Kendal Calling

BELLADRUM TARTAN HEART, Belladrum Estate, Beauly, 5-6 Aug: A quintet of fresh acts are newly primed to perform at this year’s sold-out Belladrum bash, as comprised of Edinburgh indie types We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Phantom Band, Sound Of Guns, Nathaniel Rateliff and Polarsets. Bon Iver-covering waif Birdy has unfortunately had to withdraw for her planned appearance, but there’s still a stellar bill of remaining players including Texas, Echo & The Bunnymen, Guillemots, Frank Turner, Anna Calvi, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner and Little Comets.

KENDAL CALLING, Lowther Estate, Hackthorpe, East Cumbria, 29-31 Jul: Electro-pop outfit Fenech-Soler are just confirmed to headline at the Calling Out stage on the closing day of this eclectic weekend bash, with Balkan gypsy band Slamboree and Skamel of Fat Freddy’s Drop rounding off the recent additions. Carrying a strict fancy dress theme of ‘Beasts & Machines’, the festival is set to host the likes of Blondie, Chase & Status, The Cribs, Echo & The Bunnymen, Mr Scruff and The Whip.
