BIG names are coming to West Somerset this summer for a music festival's glorious eighth year.
Watchet Live Festival 2014, the not-for-profit music celebration, has announced its initial line-up for Friday to Sunday, August 22-24.
On the FRIDAY, Buster Bloodvessel will front-up English ska band Bad Manners; there'll be performances from Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band, Eric Faulkner's Bay City Rollers, and Fortunes, formerly 'Joywride', who have supported Jessie J and Olly Murs.
English 'Dancing in the Moonlight' hit-makers Toploader will headline on the SATURDAY.
On SUNDAY, there'll be a scrumpy-and-Western set from houseband The Wurzels, plus Company B and Land of the Giants.
Dynamic Bhangra performers RSVP, comedy act the Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican, and Taunton's-own young guitar-picking gem, Darren Hodge, are all set to make a return this summer.
Three more headliners are set to be announced - watch this space.
