Anastacia, Confidence Man, Dylan, Squid, Groove Armada, Katy B, KT Tunstall, Melanie C, Sad Night Dynamite and Lynks are also due to perform.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on Standon Calling’s website.
In addition to live music, Standon Calling offers festival goers free wellbeing classes and workshops.
There is also an on-site pool, street food vendors, a famous dog show, and a colourful parade for ticket-holders to enjoy.
The weekend promises to “bring you the best of everything for everyone”.
The Independent once again partners with the festival this year, and will have its own stage at Laundry Meadows.
Last year, The Independent stage featured performances by Kojey Radical, Sleaford Mods, Bimini, and returning artist Self Esteem.
