Best known for singles Red Alert, Bingo Bango, Rendez-Vu, Romeo, Where’s Your Head At? and Oh My Gosh, the electronic dance music heavyweights will bring the party to a close at Standon’s 10th anniversary celebrations next summer.

Consisting of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, the duo will headline the coveted Sunday night slot at the three-day Hertfordshire music event.

Fresh from their recent Grammy nomination for dance hit Never Say Never, Basement Jaxx are the first act to be revealed for the festival’s 2015 line-up.

Known for their incredible live performances, and hot off their recent tour, the group’s spectacular show features costume changes and incredible dancers and will close Standon Calling’s 10th birthday bash in true style on the Sunday evening.

Felix, of Basement Jaxx, said: “It’s great to end the year with a Grammy nomination and our tour finale at the O2 in London.

“Looking forward to 2015, we’re excited to announce a headline slot at the brilliant Standon Calling festival on Sunday, August 2.”

Taking place in the stunning country manor grounds of Standon Lordship, near Ware, from Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2, Tier 1 tickets go on sale this week from www.standon-calling.com priced at £117.

Last year’s festival included headline performances from Frank Turner and Public Enemy, while previous acts to have played Standon include De La Soul, Bastille and Florence & The Machine.
