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.

UK Foo Fighters Tribute

Music Act, Adults, Teens, Saturday, Lakeside Stage

It’s been a huge year for the UK’s premier Foo Fighters tribute band, and we’re glad that they’ll be making Camper Calling part of their 2016 story. 

With an expansive back catalogue of the American rock legend’s seminal tracks under their belt, the UK Foo Fighters Tribute will be bringing all the energy and bounce you’d expect from Dave Grohl and the gang!

It isn’t very often that you see such a wild reaction in a crowd at a tribute band gig, but on this occasion, it was completely justified – the UK Foo Fighters Tribute were already beginning to sound like a close, almost carbon copy of the Foo Fighters themselves.
— Nicola Claire Allen, The Demon
Jay, obviously loving every minute, somehow recreates that famous Grohl swagger without, at any point, losing his own identity as a fantastic performer and showman in his own right.
— Jacqueline Grima, Humanity Hallows

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…
