Standon Calling 2019

We were back at Standon Calling for our fifth year - and it keeps growing from strength to strength!

The event was founded by Alex Trenchard in 2004 and since then it's grown from a birthday barbecue to a one-day one-stage event to the multi-stage event it is today.

This year's event continued the festival's tradition of bringing in some real big hitters, with headline slots from Rag 'n' Bone Man, Wolf Alice and Nile Rodgers and Chic.

Phoenix FM were official media partners this year and our team - Matt Horton, Jonny Gurnett, Stewart Pink, Steve Robertson, Paul Golder and Nick Field - chatted to bands, comedians, singers and organisations, all of which you can hear below.
