KENDAL Calling was back last weekend; we flocked to the fields for a weekend of music and we left with nothing but memories.

The music started with Haçienda Classiçal who put on a great show. Their remixes of popular songs including classic 80s hits were a great start to the weekend.

This is the second time I have seen Haçienda Classiçal at Kendal and the show was even better than the last. The lighting was great in the dark of night as Thursday drew to a close.

Scouting for Girls were another great performance.

Their popular hits were known by mostly everyone in the crowd so we all got involved.

Friday afternoon when they played was lovely, weather-wise, so it was a perfect set from them and got us all excited for September when they will play in Whitehaven.

Tom Grennan played shortly after and was my favourite act of the weekend.

He got all the crowd going and played some of his most popular songs as well as new material.

His stage presence was amazing and he promised that he would be back to the festival again to headline as his popularity grows.

Another act I unexpectedly enjoyed was Bill Bailey. I did not set out intending to watch him before I arrived at Kendal but I am glad I did.

His comedy mixed with his fantastic musical talent got all the crowd laughing and cheering. 

I also saw Northern Threads over the weekend. The Whitehaven-based band played on an open stage but the rain did not stop the crowds and the music as they put on a great set.

The last main act of the weekend I saw were The Kooks, the popular indie band played their best hits mixed with songs new and old.

The crowd for the band was heaving and many mosh pits towards the front were started.

One of their most popular songs, 'Naive', had everyone up on their feet singing along.

Kendal Calling promised to show the Womens' Euro final and they delivered.

There was an 'Oktoberfest' tent where the football was shown (slightly ironic considering we played Germany) and the energy and atmosphere in there was unmatched.

Everyone was up on their feet chanting and roaring the women along as they brought it home.

It was one of the highlights of my weekend.

Kendal Calling have annouced that over 98 per cent of tents were taken home so pretty much everyone truly left 'nothing but memories' after a great weekend.
