MORE acts have been added to the Standon Calling 2013 line-up, with the Folkstock Arts Foundation also curating a stage at this summer’s Hertfordshire music festival.
London Grammar, Lucy Rose and Chloë Howl have all been confirmed for the three-day party taking place in the Hertfordshire countryside near Ware from Friday, August 2 to Sunday, August 4.
Folk songstress and Bombay Bicycle Club collaborator Lucy Rose is set to mesmerize festival-goers with her beautiful vocals and emotive songwriting.
Also joining the Standon 2013 line-up are London Grammar who, since the release of their internet debut Hey Now at the end of last year, have continued to impress with follow-up releases and a Disclosure collaboration currently all over the airwaves.
Across the festival, organisers have also added Chlöe Howl to the bill. She’ll be telling it like it is with her sparky brand of electro-pop.
Mary Epworth, whose mix of folk and psychedelic has music critics swooning, will be a home turf highlight for the festival.
Other additions to Standon Calling include Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Dancing Years, Lazy Habits featuring Baby Sol and Lips Choir.
Standon Calling organisers are also excited to reveal three exiting new collaborations on the Lordship Stage on the lawns of Standon Lordship manor house.
Situated handily next to the swimming pool, the Lordship Stage will feature folk, Americana and local acoustic acts.
The Crypt Sessions, Loose and Folkstock Arts Foundation have handpicked a select line-up of exciting acts to come and wow crowds at the Hertfordshire festival over the three days.
London-based Lucy Rose heads The Crypt Sessions’ line-up, followed by Guardian New Band of the Day, Sivu and Annie Mac’s folk-favourite Emily & The Woods.
Also on the bill will be Thomas J Speight, The Title Sequence, Lowpines, Gibson Bull, Aley Lenz and Matthew Neal.
The Crypt Sessions’ online video channel has been bringing stripped back, intimate performances from music’s finest into our homes for more than three years and they are now set to do the same on the Lordship Stage.
Leading European Americana and Roots label Loose invite folk-rockers Danny & The Champions Of The World to the Lordship Stage, with further performances from Treetop Flyers, the guitar wielding married duo Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, The Rockingbirds, solo singer-songwriter Peter Bruntnell, The Dreaming Spires and Case Hardin.
Based just down the road from Standon, the Folkstock Arts Foundation community are strong supporters of emerging talent and will no doubt be introducing festival-goers to the region’s brightest stars.
Their line-up includes Boo Hetherline, the likes of The Willows, and three-piece girl group Said The Maiden.
They’ll also be live folk and rock performances from Reg Meuross, Fred’s House, The Folk, Interiors, locals Vardo and The Boss, Nick and The Sun Machine, Flaming June, Roxanne de Bastion, Indi Forde, Zoe Wren, Owen Stephen, Rob Finlay, Minnie Birch and Noel Cowley.
With three days of interactive theatre, art installations, a swimming pool, children’s area and kids’ activities, onsite nightclub and the exciting ‘Running Away from the Circus’ theme, this year’s Standon Calling is set to be the festival’s best yet.
Tickets are currently on sale at the tier one price of £99 for weekend ticket.
