A status update on the festival’s Facebook page today (Monday) read: “Third headliner booked and set to be announced soon!! So, who will bring down the curtain on Standon this summer?”

Tickets for this summer’s festival have been selling fast following the initial line-up announcement, and fans can expect another big name headliner on the final night.

The festival’s official Twitter handle, @StandonCalling, tweeted last week: “Buzzzzzzzzzz goes our first line up announcement. We’ve never sold so many tickets after an announcement before...”

Fan @matthewfossey tweeted the festival: “Standon Calling looks enormous – frank turner and maximo park man.”

And Standon Calling replied: “@matthewfossey wait for third headliner!”

The Standon 2014 line-up also includes Amber Run, Beans On Toast, Charli XCX and recent UK chart-toppers Clean Bandit.

Also confirmed so far across the weekend are Easy Star All Stars, Leisure Society, Peace, Saint Raymond, Imperial Leisure, The Cuban Brothers, The Heavy, The Other Tribe, TOY and fast-rising UK star Ella Eyre, who stole the show at last month’s BRIT Awards by performing with Bastille and Rudimental.

The festival’s theme this year will be Lost in Latin America.

Super-early bird tickets have already sold out, but tier one adult weekend passes are available now from www.standon-calling.com at £119 for a limited period.

Days tickets may go on sale for Standon from June, depending on numbers of weekend sales.

Further announcements, including additions to the line-up, DJ programme, fringe entertainment, swimming pool area, dog show and more will be made over the coming months.
