Standon Calling 2013 SOLD OUT

Founder Alex Trenchard comments: "This is the first time weekend tickets have sold out and I'm utterly thrilled. Thank you to all I've worked with for keeping the faith. Standon Calling might be a smaller festival but this season is seeing some of the independents making big waves. Bring on next weekend's celebrations." 

Headliners Digitalism, Band of Skulls and De La Soul head to Hertfordshire 2nd – 4th August for what is set to be Standon Calling’s best year yet. The headliners are joined by some of the most successful young bands and the hottest up-and-coming names around including Bastille, AlunaGeorge and London Grammar. See below for a full day and stage split.

De La Soul

Alongside the music extravaganza is the 2013 theme, ‘Running Away From The Circus’. Fans are no doubt beavering away to create their costumes as we speak. The bravest of punters are signed up to ‘Standon People’s Circus’ which will be putting on shows over the weekend, others will be sky high courtesy of Gorilla Flying Circus and their outdoor trapeze rig offering 90 minute classes and ‘pay per fly’ options. 
 
For families favourites including crafts, Maurice’s reggae nursery rhymes, ‘You and Me photo booth, yoga, storytelling and more take place within the special kids area. Elsewhere more ‘grown-up’ talks and workshops include Art Macabre Life Drawing, the Science of Building a Human Pyramid, the Art of Whipping and more can be enjoyed in The Strongman’s Arms, Standon Calling’s onsite pub. Last but no means least canine friend’s star in Standon Calling’s annual dog show and as always the onsite swimming pool will be open for business.
 
Weekend tickets are now sold out however day tickets to Friday and Sunday can be purchased for £50 from the Standon Calling website. Ticket holders for Sunday will also be able to purchase a £15 add on ticket allowing them to camp that evening.
