This year Kendal Calling have unveiled a fancy dress theme - Fairy Tales & Comic Books, a magical all encompassing concept to transform the site on Saturday, with the entire congregation encouraged to get involved.

For their third year, Kendal Calling want revellers to bring out the best of their imaginations for the fancy dress.

Kendal Calling chiefs believe getting dressed up for a festival is all about becoming another version of you, an exaggerated, bold and colourful character. So this year they are transforming the Deer Park into another world with our theme Fairy Tales & Comic Books.

With the backdrop of the stunning Lake District, the UK's Best Small Festival winnner expects to see everyone from the Pied Piper to Wolverine, Little Red Riding Hood to Catwoman, the Gingerbread Man and Tin Tin all partying together.

The fun and frolics continues at Kendal Calling in the crazy world of the Happy Slap Boutique. This area will be like no other and is where anything goes, and is the home of electro swing and eclectic music. A haven to transform into creatures and characters, the Happy Slap face-painting boutique will get revelers ready to be immersed in magical worlds, dazzled by spectacular cabaret shows, wowed by our travelling circus and entertained in ways you never thought possible.

Happy Slap Boutique present a world of fairy tales and mischief full of secrets to explore and discover, keeping the entertainment going all weekend. Bump into Jack Sprat, a narcoleptic sleeping beauty or climb up Rapunzel's hair and witness their take on your classic fairy tales. Performers will be traveling around the festival doing walk-about performance where it’s least expected with music, song, dance and ridiculousness.

As night falls, Happy Slap Boutique transforms into a plethora of circus, fire and glow performances alongside clowning, grotesque burlesque, world famous 'Rave Aerobics' and surprise acts that keep buzzing all night.

DJs Ocelus, Tom Excell, Dan The Hat, Wolfie Rassmatazz, Magic Lantern, Vinyl Rights Experience, Mikey J & very special guests will spin a genre defying mix of electro swing, jungle, balkan, breakbeat, house & electro.

Tickets have been getting snapped up for this years Kendal Calling festival and a full to bursting line up has already been unveiled that includes Dizzee Rascal, James, Maximo Park, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, We Are Scientists, The View and many more.
