Thousands from Lancaster are expected to turnout to this year’s Kendal Calling Festival.

Within just a week of its announcement Kendal Calling, set in Lowther Deer Park, sold out – with 25,000 snapping up tickets.

Building on their success organisers have decided to release 2018 tickets ahead of schedule to cope with demand.

Fans who missed out on this year can secure tickets for the next one with a payment plan.

“Those unlucky enough to miss out on tickets can now get in on 2018 tickets before this year’s festival even commences,” said a Kendal Calling spokesman.

“Payments will be spread over 15 months, bringing the monthly instalment down to £8.93.”
