The festival season is upon us and Kendal Calling 2011 has recently passed, yet again this has been a major success with festival goers leaving very satisfied. The festival continues to go from strength to strength and it has improved greatly from its early days when the capacity crowd was just nine hundred people. This year there was 1300 people who attended the event held at Lowther Deer Park located in the Lake District Countryside.
This is a festival which is still building a loyal following and it continues to grow each year as the organisers are able to secure bigger and better acts. This year the headline acts included Blondie, The Cribs and Chase & Status. Other well known acts performing at the festival also included Beardyman, The Whip, House of Pain, Nero and The Levellers.
One of the most welcome performers at the festival was The Whip who really did storm the crowd when performing their blend of rock and electro. The band from Oldham put on a real display and many festival goers heaped praise on their electric performance. House of Pain followed The Whip and played some of their well known classics, a welcome addition to the festival for this year.
Chase & Status were one of the main headline acts at the festival and really did set the festival alight. The duo performed all of their well known songs and kept the festival awake into the early hours. The Kaylied, Houseparty and Glow Dance tents danced the night away to all of the popular Chase & Status songs. The duo who regularly play at some of the biggest venues across the world have recently rose to fame with numerous songs which have hit the UK Charts, they revealed that they had enjoed playing at the festival and were very impressed at how it had been organised.
This festival continues to grow in popularity, mainly due to it being family friendly and in a very good location. Kendal Calling offers a different type of experience to the usual music festival and this is likely to be one of the main reasons why it is going from strength to strength.
