The Happy slap boutique area returns with DJ’S, crazy games & activities and secret surprises

This year Kendal Calling unveil that the fancy dress theme will be Fairy Tales & Comic Books, a magical all encompassing theme that will see the site transform on Saturday, with the entire congregation encouraged to get involved!

Getting dressed up for a festival is all about becoming another version of you, an exaggerated, bold and colourful character. With the backdrop of the stunning Lake District, Kendal Calling expects to see everyone from the pied piper to Wolverine, Little Red Riding Hood to Catwoman, the Gingerbread to Tin Tin all partying together.

Kendal Calling will once again have the crazy world of the Happy Slap Boutique. This area is where anything goes, and is the home of electro swing and eclectic music. Happy Slap Boutique will present a world of fairy tales and mischief and will be keeping the entertainment going all weekend. Bump into Jack Sprat, a narcoleptic sleeping beauty or climb up Rapunzel's hair and witness their take on your classic fairy tales. Performers will be traveling around the festival doing walk-about performance where it’s least expected with music, song, dance and ridiculousness.

As night falls, Happy Slap Boutique transforms into a plethora of circus, fire and glow performances alongside clowning, grotesque burlesque, world famous 'Rave Aerobics' and surprise acts that keep buzzing all night. DJs Ocelus, Tom Excell, Dan The Hat, Wolfie Rassmatazz, Magic Lantern, Vinyl Rights Experience, Mikey J & very special guests will spin a genre defying mix of electro swing, jungle, balkan, breakbeat, house & electro.

The line up this year includes Dizzee Rascal, James, Maximo Park, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, We Are Scientists, The View and many more.

Kendal Calling - 27-29th Jul 2012 - Lowther Castle & Gardens
