The Kaje talks Kendal Calling to People Get Real

Peter Wilson and Simon Lister are the duo the make up People Get Real. Combining both their DJing and Production skills together has meant that they create out of the ordinary mixes, with sets varying tempo and style setting them out from the rest of the crowd. Since 2002 the duo have been hitting dancefloors all around the country, exciting crowds with their unique blend and there’s a definate possibility of house, techno and even pop music hitting this years Kendal Calling in August as People Get Real perform in the lake district, and we managed to sneak a quick chat with them to find out more…

What does the Lake District mean to you?

Lakes, mountains, hills, picturesque villages, rain and the pencil museum too…..

What’s the best thing about the English countryside?

All the sheep

Kendal Calling celebrates its fifth birthday this year – what’s the best birthday present you’ve given/received?

Best present given – Felt street BMX

Best present received – Depeche Mode gig tickets

What makes small independent festivals so special?

The line-ups are often totally different to those you’d see at a larger festival…. often they can be just the same procession of Bands… you’ll always see something a bit different, or unexpected at a smaller festival

Where did you make your first festival appearance as an artist and how was it for you?

Evolution Festival in Newcastle was the first festival we played at, we’d always done the after-parties for it but last year we played the actual festival for the first time.

What’s your preferred way to commune with nature?

Television documentaries usually or walking the dog!

When are you at your most creative/inspired?

Usually when we can get some peace and look at getting down to some serious work…. we’re pretty disciplined in the studio so often most of our inspiration and creativity comes when we’re there.

What’s your best/worst festival memory?

Best festival memory would have to be seeing Liam Howlett DJing at Gatecrasher Summer Sound System it was just after the Dirtchamber Sessions mix was released…. he played an amazing set.  Also seeing Riccardo Villalobos and Ryan Elliott playing closing sets at Sonar Festival with the sun coming up was pretty special.

Not sure we have any particular bad memories….. the toilets can give anyone nightmares likewise cues/prices at any festival bar!

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt from festival life?

Always take more money than you think you’ll need and never ever wear your best trainers to any festival!

Apart from your set, how will you spend the rest of the festival weekend?

We’ll be checking out the line-ups on the various stages, also see what’s going on in the soapbox… that all looks interesting.

What’s the most fun you can have in a field?

Apart from the obvious?
