The Watchet Live Festival is back for the 10th year, with more than 100 performers lined up for a bank holiday weekend.

Former Glastonbury Festival headliners Levellers will close the festival, drawing from an extensive back catalogue of 20 chart hits, including What A Beautiful Day and One Way.

The group features the original line-up, which came together in 1988 and has never split up.

Brit Award-winners The Feeling boast a number of recognisable pop hits, including Never Be Lonely and Fill My Little World, and will share top billing.


Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook will perform with his band The Light.

And as it is the festival’s 10th year, the organisers have invited acts who provided some memorable moments over the decade.

These include Geno Washington from 1970s soul stars The Real Thing, former Specials frontman Neville Staple’s new band, as well as 3 Daft Monkeys.

The festival is not-for-profit, and family-friendly, with three stages and views across the West Somerset Coastline.


The Watchet Live Festival is on August 26-28 in fields off Brendon Road in Watchet.

Tickets, priced £20 for a youth’s day ticket without camping to £155 for a family weekend ticket without camping, are available from

The Mercury has teamed up with Watchet Live Festival to offer a family weekend ticket worth £155.
