THE Wurzels are among the acts set to grace the stage at this year’s Watchet Live festival, as the first wave of artists is announced.

West Somerset’s largest outdoor music event is returning to Parsonage Farm for the sixth year in a row, on the bank holiday weekend between August 24 and 26.

The not-for-profit, family-friendly festival boasts coastal views and three stages, including the famous solar-powered Croissant Neuf from the Glastonbury Festival, which will host more than 50 live acts over the weekend.

Headliners Miles and Erica (The Wonderstuff) will perform their hits Dizzy and Size of a Cow, while flourishing West Country band Mad Dog McRea will appear off the back of winning best album at the South West Music Awards in November.

Almost 5,000 people flocked to last year’s festival and it is hoped this year’s will be just as popular. In addition to the live music, there will an open mic venue, the Something Else Tea Tent, a silent disco, music and arts workshops and a festival market.

This year’s festival charity is Children’s Hospice South West, which supports families whose children suffer with life-threatening illnesses.
