Chai Wallahs

The critically acclaimed and award winning Chai Wallahs will make its return to Kendal Calling, encouraging true expression of the creative spirit, its diverse musical roster explores dub, reggae, blues, hip-hop, afrobeat, folk, gypsy and rock, delivering a program that always climaxes in THE party of the festival. Chai Wallahs’ long-standing community driven ethos and ethical nature still very much encapsulate the true festival spirit, providing inviting intimate spaces to relax, rejuvenate and recover. Energising its guests this year with a range of breakfasts, pizzas, pastas, brandy chai, rum hot toddies and herbal shots, Chai Wallahs is most definitely the place to fill your soul with All Good Things.

Happy Slap Boutique

Happy Slap Boutique return with a dark, twisted crew of the dead and dying, hellish beasts and freaks of nature. This year we delve in to the shadows with our side splitting, gory stage shows, blood curdling DJs and legendary macabre make-up boutique taking influence from countless 80s Horror films. Happy Slap Boutique's blood-stained inferno is open day and night for all sorts of carnage, but whenever you visit, a party with the dead is something you'll never forget and if you are one of the lucky few, you will discover our secret stage and be treat to one of our crazy, grotesque, intriguing or just surreal shows.

Songsmith Solar

There is nothing better than finding a little common ground and meeting some new faces. Songsmith Solar is a stage nestled away within the Campsite. Music comes courtesy of the Solar Powered Songsmith who have programmed an eclectic bill of music powered by the sun.
