Organisers have thanked festival-goers for making the 10th Standon Calling a huge success – and released a batch of tickets for 2016 at a special price.

The Hertfordshire music festival took place over the weekend, with headline performances from Little Dragon, The Dandy Warhols and Basement Jaxx.

It was the event’s 10th anniversary year, after starting out as a party in the grounds of Standon Lordship.

Festival founder Alex Trenchard said: “I’d like to say an enormous thank you to all the people who came along and made Standon Calling’s tenth birthday party so special.

“We’ve come a long way from the handful of bands playing on a rickety stage on my parents’ lawn 10 years ago.”

The festival director added: “There are countless highlights – and I love hearing all of yours. For me Basement Jaxx’s headline set on Sunday followed by Gilles Peterson in the Cowshed was the perfect way to end a festival.”

Tickets for Standon Calling 2016 went on sale to fans on-site at the weekend, priced £87.

Organisers have made a very limited number of £87 tickets available for those who missed out.

They are available from the Standon Calling website here.

Alex added: “This will be your last chance before the price increases to the Early Bird price of £107.”

Standon Calling 2016 will take place from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.
