Water's Edge Festival has announced new dates for 2022, as well headline act Dodgy who are due to play the festival on 28 May at Chetwynd Deer Park.

Organiser Darren Wood commented “Our first festival was superb, we sold out in advance and the people of Newport showed support at the event in their numbers, the sun shone, the music, food and drink were superb and we even had the Red Arrows Fly Past.”

Next year, headline act, 90s Britpop band Dodgy, have been secured to close the show. Dodgy are an English powerpop rock trio that rose to prominence during the Britpop era of the 1990s, best known for their hits Staying Out For The Summer, If You’re Thinking Of Me and Good Enough.

Darren continued: “We were very pleased with all the bands that supported our first festival last year, and we have some stunning bands and musicians once again. We are over the moon to announce that we have secured  Dodgy to headline the event, I listened to them in my teens and I am sure that many more people of Newport will be keen to come and experience them up close and personal at our intimate event, this is a band that graces large stages throughout the UK and beyond.”

The first Water's Edge Festival in 2022 will be taking place in the picturesque Chetwynd Deer Park on Saturday 28 May with the second taking place on 10 September at the same venue.

“We are lucky to have made some great contacts with wonderful musicians over the years and are also pleased to announce that we have two acts that play Glastonbury most years joining us in May, Texas Born Rodney Branigan and London Based Cable Street Collective will be bringing more talent the day alongside Wales based Big Joe Bone and local bands, The Endings & the Wayne Martin Band."
