UPDATE: Watchet festival is now SOLD OUT.

The Lightning Seeds, Embrace, Sophie Ellis-Bextor (pictured), Peter Hook & The LightAlabama 3 and Hot Chocolate are all on the lineup.

Watchet announce a new partnership with Weston College’s Music Faculty, who will be showcasing current and past students in the Something Else Tea Tent on Sunday. Elodie Fowler is a 20 year old Degree student whose distinctive Nashville-quality vocal is garnering her a reputation as a true “One to Watch” artist, and The KeyStoneZ are an exciting four-piece Ska/Reggae/Punk band who are fast becoming regulars on the West country music scene.

Friday night’s headliners are iconic Liverpudlian band…The Lightning Seeds. 

Now led by Errol Brown doppelganger Kennie Simon, Hot Chocolate features original members Pat Olive, Harvey Hinsley and Tony Connor, who are still performing to audiences all over the world.

Watchet also welcomes back Former Joy Division and New Order bassist, Peter Hook (along with his band, The Light), after a triumphant performance at the festival’s 10th Birthday ‘party’ in 2016. Also returning are much loved modern Cornish folk troubadours 3 Daft Monkeys, as will be – of course – Watchet Festival’s very own ‘house band’, The Wurzels.
