Gear up to begin your festival experience on the journey to the festival itself. In the honor of Kendall Calling festival’s 10th birthday, the pre-ferstival insanity begins on the train to the venue. 

Virgin Trains, being one of the partners of the festival, are hosting an idiosyncratic pre-fest party on the likes of their own trains. Considered a part of the festivities, this will be the first ever festival on a train. Excited?

Join the non-stop, privately chartered party straight from Manchester Piccadilly to Penrith North Lakes. With some of the festival’s best entertainment, this really is a great way to celebrate its 10th birthday. It’s like Adrian Varma, Senior Partnerships and Marketing Manager at Virgin Trains says, “We want the fun to start at the station, so we’re inviting people to party all the way to Kendal Calling, arriving in style in the fastest, most enjoyable way possible.”

Here’s a video announcement by Richard Branson, released by the festival on Twitter.

The train departs from Manchester Piccadily on July 31 at 11am . Book your tickets HERE.
