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), Someones Looking At You, Banana Republic and of course the ubiquitous multi-million selling I Dont Like Mondays, this is set to be the biggest Saturday night performance that Watchet Live Festival have ever hosted.
Sunday nights headliners are the magnificent Big Country. Formed in Dunfermline in the early 80s the band went on to have a string of hits and four Top 10 albums, including 1984s Steel Town, which went to Number 1.
Also headling the billing are 80s 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 Barrett, Merry Hell, Tankus The Henge and many many more and there are still 2 major main stage headliners yet to be announced!
