Call of the Wild festival announce further additions to the line up and it's MASSIVE!! 27 Jan

COTW are also happy to announce that Thursday night will host a warm-up party in the Exhibition Hall & feature Stevie R. Pearce & The Hooligans. Two further support bands will also be added to the night. This is bolstered by the news of a FREE bar each day from 11am - 1pm in the VIP area, provided by Motörhead Beer!

After raising hell at last years festival, the rabble rousing sinners from Cloven Hoof Rum are back bigger and badder. Cloven Hoof are proud sponsors of the second stage, where many of the bands they endorse will be performing and quite literally raising Th Hoof!

The multi-talented Pete K Mally - rock compere/DJ/comedian and author -will be launching his brand-new novel ‘The Call’ at this year’s festival. It couldn’t be more apt as the novel – a comedy set in the world of rock and roll – follows Dom Young (frontman of classic rock band Raven Black Whiskey Stone) along the path to success, and features our very own festival in the last third of the tale! Pete will be doing a special signing session each day of the festival.

Call of the Wild Festival were not just nominated but shortlisted at the UK Festival Awards 2019 for the BEST NEW FESTIVAL of 2019 This festival is already becoming legend, featuring prominently in a new novel, which will be launched at Call of the Wild 2020!

After its triumphant 2019 debut, Call of the Wild Festival will return in 2020, rising to new heights. COTW’s next cycle takes place between 29th-31st May 2020 at the Lincolnshire Showground.

Check the website for further details and updates - a further 50 VIP upgrades to be released on Monday 27th January. Book soon to avoid disappointment!
