Live Nation’s premier dad rock brand, Calling Festival, is reportedly taking a break in 2016.

Pollstar reports that the classic rock festival, which was held on Clapham Common last summer, will not return this year.

The genre of acts are not there, so it was deemed to give it a rest,” one source told Pollstar.

Calling Festival was first launched in 2006 under the moniker Hyde Park Calling.

Now renamed Hard Rock Calling, the event moved to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2013.

After just one edition at the Olympic site, it moved to Clapham Common as a two-day event in 2014, Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith headlining.

One more edition took place in 2015, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headlining the now single-day festival.

The Police, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney have all headlined the event over the years.

We reached out to Live Nation for a comment but they have yet to respond.
