Listen: KC19’s Biggest Anthems!

We’ve done the maths, crunched the numbers and calculated that this year’s line-up has the highest count of absolute bangers of any Kendal Calling in history… From indie classics like Black And White Town and Not Nineteen Forever, via the new-school of Idles, Slowthai and Gerry Cinnamon, and pure smile-on-your-face moments like Good Times, It’s Not Unusual and Chelsea Dagger, it’s going to be one hell of a weekend.
