How old do you have to be to attend Kendal Calling?

All ages are welcome at Kendal Calling! You must ensure that you have the correct ticket type for your age when the festival begins. We do have a few rules to bear in mind though:


  • Age 11 to 15 weekend tickets must be accompanied by a ticket holding parent or guardian over the age of 30 throughout the festival and must camp in the same area as their families.
  • Teen ticket holders (age 11-15) are not allowed unaccompanied in the arena after 10pm.
  • By purchasing a child (age 10 & under) ticket or a teen (age 11-15) ticket you are confirming that you are either the parent or legal guardian of the teen or child for whom you are purchasing.
  • We operate a challenge 25 policy and so it is advised brings proof of age for the purchase of alcohol. We operate a challenge 25 policy. 16 and 17 year-olds need to bring proof of ID to enter unaccompanied by an adult.
