2014 dates confirmed as 1st - 3rd August
A 5000-strong crowd enjoyed Standon Calling's first ever sell out event over the weekend of 2nd - 4th August 2013 in Hertfordshire. To celebrate the success Super Early Bird tickets to 2014's festival are now on sale at only o85 for an adult/youth weekend pass via the Standon Calling website.
The festival's most successful year to date saw performances across the spectrums of pop, indie, dance and hip-hop. Headliners Digitalism, Band Of Skulls and the legendary De La Soul crowned the mainstage, whilst the Big Top saw bill-topping turns from The Joy Formidable, DJ Yoda & Trans-Siberian Marching Band and AlunaGeorge. Elsewhere fans gathered for chart-toppers Bastille and the up-and-coming trio London Grammar. Night owls who flocked to the 'Cowshed' and Big Top stages in the small hours were in the safe hands of Nina Kraviz, Simian Mobile Disco, Gilles Peterson and many more.
Elsewhere Gorilla Circus' trapeze school ran sold out classes for hundreds on their outdoor rig and 30 people became part of the show themselves in Standon Calling People's Circus.
2013 saw the first implementation of RFID wristbands and a completely cash free site. Speeding up bar service and improving safety for all the system was fault free throughout the weekend and used, without major issue, by all festival-goers over the weekend. Standon Calling's RFID system was installed and managed by Glownet.

For a very limited time tickets will be o85 for an adult/youth weekend pass (12+ years) and o10 for a child weekend pass (4-12 years), infants (0-3 years) will remain free when accompanied by an adult weekend ticket holder.
