Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headline the Clapham Common rock fest

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Ryan Adams And The Shining, The Hives, Echo And The Bunnymen, Modest Mouse, Wolf Alice + more.

Back for a second year on Clapham Common, Calling Festival still sounds a bit like a telesales conference but packs a punch with its rock-leaning line-up. This year’s guitar-slingers-in-chief are Noel Gallagher and his psychedelic gang the High Flying Birds, with support sets on Saturday by raw country-rock dude Ryan Adams, Swedish garage-punks The Hives, starry-eyed new wave veterans Echo And The Bunnymen, US indie band Modest Mouse and London’s young grunge crew Wolf Alice.

OK, so the truth is I would have preferred to be moshing to Metallica at Glastonbury

But a gift of 4 tickets saw me and the family heading to Clapham Common for Calling.

Didn't expect much but Joe Bonamassa and Aerosmith really delivered. Can't be bothered with today's line up as last time I saw Stevie Wonder he lectured us all about God. Just don't need that.
