A short documentary that captures the struggles music festivals faced in 2021 focusses on none other than Hertfordshire's Standon Calling. 

Music festivals: a high-risk business (produced by the Financial Times) takes a look at the obstacles Standon Calling - and other festivals - navigated to welcome music lovers and festival goers once again this year.

In Standon Calling's case, for the 15th time.

The documentary, which runs for 20 minutes also features Latitude, British Summer Time, Wilderness and Boomtown. 

It includes interviews with organisers, bands and stage hands to find out if British music festivals can bounce back from the pandemic. 

For Standon Calling lovers, and for festival goers everywhere, this is one for your tea-break.
