Rats at Shag Fest in Devon

or so Geldof thought...

Saturday 20th July 2013.  Tickets available from http://www.chagstock.info/

Bob Geldof said: "The second I heard the name 'Shagstock' I knew that was THE festival for The Boomtown Rats.Only later when we agreed and signed contracts did Simon, the Rats drummer, point out it was in fact 'Chagstock', his local summer Music Fest. Oh well... I will do my best to personally attempt to do everything in my power to have the name revert to my far better original mistake.It’s a beautif ul part of the world. Billy Bragg is a hero. The Rats are a great band. It will be a pleasure to do the Rat in Devon again."
Simon Ford from Chagstock Festival added: "We are delighted to announce The Boomtown Rats will exclusively headline our main stage at Chagstock. They are a classic band with a string of memorable hits. Combined with Billy Bragg’s performance immediately before the Boomtown Rats, Chagstock 2013 is shaping up to be our best line up ever - and we still have a number of major artists to announce! We can’t wait!”
Chagstock’s capacity is once again capped at just 5,000 tickets to ensure that its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere is maintained.
