Orbital and Clean Bandit lead Standon Calling lineup announcement

Slaves, Laura Mvula, Nothing But Thieves and more have also been announced for the Hertfordshire festival. 

Since emerging in the 90s, Orbital have made their way to the top of electronic royalty. Following five years away from the stage, Orbital return, set to grace the Standon Calling stage with anthems like ‘Belfast, ‘Halcyon And On And On’ in their headline set.

Fusing electro beats and classical elements, Clean Bandit have been taking over the pop world since smash hit ‘Rather Be’. With last year’s Christmas number 1 ‘Rockabye’ under their belt, Clean Bandit are providing the festival with a healthy dose of sun-drenched pop.

Heading back to the festival after their set in 2015, Slaves are bringing their unparalleled energy back to Standon, while fellow Mercury Prize nominee Laura Mvula will bring her infectious rhythms.

Elsewhere, Nothing But Thieves, Gary Newman, British Sea Power, Steve Mason and !!! (Chk Chk Chk) make up a wonderfully eclectic lineup. Championing new music, as always, Standon Calling also welcomes the likes of Nadia Rose, Fickle Friends and Cabbage.

With a host of DJs and themed discos, the music doesn’t end at the live music and 2017 is set to be an impressive year for Standon Calling.
