Standon Calling's tenth anniversary celebrated with a stellar line-up.
Hertfordshire's most eventful music festival Standon Calling is set to return for its 10th anniversary, and a host of new line-up additions are announced as the event draws nearer; including UK festival favourites The Horrors. Though that's not all you can look forward to.
Joining the likes of already announced headliners Little Dragon, The Dandy Warhols and Basement Jaxx are indie five-piece The Horrors, whose last album 'Luminous' (released in 2014) reached number 6 in the UK albums chart, as well as Dingwalls DJs Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge, electro duo Bondax and Scottish synthpop trio Prides.
This year's theme is 'A Town of Two Faces' - and so Standon will unveil a split personality over the first Summer Bank Holiday weekend. The festival will unveil a Wild West Town featuring activities such as taxidermy classes at Dr. Leech's Wellness Center & Funeral Parlour, art classes with Art Macabre and dancing at The Dance Off's Hillbilly Hoedown. There's also a swimming pool; the perfect place to cool off after a day of dancing in the summer heat. The evening will subsequently bring a night of excessive partying with amazing cocktail bars, DJs and yet to be announced venues.

More new acts on the line-up include London's DJ Yoda, seventies Caribbean soul-drenched The Cuban Brothers, and vibrant costume clad Sink The Pink. They'll be performing with the likes of London rapper Roots Manuva, dance collective Hercules and Love Affair, and singer songwriter Ella Eyre.
Standon Calling will take place from July 31st to August 2nd 2015 with admission tickets priced at £127.
