FROM FRIDAY: Watchet Live Music Fest 2013
1:32pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in What's On
THE long wait is finally over, Watchet Live Music fans.
West Somerset’s largest independent live music event opens on Friday for a weekend of entertainment that has put the seaside town on the serious festival map.
The Hoosiers, best known for their chart-topper Worried About Ray, count among this year’s top festival acts.
Joining them across three live stages are Dreadzone, The Wurzels and The Specials’ Neville Staple, along with The Skints, Shawaddywaddy and 3 Daft Monkeys.
More than 50 acts are set to perform, including Shoot The Moon, Nameless Girl, Rusty Shackle, The Ohmz, Appalachia, Ginger and the Russian, Darktown Strutters and Remedy Sounds.
Tickets for the event, at £20 adult day, are now almost sold out, with a small number available for when the gates open on Friday at 11am.
Aside from all the music action, an open mic tent, The Something Else Tent, silent disco, Charleston, jive and street dance lessons, poetry performance and a festival market and food court will all be on site.
