The likes of Mahalia, Jake Bugg, Pale Waves, Griff and Georgia have all been added to the line-up for Standon Calling’s 2021 return.

It comes after the Hertfordshire event previously confirmed that headliners Bastille, Hot Chip and Primal Scream will lead the line-up for the returning festival, which was previously forced to cancel in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s now been confirmed that the second wave of acts will see all the aforementioned artists heading to Standon from July 22-25, alongside the likes of hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash, Shygirl, Lava La Rue and DJ Yoda.

These new names announced today are just another sign that there truly is something for everyone at Standon Calling. I can’t wait to see everyone this July, it’s going to be a special one”.
