Editors, Kate Tempest and KT Tunstall added to Standon Calling line up

Standon Calling has announced that Editors, Kate Tempest and many more have been added to this year’s line up.

Leading the newly added names are Editors, who will be bringing their 5-album-spanning career to Hertfordshire this summer . They’ll be joined by straight-to-the-bone Kate Tempest and Scotland’s folk blues and vintage indie-rock songstress KT Tunstell.

Sheffield folk-pop favourites Slow Club are sure to deliver a spellbinding set of classics and new cuts alike following the release of third studio LP One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Anymore. Award-winning actor and DJ Idris Elba will be delivering a set across genres, styles and generations.

Also joining the likes of Slaves, Laura Mvula and Gary Numan are comedian, actor and rapper Doc Brown, disco-spinner Lindstrøm and underground disco-operators Horse Meat Disco. Check out all of today’s announced acts below.
