Standon Calling's first ever four-day festival was enjoyed by 17,000 people.

As he confirmed the dates for next's year's event – July 20 to 23 – founder and director Alex Trenchard reflected on the evolution of the musical extravaganza that began as his birthday barbecue in 2001.

By 2004, it was a one-day live music event with a single stage and by the next year, the second stage had arrived. In 2006, Standon Calling became a two-day festival with a full-size main stage.

The step up to three days came in 2008 and by 2015, the festival was being enjoyed by 10,000 people and earning a reputation for discovering new talent.

This year was the first time the festival featured a main stage headliner on Thursday with a nostalgic performance by Madness.

Alex said: "Here's to our first ever four-day festival weekend here at Standon! We're completely blown away from witnessing this festival's best line-up yet coming to life across all these beautiful stages, and just want to thank everyone who makes this festival possible. Especially those who worked hard through the 40C heat last week to set the scene for so many magical moments and good times together.

"We've been blessed with wonderful weather over the weekend itself and have been so proud to host so many of the best artists in the world at Standon Calling. Everyone who came to witness the show pulled out all the stops for the Toys costume parade and created such a fun and inclusive atmosphere for all the family to enjoy, I really think this is the friendliest festival in the UK! Welcoming all 17,000 of you to my family home each year is a testament to you our wonderful Standon family. Let's do this all again on July 20-23, 2023!"
