Standon Calling organisers have added a wealth of new names for 2019 following their initial line-up announcement back in November.
Revealed alongside previously-announced Rag’n’Bone Man, 2019’s Standon Calling will also see headline appearances from Nile Rodgers & Chic alongside a welcome return from Wolf Alice, the latter who won 2018’s Mercury Prize for their second studio album ‘Visions Of A Life’.
“We are honoured to be headlining a festival” said the duom, adding “We won’t be doing many shows this year so Standon Calling is gonna be extremely exciting. Even if you don’t like Wolf Alice, you should buy tickets anyway ‘cos Dick and Dom are DJing and – depending on how hard you stare at the poster – Fleetwood Mac are supporting us xxx”. (FYI, Fleetwood Mac aren’t playing – instead LA-based remix outfit Fleetmac Wood will be taking the helm at one of Standon’s many DJ slots.)
Additional names added to this year’s line-up include Echo & The Bunnymen, Idles, Lewis Capaldi and Iris Gold.
Reflecting on the latest wave of new acts announced for Standon Calling 2019, Founder and Festival Director Alex Trenchard said: “Every year at Standon Calling we want to bring an experience and show that people will never forget. This year, I feel we’ve done that and more, with one of my favourite bands of the past decade Wolf Alice and one of my favourite bands of all time Nile Rodgers & CHIC topping the bill in 2019. From top to bottom there’s something for everyone, and we’re excited to welcome everyone for an incredible weekend this July.”
