If you’ve been reading my posts in recent weeks you’ll know i’m off to Kendal Calling this weekend, which was the first festival I went to back in 2009. I’m guessing a lot has changed since I last went (I think the main stage was smaller than most festival beer tents) and as with most festivals they have a theme going on. This year’s theme is ‘carnival of colour’ which fits right in with my blog name…
Award winning outdoor clothing and accessories brand, Regatta will be back at the festival this year, giving festival-goers another exciting experience.
The lively Regatta stage will be fully embracing this year’s ‘carnival of colour’ theme as they introduce Tag Me In, a new addition to their line-up, where revellers can pick up a free t-shirt and get their hands mucky as they colour their tee using as many different spray paints as they dare! Sounds good right? I’ll be heading down to see what I can do.

Anyone who tags themselves at Kendal Calling with their graffiti tee on the Regatta Facebook page will automatically be entered to win £500 of kit each day of the festival.
The outdoor clothing brand will also be housing a fully-fledged shop at the festival for any last minute purchases, stocking everything from essential waterproofs to tents and torches. There’s always something you forget.
Jo Hawkins, Marketing Director at Regatta, commented:“We’re really excited to be back at Kendal Calling festival this year as it represents a wide mix of customers, from young families to millennials who want to look stylish yet stay dry in the, more often than not, wet and muddy fields of a festival.”
