Connie Constance and English Teacher join Standon Calling line-up
A host of new names have been added to Standon Calling's bill as the final countdown begins to the four-day music festival this month.
Fresh from being playlisted on BBC Radio 1's airwaves, Hertfordshire singer-songwriter Connie Constance will be joined on the main stage by pop-noir artist Kings Elliot. She has just touched down in the UK following a string of US tour dates with Imagine Dragons.
Elsewhere on the Standon Lordship site, there will be performances by the post-punk band and Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition runners-up, English Teacher; Kamal, the bedroom pop prodigy fresh from an appearance on Jools Holland; DIY rap hero and The Guardian's Album Of The Year contender Jeshi; hotly-tipped Australian goth-popstars HighSchool; singer, songwriter and producer Bored At My Grandma's House plus biting guitar band The Rills.
New additions to The Dive Bar include No Go Stop, Super Panela, Suntou Susso Band, Louie Forward and Fused who will all be performing on Thursday (July 21). The Arlo Parks-backed Porij, electronic trio PVA and exciting Cardiff rapper Juice Menace will also be appearing across the weekend.
Festival founder and director Alex Trenchard said: "We're delighted to complete our 2022 lineup with the hottest new talent across the music spectrum. If you don't yet know Kamal. Porij, Jeshi or Hertfordshire local rising star Connie Constance then prepare to be blown away in just two weeks' time when we open the gates to Standon Calling!
"This year's festival is going to be special and we've got both old and new tricks up our sleeves! See you soon Standoners!"
Standon regulars will be pleased to hear that Beefy Melons Vintage Temple Of Love And Gratitude also makes a welcome return to the festival being headlined by Madness, Anne-Marie, Loyle Carner and Prima Scream from July 21 to 29. For tickets see http://www.standon-calling.com/tickets
