Organisers of Hertfordshire music festival Standon Calling will make the first 2016 line-up announcement later this month - with early bird weekend tickets almost sold out.
The annual festival returns to the grounds of Standon Lordship over the weekend of Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.
Standon Calling tweeted yesterday: “We expect to run out of Early Bird Weekend tickets tonight! Last chance to buy tickets for just £107.”
Promoters also confirmed on Twitter that the first line-up announcement will be made “before the end of February”.
Last summer’s event was headlined by Little Dragon, The Dandy Warhols and Basement Jaxx.
In an email newsletter, Standon organisers wrote: “There’s a whole load going on behind the scenes here at Standon HQ, so watch this space for lots of exiting news coming soon.
“Our Early Bird tickets have been flying out the door, so make sure you don’t miss out – we’re expecting the last ones to be gone by the end of today before the Tier 1 tickets go on sale.”
Standon Calling’s theme this year will be launched at Vault Festival on March 5.
Organisers said: “Every year at Standon Calling we tell a different story, a backdrop for a world that comes to life as the festival unfolds.
“Past years have included ‘Murder on the Standon Express’, ‘Running Away from the Circus’ and last year’s ‘A Town of Two Faces’.
“We will be unveiling this year’s story at Vault Festival on 5th March, deep in the tunnels under Waterloo.
“Expect appearances from some very special guests, a taster of that special Standon atmosphere, and a proper party until 3am.”
Tickets are available for £10 plus booking fee.
