Festival Preview: Kendal Calling

Nestled in the dramatic landscape of the Lake District, Kendal Calling is every inch the boutique festival, with tickets running out fast.

Written by Cari Steel



For a festival that is just five years old, illness Kendal Calling has already amassed a kudos rating that belies its youth; (Annie Nightingale remarked simply, "It's how festivals should be"). Savvy enough to realise that it is all about keeping the punter happy; the organisers of Kendal have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide an enjoyable and hassle free weekend for all attending 2010's festivities. In a few aspects, they got lucky. Take the setting for example; situated in Lowther Deer Park inside the Lake District in Cumbria, Kendal gets to take advantage of the stunningly breathtaking and unspoilt location; nestled between the dramatic landscape of craggy mountains, Lowther Deer Park makes up 1,000 acres of lush greenery. But with everything else, Kendal has worked hard on its own volition to provide a sound weekend.
