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!

Sleeper

Music Act, Lakeside Stage

Achieving 8 Top 40 singles including, Sale of the Century, What Do I Do Now and Inbetweener across 3 Top 10 albums with well over 1,000,000 sales; Sleeper enjoyed huge critical and commercial success in the mid-90s.
Their music is characterized by astute, observational lyrics and big, hook driven melodies. Fronted by the iconic Louise Wener, who headed up a movement that brought women center stage in guitar music.

With tracks you’ll know and love transporting you right back to the mid-90s, you’ll love reliving this iconic era!

Tony Christie

National treasure, Tony Christie joins the Calling.

Don’t Go Down To Reno, stay another night at Camper Calling!

At the age of 14, (now 21 years old) Casey wrote his first song, Trampoline. He tells you this almost casually - about a song that, on its release last year, was playlisted at Radio 1, reached No 2 on Spotify’s UK Viral 50 chart and has racked up more than 500,000 streams.

We’re expecting big things Casey and we’re excited to have him on our Lakeside stage on Sunday.

Fresh from a tour with the one and only P!NK, we are absolutely thrilled to have them perform on our Lakeside stage on Saturday.

Fronted by the vocal powerhouse that is Anastasia Walker, Bang Bang Romeo are a propelling force for female-fronted bands in a male-dominated industry, and a strong and open voice for the LGBT community. Anastasia's ‘once in 20 years voice’ is unrivalled and the group’s larger-than-life performances are sending audiences wild up and down the country.

Beans on Toast

Music Act, Lakeside Stage
Beans on ToastWEB.jpg

After more than 12 years in the game, Essex born songwriter Beans on Toast has become something of a cult figure. He’s written and recorded 10 albums, he’s played every bar, club, venue, pub, festival, party and honky tonk you can think of and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, he’s loved every minute of it.

He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues. Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honest lyrics and quick wit.
