Three more acts added to Standon Calling 2019 line-up

The festival will run from 25 - 28 July 2019 in Hertfordshire.

Organisers of Standon Calling have added The Japanese House, Annabel Allum and Maven Grace to the 2019 line-up.

The news comes following the release of The Japanese House’s, AKA Amber Bain, acclaimed debut full-length Good At Falling.


The three latest additions follow news that Friendly Fires will also be appearing on the bill.

The band made a return last year with new singles Love Like Waves and Heaven Let Me In, working on the follow-up to their 2008 self-titled debut and 2011’s top ten album, Pala.

Wolf Alice, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, and Rag’n’Bone Man will headline Standon Calling 2019.

Celebrated as one of the most influential icons in musical history, Nile Rodgers will be bringing his illustrious history of disco and funk to the festival’s main stage, including hits such as Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance.

Nile Rodgers & CHIC released their latest album It’s About Time last year. We caught up with Rodgers at Abbey Road Studios towards the end of 2018 to find out more.


Wolf Alice continue to ride the wave of their Mercury Prize winning Visions Of A Life, taking them to bigger and bigger stages. Ending 2018 with a UK tour including sold out shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, and having wowed audiences at the vast Alexandra Palace, Standon Calling will welcome them to the top of the bill.

Rag’n’Bone Man is working on his follow-up to 2017’s massive Human, one of the fastest selling debuts by a male artist across the last decade.

“Standon Calling has been one of those festivals I’ll always tell my mates to go to because the vibe is always great,” he said of the announcement, “so I’m pretty hyped to be playing it again next year.”

Other artists on the bill include Echo & The Bunneymen, Idles, Lewis Capaldi, Kate Nash, The Big Moon, Band of Skulls, The Go! Team, Sea Girls, The Joy Formidable, Warmduscher, Erol Alkan, and Simian Mobile Disco.

Roisin Murphy, Mahalia, Steam Down, Kawala, Emma McGrath, Fangclub, Babeheaven and Hattie Whitehead have also recently joined the line-up for the festival, taking place in Hertfordshire this July.

Russell Kane and Angela Barnes will headline the comedy stage, alongside household names such as Abandoman, Jen Brister, Sarah Keyworth, Amy Gledhill, Jacob Hawley and Cally Beaton.

The family-friendly event will also host Dick & Dom, Mr Bloom & His Band, and more entertainment for fans of all ages.
