With just one month to go, CHAGSTOCK FESTIVAL are delighted to confirm the full main and second stage line up for 2014.
Lightning Seeds will headline the main stage on Friday night and million-selling alt-rock legends The Waterboys top the bill on Saturday.
Lightning Seeds are a Liverpudlian band fronted and formed by Ian Broudie. Theyve had 12 top 20 UK hits and released seven studio albums to date. With Chagstock taking place just five days after the World Cup Final, should the unthinkable happen and the England team go all the way, the rendition of their ubiquitous football anthem Three Lions will be something to remember for a very long time!

Since the band released their million-sellingFisherman's Blues album, on which Scott's original and unusual songwriting was blended with country, trad, blues and gospel to electrifying effect, The Waterboys have continued to make critically acclaimed, genre-busting records and have matured into one of the world's finest live acts.
