The final four bands have been added to Hertfordshire boutique festival Standon Calling's roster. A line up that already boasted the rare treats of Battles, Saul Williams, Lamb and Hercules and Love Affair can now claim Dananananaykroyd, The Hempolics, Bastille and Pushing Hands.

Standon Calling has garnered a fine reputation over the years for breaking developing bands, with artists like Mumford and Sons debuting intimate shows here. Bastille's sky-arcing vocals and frenetic beat work have been understated thus far, but the outfit's performance here is sure to draw attention and win crowds over. Elsewhere, and regardless what you think of the band name, Dananananaykroyd always give audiences a show to behold- likely showcasing material from latest LP 'There is a way', recorded with iconic American producer Ross Robinson.

Sunday's bill hosts easy-vibe reggae outfit The Hempolics will bring sunclasped chill for all the sleepyheads in recovery, and continue Standon's fine tradition of comfort-music for Sunday souls. Festival booker Tamsin McLarty says of the two smaller bands “Bastille create clever glossy pop and are gathering a loyal following from their memorable live shows. Pulling Hands are the ones I'm on the edge of my seat about, though. I've not seen them live yet, few people have, and the anticipation is bubbling away. They've got this shadowy melancholy that seeps through with occasional shafts of the light of the greats - Talking Heads, Wire, Yo La Tengo”.

Standon Calling takes place over the weekend of August 12th-14th. A three day melange of breakthrough acts, themed fancy dress, immersive narrative and theatrics, on-site swimming pool and all-night bars- Standon Calling is typically intimate, friendly and inviting. Full weekend tickets are available priced at £125, and full details can be found via the festival's webpage.
