10 Acts You Have To See At Standon Calling

We're off to Standon Calling this year, and with the Hertfordshire festival being a highly respected event this year they've managed to bag some quite amazing bands and performers. Check out who we're excited to see below.

Maximo Park

Now here's a band that's well use to playing the festival circuit, having been around for a while now expect the Newcastle band to bring out the hits and give you a performance to remember for the rest of the summer!


The B-Town boys are back on the road and with a new album in the wings, expect a cover of Binary Finary's "1998" along-side some of their hits such as "Wraith", "Bloodshake" and new songs "Money" and "World Pleasure".


The local lads - Stevenage - are opening the mainstage for this year after winning Standon Calling's un-signed competition. They've played a handful of shows so far, but you can check out their debut demo "Blow" below, which, of course we love!


Heavenly signees released their debut album last year and are continuing with the push with playing some festivals. Expect some dark and brooding songs from the London band.

Saint Raymond 

The Nottingham youngster will be bringing himself and his band down to Standon to play a selection of songs from his forthcoming album, expect some bright and spritely indie jangles with infectious hooks.

East India Youth

William Doyle, better known by his stage name East India Youth will be bringing his electronic tracks from Bournemouth to the field in Standon performing tracks from his first album, "Total Strife Forever".

Say Lou Lou

Australian and Swedish by genetics, the sisterly duo will be performing their dreamy electronic smash hits to Standon, we're expecting some gorgeous vocals and some great melodies, do not miss this set!


Re-formed for their yearly jaunt to the festival, the band shares members with Waste (see above). But with some old-school Indie tunes amongst their repertoire be sure to stick around and wake up early for these guys!

Amber Run

Having been on tour with Kodaline in recent months the band would've surely got a whole lot better over the past year, and with their latest melodic anthem "I Found" just being released expect to hear some future hits in their set!

Eliza and the Bear

Having seen them back in 2011/2012 - I can't honestly remember when it was -  playing their first ever show in London I'm very excited to see how they've progressed since. With an album on the cards soon be sure to pop on over to see them play!
