LONDON (2 Feb. 2015) – Live Nation today announces Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds as the headliner for Calling Festival, which takes place in Clapham Common on Saturday 4 July 2015. Ryan Adams, The Hives and Echo and the Bunnymen are also confirmed for the bill. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday 6 Feb. at www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline Saturday 4 July at Calling Festival, the band’s first appearance at the Clapham Common event and first outdoor headline performance. 2015 is set to be a huge year for the guys as it will see the release of their eagerly awaited second studio album Chasing Yesterday.
Ryan Adams is also confirmed and ready to play a thundering set at Calling Festival 2015. The prolific singer-songwriter will perform hits from his incredible back catalogue and tracks from his latest self-titled album, which reached Number 6 in the UK album charts.
The Hives make a welcomed return to the festival. Get ready for a set filled with top and tails, air kicks, incorrigible humour, energetic rock and the biggest tracks from the band’s extensive repertoire. Finally Echo and the Bunnymen, one of the most acclaimed British alt-groups of the ‘80s, are confirmed for some incredible, dark and gloomy post punk fused with ‘60s inspired psychedelia.
Toby Leighton-Pope, Live Nation’s vice president of promotions, said: “We’re so pleased with the Calling Festival 2015 bill. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be incredible and we’re so happy to welcome the fantastic Ryan Adams, The Hives and Echo and the Bunnymen. This year is going to be huge and we look forward to seeing the crowds back in Clapham this summer.“
Calling Festival is taking place at one of London’s premier outdoor locations. The multi-stage festival is steeped in heritage, where music icons Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Paul Simon, The Who, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, The Killers, Bon Jovi and more have all previously jetted in to headline its main stage. Last year, over 80,000 people flocked to Clapham Common to experience music from legends Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith, plus an amazing daytime lineup of top musicians.
Calling Festival features an array of high-end eateries, luxury champagne bars, craft beer and quality produce. Festivalgoers can soak up the atmosphere in a beautiful London surrounding with incredible on- site facilities. The event is perfect for music fans, families and people who want to enjoy a first class open-air music experience.
