The Boomtown Rats to headline Watchet Festival 2015

Fronted by the infamous Sir Bob Geldof, The Boomtown Rats have been storming festivals since the ‘classic’ line up of Bob Geldof, Simon Crowe, Garry Roberts and Pete Briquette re-formed in 2013. With a huge back catalogue of Top 10 hits including Rat Trap (the first UK No.1 by an Irish band), Someone’s Looking At YouBanana Republic and of course the ubiquitous multi-million selling I Don’t Like Mondays, this is set to be the biggest Saturday night performance that Watchet Live Festival have ever hosted.

Sunday night’s headliners are the magnificent Big Country. Formed in Dunfermline in the early 80’s the band went on to have a string of hits and four Top 10 albums, including 1984’s Steel Town, which went to Number 1.

Also headling the billing are 80’s New Wave legends The Blow Monkeys, the always-entertaining Dr & The Medics, double-necked guitar wizard John Otway along with long-term collaborator ‘Wild’ Willy BarrettMerry HellTankus The Henge and many many more – and there are still 2 major main stage headliners yet to be announced!
