal Calling announcements over the forthcoming months as the festival continues to provide the perfect backdrop for a weekend of musical merriment in the fields.
