Melanie C will headline Watchet Festival in August.


Big names of the music world will appear at Watchet Live Festival which is returning to Somerset this summer.

Headliners include former Spice Girl Melanie C, indie favourites Cast, 1980s pop icon Hazel O’Connor and electronic band The Dub Pistols.

Watchet Live is an independent family festival taking place at The Down field from August 24-26.

Three stages host more than 60 acts, and with more than 80 per cent of camping tickets now sold, the event is shaping up to be sold-out in advance of the August Bank Holiday.

Watchet Live Festival, which celebrated a sold-out 10th anniversary in 2016, donates its proceeds to charities including The Children’s Hospice South West.

Tickets cost £82.50 for over-16s, £65 for 13-15-year-olds and £225 for a family ticket.

They are available at or on 02074 50153.
