Camper Calling 2021 Announces Biggest Line-Up Yet
Beloved family festival Camper Calling has announced the lineup for its 5th edition, which takes place on 27th-30th August 2021.
“Hits and anthems”
And it’s set to be the biggest Camper Calling bill to date.
All round legends Manic Street Preachers, headline on Sunday and will play hits and anthems from their exhaustive back catalogue, stretching from their 1992 album, Generation Terrorists, to recent release, Resistance is Futile. Throughout the band’s illustrious career they headlined several festivals including Reading and Leeds and Glastonbury.
And Britpop legends Supergrass will be taking over the main stage as your Saturday headliners. The iconic rockers reformed in 2019 to the delight of their fans and with a huge catalogue of hits. This Camper Calling show comes off the back of their 25th-anniversary tour.
Eager campers can also book an extra night and arrive on Thursday afternoon with a host of exclusive entertainment booked for those arriving early. ‘Staying Out for the Summer’ hitmakers Dodgy, ‘Worried about Ray’ and ‘Goodbye Mr A’ legends The Hoosiers and UK Skiffle-Pop Rascals Thrill Collins open the festival in style.
“Totally unforgettable experience”
Shelley Mears, Festival Director said: “The sense of community, joy and togetherness that festivals bring is something we are all longing for right now. Following the recent government announcement, we are optimistically moving forward and planning for the best Camper Calling yet. We can’t wait to be back in a field dancing with you and your loved ones under the sun!”
Playing for ‘All You Good Good People’, at Camper Calling are the one and only, Embrace. Following in the footsteps of Oasis and The Verve, Embrace found their feet in post-Brit-pop Britain in the late 90s.
‘Mama Do’ and ‘Boys and Girls’ hitmaker Pixie Lott makes her Camper Calling debut on Sunday. The pop star has recently captured the nation’s heart as a coach from The Voice Kids UK and is an amazing live act. Camper Calling’s idyllic setting and Pixie’s atmospheric pop will equal a totally unforgettable experience.
Friday night at Camper Calling becomes Ibiza Calling bringing attendees a flavour of the white isle all night long. Celebrate the European island of clubbing with unforgettable heart-pounding dance classics created by DJ and producer Andy Joyce and composer Steve Etherington.
