Watchet Music Festival 2019
Behind the Scenes
Chris Lock – Festival Site Build

Can we build it ? Yes We Can!

Chris has been volunteering with Watchet Music Festival for the last 7 years at Parsonage Farm. A carpenter by trade, Chris assists with any work that requires these skills plus assisting with the installation of the festival site tower lights, and setting up the main festival bar. Being part of the festival team Chris volunteers on site during the week leading up to the festival and over the weekend of the festival.

Q. What do you feel is important to you about Watchet Music festival ?
A. I enjoy being part of the festival team and meeting different people, the traders, festival goers and the carnival clubs who are involved with the build and who volunteer on the festival site. The festival has a great vibe and has a good family friendly environment.

Chris has a very diverse and eclectic taste in music , from Indie to Folk to Punk. Chris said “ Music is essential, and it is very important to find new artists to follow, some of the smaller artists play some of best live music I have seen. I enjoy the smaller venues which are up close and personal, you can get a real feel for the music being played.

Q. Who are you looking forward to seeing at the festival ?
A. Embrace, Lightening Seeds, and The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican, they are the second in house band.

Q. How do you feels the festival impacts on the community?
A. Watchet Music Festival brings people into the area. Its a very special thing for Mark and Jackie and the volunteers to create such a large event in a small costal town in the south west.

Quote : A festival that HAS to keep going.

We love this from Piston, who had the unenviable task of following The Neville Staple Band on the main stage this year. Check out their awesome cover of a Slade classic (no, not that one), with a video featuring loads of the bands they toured with this year!

IIIIIIIT'S CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAS!!!

Bargain. 👍

Yes please two adult tickets.

Absolutely shocking when your loyal customers who come year in, year out, spend more of their money early on, due to not knowing about this deal.. Really surprised by this. Will wait in future! Clearly no reward for loyalty.

Ouch. Well so much for loyal supporters buying early bird tickets! Out of order!

These tickets are loads cheaper than Early Birds I bought 😮 I paid £15.50 admin at ticket sellers. Why don't you do Bacs transfers ordinarily to cut out extortionate admin fees.

Hi can we have a family ticket and 1 under 12 please🏕🏕🎷🎸🎹

What about the teen weekend as I don't know if you can change the poster but was £48 and now £48

Hi normal Williams crew 7 tickets please send details to make payment.
