Bring your sunhat and dancing shoes: Four is the magic number.

Providing the perfect music for your Friday night at Camper Calling, we welcome The Magic Numbers to the main stage.

Four critically acclaimed albums including huge summer soundtracking hits like Forever Lost, Take A Chance & Love Me Like You, this double sibling, double platinum festival favourites will have you up on your feet immediately. 

With their incredible harmonies, bittersweet melodies and a decade of touring under the belts, The Magic Numbers are the perfect fit to start the the weekend off. 

Their predilection for a bittersweet nugget surfaced again with a cover of Skeeter Davis’ immaculately tragic The End Of The World, previously used to impress Neil Young on a recent tour, which showcased the tight three-part harmonies of Stodart, his sister Michele and keyboard player Angela Gannon.

Dodgy

Music Act, Adults, Friday

Regulars of the early/mid-’90s Camden pop scene, along with Britpop superstars Blur, Dodgy came with their infectious and goofy punk-pop likened to early The Who or The Stone Roses.

With seminal works such as “Staying Out For The Summer”, “If You’re Thinking Of Me”, and “Good Enough” on their hitlist, it’s time to travel back to the 90s!

Live performance has always been integral to the Dodgy experience, and it’s this approach that has helped them maintain a cult following for over 25 years. Nigel, Mathew, and Andy are working hard on their new album that we can’t wait to get in our ears later this year!

Hey, if it’s good enough for you…

Dodgy’s fifth album is a musical reunion worth celebrating…
— John Harris, The Guardian

Mused

Music Act, Friday, Lakeside Stage

Mused are the UK’s authentic Muse concert experience and come armed with all your favourite Muse tracks in their arsenal, pulling from each of the band’s studio albums.

Not only do these guys look like Muse, they sound just like them: Totally amazing!
— Johnny Doom, Kerrang Radio

There’s no denying that Matt Bellamy has one of the most unique and recognisable voices in rock yet, somehow, Carl’s managed to recreate his tone, his swagger, and his musicianship with effortless ease. Team that with a pitch perfect rhythm section of drummer Chris and bassist Stu, you’ll be hard pressed to tell the difference onstage.

Wille and the Bandits

Music Act, Friday, Lakeside Stage

Likened to such iconic acts as Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience and hailing from Cornwall, this blues rock three-piece come dripping with classic sensibilities.

Wille and the Bandits bring a tight performance and instrumental virtuosity rarely seen within the live arena with a range of instruments getting stage time, sometimes even in the same song!

Listed as one of the top ten bands to see at Glastonbury 2014 by Radio 1, Wille and the Bandits will be at Camper Calling 2016 with their fresh approach to blues rock.

The Future Dub Project

Music Act, Friday, Lakeside Stage

An apt band name: The Future Dub Project is a hybrid of computing and dub power that creates progressive new music greater than the some of its parts.

Littered with subs and samples, The Future Dub Project effortlessly combine reggae, drum & bass, breakbeat and everything in between to create a truly vibrant live show and the perfect party vibe for Camper Calling 2016.

They seamlessly blend all the best bits of electronic and reggae music together and have one of the best rhythm sections I’ve ever seen – definitely one of my favourite things happening in the UK live music scene right now.
— Jonathan Doyle, The Skints
I witnessed a great performance from a very competent group at Secret Garden Party this year. A dance-floor friendly set building to a frenzy containing every dance style imaginable. A slick performance from a very tight band.
— Danny Templeman, Submotion Orchestra

 

 

B O M B S

Music Act, Friday

In B O M B S, Bristol has produced another in a long line of accomplished acts that fuse ethereal sounds with hip hop and electronic aesthetics. The band walk the trip-hop line loosely, dancing all over it and bringing an air of fun to the whole affair.
