INTERVIEW :: KT Tunstall at Standon Calling 2017

A Grammy award-winning artist who chooses to live and create in the moment. Her anti-slick, pro-wild psychedelic pop has always proved the perfect antidote to the superficial side of the charts, and remains a huge lure.

We sat down with KT Tunstall at Standon Calling to get the latest on her new album KIN, her time spent in California and plans for the rest of summer, including OnBlackheath festival in London on Sunday 10th September.

Review :: Standon Calling 2017

There’s a lot to like about Standon Calling. The sweeping fields surrounding the boutique festival add a picturesque quality as you arrive deep within the centre of Hertfordshire. Well-directed and easily accessible, campers immediately feel at ease as they approach the site and unpack, with the festival itself only a stones throw away with access to showers and fully functioning toilets that are secure and routinely checked.

Priding itself on its family friendly attitude, Standon offers an experience that caters for all ages. Perhaps also being one of the most dog-friendly festivals in the UK, it was pleasing to see a number of four-legged canines parading around the fields. Though maybe limiting certain areas would have been advisable as festival goers run the risk of accidentally treading on a few paws whilst shuffling through the crowds.
