AS festival bosses reveal the best line-up yet for Kendal Calling 2019, The Mail's photographer Leanne Bolger has been sifting through the archives to find her best shots of the event from yesteryear.

Leanne said: "I love the festival and have been many times.

"After moving back to Cumbria from living nearer Manchester and Leeds I had a good choice of music venues to go to.

"Not so many larger bands would have Cumbria on their tour but thanks to Kendal Calling the festival has brought some of the biggest bands and artists to our doorsteps."

Kendal Calling is held annually at Lowther Deer Park in Penrith and was founded in 2006. It brings to the county 100’s of bands and entertainment acts.

Leanne said: "It is what I feel is the best festival in the country. I always camp as its great to be in the centre of the festival without having to drive anywhere for four days.

"With tight deadlines for the paper and rushing from stage to stage to try and cover as many acts as possible you have to work hard.

"Photographers are only allowed in the photography pit for the first three songs of each act then normally have to go straight back to the press area to send the pictures so I miss most of the set.

"however I can still soak up the festival atmosphere and sometimes I even get to meet some of the artists if we can secure interviews.

"My 2018 highlight was meeting Tom Grennan for an interview and pictures."

There is something for everyone at the festival its like a pop up resort of live music, food, clubs, bars and entertainment within acres of fields so you can always find a grassy space to relax.

The 2019 line-up will include Tom Jones, The Courteeners, Doves, Manic Street Preachers, Nile Rogers and Chic and Orbital. The festival will run from July 25-28 and will also include Years & Years, Idles, Gerry Cinnamon, Miles Kane, The Fratellis, Gomez and KT Tunstall and many more.
