Skunk Anansie

Lakeside Stage, Music Act

Emerging from London in 1994, electrifying everyone who saw them and jamming an adrenaline shot into the arm of a decadent music scene, they sounded and looked like nothing that had come before them. With tracks like "Weak", "Hedonism" and "Charlie Big Potato" they truly carved their own path. Almost 25 years on, this is arguably their greatest measure of success; nobody has ever come close to imitating them.

We are so thrilled to announce that Skunk Anansie will be headlining the Lakeside stage on Sunday at Camper Calling!

Fear not, The Fratellis are now headlining Saturday night!
