Call Of The Wild Festival 2023’s Friday Headliners Are The Kris Barras Band

Short listed in TWO categories (Best Family Festival & The Grassroots Festival Award) at the UK Festival Awards 2022 in just it’s second year, Call Of The Wild Festival is certainly aiming to be the leader of the pack. With its family friendly atmosphere and diverse line up, there’s something for absolutely everyone and with our latest round of announcements we hope we fulfil your expectations.

Friday nights headline band are no strangers to Lincolnshire, having stopped off here several times already, their main man has been part of the Led Zeppelin Symphonic shows at London Palladium, he also fronts Supersonic Blues Machine he’s an ex- MMA/Cage fighter and his bands latest album ‘Death Valley Paradise‘ sees him take a more rock fuelled road which has been received to massive critical acclaim……..

Call Of The Wild is proud to announce The Kris Barras Band.

The Cruel Intentions will be Bringing their Swedish/Norwegian Rock ’N Roll for the first time to Call Of The Wild, their latest album ‘Venomous Anonymous‘ is a spitting, dirty slab of music which festival band booker Raz White has on constant rotation at COTW HQ. We cannot wait to see these guys rip the stage apart. The Karma Effect are a band who’ve been on the Call Of The Wild radar since their inception, describing themselves as bringing a 21st century take on classic 70’s rock they’re a band who’ll fill the Sunday groove perfectly, an exciting young band we think have a massive future ahead of them.

Joining them will be a further 20 bands listed below throughout the weekend, plus Call Of The Wild gets prehistoric on the Saturday when we’ll be joined by a full sized Richie the Raptor & the Baby Dinosaurs which is sure to send your little cavemen & cavewomen wild. If you have enough energy left they may be The Pretender bringing Times Like These but the Fu Fighters aftershow party in the Marquee from 11pm on

Saturday is certainly going to bring out The Best Of You!
