BILLY Bragg has been confirmed as the first main stage act to be named for Chagstock Festival on July 20.
Bragg will bring his unique brand of political rock to the festival on the Saturday night, performing immediately before the headline act, which is still to be announced.
Chagstock is one of the westcountry's best-loved festivals.
Returning after the stunning sell-out success of last year's event, which featured memorable performances from KT Tunstall, Fun Lovin Criminals, Seth Lakeman and Alabama 3 among many others, Chagstock retains its traditional two-day format in 2013.
This year's fancy dress theme will be 'circus'.
