THE Fratellis and Level 42 will join Scouting for Girls and Belinda Carlisle on the line-up for Watchet Festival, the organisers have today confirmed. 

The festival will take place at Parsonage Farm beween Friday, August 26, and Sunday, August 28 in the West Somerset seaside town.

Scottish indie rock band The Fratellis - best known for their 2006 single 'Chelsea Dagger' - will headline the festival on the Saturday night.

Level 42, who formed on the Isle of Wright in 1979 and released their highest-charting single 'Lessons in Love' seven years later, will bring the festival to a close on the Sunday.

The news follows the initial line-up announcement, which confirmed that Belinda Carlisle and Scouting For Girls would co-headline on the Friday night. 

The line-up also includes Alabama 3, Sleeper, Dreadzone, Cut Capers, and Skinny Lister alongside 'house band' The Wurzels. 

Watchet Festival returned last year after a Covid-enforced hiatus - and around half of the festival's 2022 capacity has now been sold.

A spokesperson said: "Watchet Festival is a not-for-profit family festival with amazing views of the West Somerset coastline and beyond. 

"Three live stages host more than 100 live acts, bringing a wide range of high-calibre musical acts not normally found performing in West Somerset, at a very affordable price.

"Full adult weekend camping tickets are under £100, less than half the cost of many comparable festivals.

"Watchet 2022 is set to continue the festival’s tradition of completely selling out in advance."

Weekend tickets including camping are available from £95 for adults (16+) and £80 for youths (13-15). 

Family weekend tickets are also available for £335 including camping. 

Weekend tickets without camping are available for £82.50 for adults and £70 for youths, or £275 for a weekend family ticket. 

The festival is run on a voluntary basis by Watchet Live CIC, which has received the the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
