The camping field offers working showers and cold running drinking water. The carpark will be totally separate from the camping area and there will not be any camping in the carpark field! Organisers offer a separate field for camper vans (no caravans or trailer tents) where tents can also be pitched next to these vehicles.


The real ale and cider bar will make a return alongside Thatcher's Cider and Cotliegh Brewery towards the festival. The on site bars are run by the festival and offer 'happy hours' whilst keeping the entrance price as sensible as possible. The festival is expected to also host the legendary Something Else Tea Tent, an Open Mic venue, a Silent Disco, a festival market, good caterers and more.

A shuttle bus from the main town to the festival site in the afternoon and evenings on each day is also likely to return.


Watchet was an Old Port which has now been converted into a modern marina. It is centrally located near to Exmoor National Park, the Quantocks and there are plenty of beaches. It is also possible to travel here by boat from Cardiff.


Following the success of last year’s sold out event (the festival’s third in a row), Watchet LIVE Festival has made financial donations to local groups including The Children’s Hospice South West, West Somerset Brass band, and the local “Stand Against Speed” young driver’s awareness campaign.

More information will be here when available.
