Since small beginnings as a garden party 14 years ago, Standon Calling has flourished into one of the area’s top music festivals.
Known for its boutique, quirky feel and family-friendly vibe, the festival takes place from 25 to 28 July on a sprawling estate in Standon, near Hertfordshire. The site, which is nestled in the valley of the River Rib, is a lovely mix of woodland and rolling meadows, complete with a heated outdoor pool that festivalgoers are welcome to hop into.
For this year’s event, artists including Rag ’N’ Bone Man, Chic & Nile Rodgers, Friendly Fires, Roisin Murphy and Echo and the Bunnymen will be taking to the stage, plus you can expect quirky entertainment, great costumes (this year’s theme is Twisted Creatures: a strange evolution), and a colourful parade.
Adult tickets are £169 for the weekend.
