Full lineup announced for Chagstock 21 & 22 July 2017.

Chagstock Festival organisers have announced a slew of fabulous new acts to the bill for 2017, completing the line-ups for the Main and Marquee Stages.

New additions to the main stage include enduring R&B legends Dr Feelgood, Bristolian 8-piece Swing & Hiphop funkers Cut Capers, Cornwall based free-spirited multi instrumentalists Echo Town, modern Ska outfit Buster Shuffle, Gypsy swing outfit Immigrant Swing and Westcountry gypsy-punk act Biere De Luxe.

Over on the marquee stage Irish rockers Raglans, virtuoso guitarist John Fairhurst and Devon's own country pop starlet Clara Bond have all been added to the bill.

Chagstock 2017 is headlined by The Shires and Soul II Soul 

Hailing from the Home Counties, The Shires made music history by becoming the first UK country act to score a Top 10 album. The duo are at the forefront of the British country movement and the runaway success of recently released album 'My Universe' has made them not just the fastest selling UK country artist ever, but one of the biggest-selling breakthrough UK acts of any genre in recent years.

Soul II Soul need little introduction. Best known for timeless classics 'Back To Life' and breakthrough smash hit 'Keep On Movin', they've sold over 10 million albums, performed live in over 20 countries, and headlined some of the most famous venues in the world. They've been recognised throughout their 29-year career, winning 2 Grammies and being nominated for 5 Brits.
