Hip hop legends De La Soul will top the 13th edition of Standon Calling festival next August.

The New York trio, formed in 1987, made history with their hit debut ‘3 Feet High and Rising’ which was critically lauded and featured the singles ‘Me Myself and I’, ‘The Magic Number‘ and ‘Buddy‘.

Standon Calling bills itself as a “three-day party jam-packed with interactive theatre, art installations, a swimming pool, kids area and kids’ activities, onsite nightclub and the ever-popular fancy dress”.

Standon Calling 2013 takes place from 2 – 4 August at Standon Lordship, Standon, Hertfordshire.

Last year the festival featured performances from Death in Vegas, Beardyman, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Casiokids, Field Music and King Charles.

Festival founder Alex Trenchard said, “We are delighted to have De La Soul headline Standon Calling. It’s an act I’ve wanted to bring to Standon for a while. De La Soul is the first in a series of exciting announcements and the calibre of entertainment we have planned for 2013 is incredibly high. We can’t think of an equivalent three-day festival out there that offers such a competitively priced weekend ticket.”

Standon Calling early bird tickets are available now, priced at £85 each or £79 each for purchases of four or more tickets in one transaction.
