The Waterboys to headline Chagstock Festival
4:00pm Tuesday 11th February 2014 in News
CHAGSTOCK Festival has announced that million-selling alt-rock legends, The Waterboys, will headline their main stage on Saturday night.
Formed 30 years ago by Mike Scott, The Waterboys became famous for their powerful live performances and majestic albums such as A Pagan Place and This Is The Sea, which included their biggest hit The Whole Of The Moon.
After the recruitment of Irish fiddle maestro Steve Wickham, the band created their million-selling Fisherman's Blues album, on which Scott's original and unusual song writing was merged with older musics - country, trad, blues and gospel - to electrifying effect.
Since then The Waterboys have continued to make genre-busting records and have matured into one of the world's finest live acts. Chagstock is one of the West country's best-loved festivals.
Set in 70 acres of farmland on the edge of Dartmoor, Chagstock is renowned for its stunning location, diverse line-up of artists and non-corporate, family friendly atmosphere.
Chagstock showcases the very best music, food and entertainment that the Westcountry and the UK have to offer.
