WATCHET Live Festival has announced two of its main stage headliners for 2020 today.

The Grammy-nominated pop music stars Sister Sledge will be headlining the Friday night, while one of the UK's best-loved indie bands Shed Seven will take to the stage on the Sunday night.

Sister Sledge rose to fame in the 1970's with their timeless classic We Are Family, and went on to have major hits with Lost In Music, He's The Greatest Dancer, Got To Love Somebody, Thinking Of You and Frankie.

Shed Seven meanwhile will be able to delve into an impressive back catalogue including 15 UK Top 40 singles.

Formed in York in 1991, Shed Seven struck it big with their second single Dolphin, and their debut album Change Giver saw the band awarded their first gold disc.

Other hits by the band include Chasing Rainbows, Going For Gold, Speakeasy and Burn This Disco Down.

A number of other acts have also been announced for the August Bank Holiday weekend festival including Paul Young-fronted Tex-Mex band Los Pacaminos, Rupert Stroud, Future Dub Orchestra, The Simmertones plus the heavily-requested return from The Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican.

They will join the previously announced R&B songstress Gabrielle, Ian Dury's former band The Blockheads and female folk duo Sound Of The Sirens.

Watchet Festival is a not-for-profit family festival with three live stages which host more than 60 live acts.

The organisers say the 2020 festival is on course to sell out completely in advance.

Watchet LIVE Festival will once again support a wider variety of local charities, including Elliot’s Touch, The Freddie Pring Memorial Fund and Stand Against Speed 4 Bethany.

Watchet Live CIC, the charity behind Watchet Live Festival, are proud recipients of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service; the highest award that can be given a volunteer group in the UK.
