Inspired by the freedom, adventure and creativity of surfing and music, Boardmasters was born in 1981. Expect parties that run late into the night and a beautiful beach to recuperate on during the day. Last year the surf and music festival welcomed over 150,000 festival goers to sunny Cornwall.

Andrew Topham, Boardmasters Festival Director, said of the festival earlier this year: “Following another sell-out year which saw the biggest Boardmasters ever this summer, we are excited to bring more of the most exciting names in music to Cornwall. Boardmasters’ unique fusion of the very best in international surfing and music helps to keep Cornwall firmly on the map as the festival sees unprecedented growth year on year. We can’t wait to welcome our incredible community for another summer of thrilling surf and music action across two stunning sites – Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay.”

NME described Boardmasters as “a perfect weekend mix of sun, surf and music in Cornwall” while The Financial Times said Boardmasters is “fast becoming one of the UK’s most enticing summer music festivals.
