And now thanks to all the voters, this message appeared on the Call of the Wild pages a couple of hours ago.


We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped get us SHORTLISTED for the BEST NEW FESTIVAL of 2019.

It means the world to our whole team and hopefully, it means the same to you all as well. We set out on a journey to do things a little differently from the huge corporate festivals & it seems we captured something beautiful that you all loved & happily support above and beyond the call of duty of a gig-goer.

We want to WIN this, but in all honesty, just being recognised after one year is beyond our WILDest dreams!

Get your tickets now for 2020 and join CGCM‘s The Meister on site! The lineup is even better and the whole event expanded for 2020. I can’t wait to see just what’s in store in this sophomore year. Let’s “Raise the Hoof” in Lincolnshire!



The Call of the Wild Festival launched its inaugural event in May of 2019. The festival took place at Lincolnshire Showgrounds, featured three stages and a stacked lineup of bands. While attending the event CGCM‘s Rich “The Meister” Dillon suitably impressed at the organization and thought of every last detail that obviously went into the planning.
