Hit the Beach at Boardmasters Festival

Newquay, Cornwall

Surf culture meets music festival on the sunny shores of the Cornish coast in high summer.

If you’re looking for a place to hang ten, hang loose and feel the musical vibes this summer, look no further than Fistral Beach where the Boardmasters festival combines beachside relaxation with plenty of great music and professional surf and skateboard competitions.

Let the sound of waves take you away as laid back acts perform on eight stages amidst the setting of Newquay’s sandy beaches. Join a crowd of 40,000 to listen to the tunes and watch the high-flying pros throw their best tricks. 

Boardmasters festival takes place 9-13 August, and this year’s headliners include Two Door Cinema Club, The Flaming Lips, Jamiroquai, The Vaccines and Alt-J.
