Closing the final night will be Primal Scream with their glittering back catalogue of genre bending psych-rock.

Rebooked for 2021, their Sunday night headline slot last year was cancelled due to the terrific storm that struck the Herts festival site, causing the event to end prematurely.

Led by frontman Bobby Gillespie, the Loaded and Movin' On Up rockers will be hoping it is third time lucky in July.

Across multiple stages of music, comedy, late night DJs and a whole host of family entertainment, parades and more, Standon Calling is revealing an enormous wealth of talent in today's announcement.
