Solihull Editorial 1st Mar, 2017   0

REEF, Cast and the Lightning Seeds – the three amazing acts confirmed to headline Camper Calling in the idyllic grounds of Ragley Hall near Alcester on the August Bank Hooliday weekend.

Back for its second year and promising to be even more spectacular, the three-day event will feature scores more fabulous musical acts, a beer festival, family circus and children’s workshop, fair rides, access to the adventure playground, watersports on the lake, fabulous foods and more besides.

The brain-child of the team behind Camper Jam at Weston Park, the music and entertainment extravaganza quickly established itself as the Midlands’s finest family friendly, boutique music festival featuring some of the very best loved bands and emerging new music.

Adding to the stellar headliners,Camper Calling has also announced four more acts for the 2017 line-up – 90s indie legends Space, indie-punk act The Ordinary Boys, Birmingham reggae stars Musical Youth and X Factor break-out star Lucy Spraggan also join line -up.

Festival director Shelley Bond said: “We are so excited with this years line-up so far.

“The bands that we have announced are a true reflection of Camper Calling and what we stand for. We’ve worked hard to deliver a line-up we believe everyone will love.

“Over the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing the rest of the line-up, as well as all the additional experiences that Camper Calling will have to offer including award-winning street food, family activities and much more.”

You don’t need to be a camper van owner or enthusiast to enjoy the festival.
