12 stages – 3 days and nights of fun in the fields in the beautiful Lake District

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Kendal Calling is proud to announce legendary and controversial American Hip-Hop group Public Enemy will be touching down in the fields for a rare UK festival appearance. With Chuck D’s forcefully enlightening rhymes, and the chaotic, comic of Flavor Flav’s cuts (not to mention his oversized clocks!) this is simply not to be missed.

Also flying the flag for the US in the festivals latest line-up additions is Steven Gene Wold, commonly known as Seasick Steve. Born in Oakland, California and now in his seventies, Steve has been singing the blues and playing guitar since the age of eight. Steve began playing music for a living in the early 1960s, in bands and as a solo musician, but it was not until he played on Later… with Jools Holland on New Year’s Eve in 2006 that he made his breakthrough in the UK.

Johnny Marr formed The Smiths in 1982 when he was just 18 and they went onto become one of the most important bands in the history of music and Johnny Marr one of the greatest guitarists the UK has ever produced. Post The Smiths, Marr has spent his time playing guitar in a succession of great acts such as The Pretenders, The The, Electronic, Modest Mouse and The Cribs bringing a shimmering majesty to their recordings and live shows and finally released his debut solo album The Messenger which has been met with huge critical acclaim.

The D.O.T is a collaboration between Mike Skinner (The Streets) and Rob Harvey (the Music), the relationship was formed when Mike and Rob’s former bands would cross paths on the touring circuit and solidified when Mike asked Rob to accompany him on the final Streets tour. Mike and Rob soon then put in some studio time and revealed in the freedom to make music for it’s own sake. With no need to conform to a specific style, or satisfy a record label’s scheduling demands, there gradually evolved the sound you hear now in their second album Diary (out 6th May). As well as The D.O.T set the critically acclaimed urban poet laureate and The Streets frontman Mike Skinner returns to the fields for a very special DJ set in the Glow Dance Tent.

The Woodland area returns for it’s second year but this time round it will feature the cream of the regional crop with rising stars from Morecambe The Heartbreaks, Preston’s Techniques, Kendal band The Feud, Lake District starlet Fiona Clayton plus many more of the regions hidden gems to discover.

More acts across all 12 stages are to be announced as well as attractions, the Real Ale Festival, Comedy, spoken word & arts, Ladybird children’s area and much more over the next few months – all for only £115!

Calling Out stage is brought to you in conjunction with Gigwise on Friday 26th and DIY on Saturday 27th.

Soundcrash and New Bohemia present something special…
SOUNDWAVE CROATIA – The Garden Tisno, 18th-22nd July 2013

“One of Europe’s biggest parties” – Dazed

“Perhaps the summer’s most beautiful site” – Time Out

“All the quirks of a Bestival but in a far more beautiful, and sunny setting” – The Guardian

“Soundwave Croatia is the stuff of which holidays used to be made, amazing memories that will remain forever framed in that cavernous, green arena by the sea…” – The Independent

“Nestled into the coastline of Croatia, Soundwave is rapidly emerging as one of the finest boutique festivals that Europe has to offer” – Clash

In previous years we’ve been lucky enough to have artists such as De La Soul, Little Dragon, The Cinematic Orchestra, Roots Manuva, Bonobo, Gentlemans Dub Club and a whole heap of others create what was for many not only the perfect festival but also the holiday of lifetime.

The Garden, Tisno

In 2012, Soundwave Croatia relocated to the festival grounds located at The Garden, Tisno. This incredibly beautiful site is located just a short walk around the bay from the small Dalmatian town of Tisno. Tisno straddles the Croatian mainland and the Island of Murter, linked by a 20m bridge. Located 45km south of Zadar airport and 65km north of Split airport, Tisno is ideally situated for those of you flying in. The charming town is picture perfect with a host of restaurants, cafes, apartments and small boutique hotels. Within the festival site itself and built up on the hills overlooking the bay is a small onsite apartment village and luxury boutique camping for those who want to be as close to the action as possible whilst a short walk around the bay there is an abundance of beds in the stunning setting of Tisno.

The festival site is on a beautiful strip of coastline where the Dalmatian Coast meets the Adriatic Sea. The main stage arena is a little bigger in capacity than previously and is now set in a tree lined area of parkland in the centre of the site just moments from the seafront.

The Beach Stage for dancing in the glistening Adriatic listening to your favourite DJs play through a crystal clear Funktion 1 system.
Barbarella’s Discotheque

Barbarella’s open-air Discotheque has room for everyone to dance in the warm moonlit night to their favourite DJs until the early hours.

Boat Parties

The Garden Tisno has its very own dock so those embarking on the twice daily boat parties can walk from Main Stage to boat in seconds and with the Kornati islands only a short distance away expect stunning scenery and sunsets on your voyages.

You can come and stay for a week or just a long weekend, although there are five days of music programmed and the bulk of it happens across the weekend so if you can’t get away from the office for longer than that you won’t be missing out on too much fun. The surrounding area is equally beautiful and there is loads to do such as island hopping, exploring the national parks and nearby mountains, enjoying the culinary delights of the local farming and fishing villages, relaxing on any of the various beaches or maybe you’ll just wave the flag for brits abroad and get sun-burnt, obnoxiously drunk and locked up (Joke – please dont wave that flag).

The History

* Numbers emerged from small basement parties in Glasgow and continues to be a recognised force in electronic music and beyond. Pleasure Principle coincides with their 10th anniversary.
* Dedbeat festival ran from 2001-2004 at a coastal UK holiday park, playing host to heroes from Aphex Twin to Madlib. At the time there was nothing around really like it.
* The intention for Dedbeat was always to return in a new form, but with the same music standards. For Numbers this is another stage in their evolution. Since both crews met through Dedbeat’s festivals over a decade ago, the new association for Pleasure Principle has genuine meaning.

Insomniac and Cream present:
ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL LONDON
  
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park hosts icons
of electronic music for all-day event
 
Electric Daisy Carnival, the world-famous electronic music event, will be heading to London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 20th July 2013 for one of the biggest shows to hit the UK this summer, featuring some of electronic music’s biggest and most globally recognised talent, including headliners Tiësto and AVICII, as well as Steve Angello, Alesso, Hardwell, Madeon and many more, across one main stage and three arenas.
 
Partnered by Insomniac and Cream, Electric Daisy Carnival London will combine the world’s leading electronic artists with the epic production and visual experience that Electric Daisy Carnival has become famed for.
An epicenter for the world’s leading dance music stars, the Electric Daisy Carnival London Main Stage is headed up by Dutch megastar Tiësto and Swedish prodigy AVICII. Tiësto brings a touch of world class to the Main Stage; a one-man music machine, he is a global powerhouse, with his own iPhone App, a weekly podcast, tour dates around the world, and a recent collaboration with AIDS charity (RED) – November 2012’s ‘Dance (RED) Save Lives’ demonstrating his influence. Avicii is an incredible addition to the line-up. The young producer and DJ is currently ranked Number 3 in the ‘DJ Magazine’ Top 100 DJs list, and was nominated for a Grammy this year for Best Dance Recording.
The excitement doesn’t stop there, as Steve Angello – who dropped an Essential Mix of epic proportions on BBC Radio 1 in March – is a star attraction. Having just launched his label imprint X, he aims to give music “freedom, fuel and new life”. Young DJ genius Alesso has been far from shy to the Beatport Number 1 spot, and comes to Electric Daisy Carnival London ready to prove just what the fuss is about. Hardwell is known for his mind-blowing sets, and looks to deliver something unbelievable at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in July. He’s boss at Revealed Recordings, and his Hardwell On Air podcast is a regular in the iTunes Top Ten.
Electric Daisy Carnival London hosts the Hard Arena, supplying a heavier electro-infused dance music style. French producer Madeon is a teenage producer whose star is in the ascension, whose most recent collaboration is with Ellie Goulding on ‘Stay Awake’. Fake Blood brings his collection of tunes so anthemic, so huge, his set will rattle the arena to the rafters. Porter Robinson joins Electric Daisy Carnival London in the midst of his Circle Assembly Tour. His upcoming MInistry of Sound collaboration with Mat Zo, April’s ‘Easy’, is already being proclaimed one of the tunes of 2013, such is its floor-filler potential. Crookers also gets behind the decks, fresh from his remix of deadmau5 and Imogen Heap’s ‘Telemiscommunications’. Big time producer, DJ and promoter of HARD, Destructo is also in effect. And very special guest Rusko hits heavy, making this one mind-blowing arena.
One of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s most-loved DJs, Mistajam comes to Electric Daisy Carnival London, hosting his very own Speakerbox Arena. Speakerbox has had a fantastic year, pulling together some of the best scenes and skills in urban and bass music. BBC Radio 1 face Jaguar Skills brings his electric-quick mixing and his own eclectic tune selection. Household name Caspa jumps on board. His big and bassy free download ‘Freeze’ is available now, taken from his ‘Alpha Omega’ album due in April. And no arena is complete without its legends. One of the original pioneers of jungle, SHY FX teams up with Stamina MC, and drum’n’bass innovator Goldie joins the ranks. The Speakerbox Arena will be bouncing all day long.
Taking full advantage of the vast space of the former Olympic Park site, expect the full carnival experience with carnival rides, art installations and hundreds of costume-clad performers. As Insomniac’s first venture onto UK shores this event is set to be the show of 2013.
Insomniac has built an international reputation for hosting some one of the biggest shows on the planet, producing more than 250 music events for more than 2,000,000 concert goers across America including a ground-breaking 320,000 revellers to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas annually.
Equally Cream, one of the UK’s longest running and frontline promoters of electronic music, have built an unprecedented reputation for hosting some of the best events the UK has to offer, including the mighty Creamfields festival.
