THE Lightening Seeds have been announced as headliners for the first night of July’s Chagstock Festival.

The 1990s chart toppers are the second big names to be revealed for the annual event at Whiddon Down, with alt-rock legends The Waterboys set to top the bill on the Saturday night.

Chagstock takes place on Friday and Saturday, July 18-19 and the other acts confirmed so far include The Selecter, The Stanfields, Sheelanagig, Sam Green and The Midnight Heist and Okehampton rockers, Downfall plus Chagstock’s house band, New Crisis.

Lightning Seeds are a Liverpudlian band fronted and formed by Ian Broudie. They’ve had 12 top 20 UK hits including Pure, Change, Sugar Coated Iceberg, You Showed Me and 1996 football anthem Three Lions. Ian Broudie and the Lightning Seeds have released seven studio albums to date – six as Lightning Seeds and one Ian Broudie solo album.

Last year’s festival sold out for the second year running, and featured memorable performances from The Boomtown Rats, Billy Bragg and The Mystery Jets amongst many others.

Chagstock is one of the Westcountry’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.

Introduced in 2012 in recognition of the tough economic climate for families, all children under 12 can attend the festival for free (ticket is required). Chagstock’s capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained.
