Rag’n’Bone Man to headline Friday night at Standon Calling 2019
One of pop’s most recognisable voices, Rag’n’Bone Man, has been announced as the first headliner taking to the stage at next year’s Standon Calling.
After years of grafting, touring around the country and creating bold music that jumped between genres, the 33-year-old’s breakthrough anthem Human became the song of 2017, storming the charts, leading to BRIT Awards and making his debut album the fastest selling release of the decade so far.
With an arsenal of hits and an unmissable live show, the distinctive baritone’s headline slot on Standon Calling’s Friday stage promises to be a thrilling return – with a glimpse into his hotly-anticipated next chapter.
As the announcement was made, Rory Charles Graham, better known as Rag'n'Bone Man said: “Standon Calling has been one of those festivals I’ll always tell my mates to go to because the vibe is always great, so I’m pretty hyped to be playing it again next year.”
Founder and festival director Alex Trenchard said: “It’s been phenomenal seeing the rise of Rag’n’ Bone Man over recent years. He's someone who has already graced our stages twice on his way to becoming one of the standout figures in pop not only in the UK but around the world. Every year when we ask Standon festival-goers who they’d like to see play, he’s always up there at the top - so we’re delighted to be welcoming him back to headline the Friday night, in what’s sure to be a special singalong moment.”
