The UK's biggest surf and music festival

Boardmasters is the UK's biggest surf and music festival. The festival brings together 50,000 like-minded souls with a love of music, surfing, wellbeing and the outdoors for five days on the Cornish coast. The festival takes place across two stunning sites in Newquay.
Over 200 artists play across 12 stages up at Watergate Bay. From international headliners through to breaking acts, the bill is an eclectic mix of genres covering songwriters, indie, pop, grime, DnB, house, rock and more. There’s something for everyone. Previous headliners have included Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Chemical Brothers and George Ezra with 2020 line up announcements coming soon. 
As well as catching live sets, festivalgoers can take part in Cornish language sessions, see a comedy show or chill out in Zennor Haven. Born from a Cornish folklore, the festival's dedicated wellbeing area hosts daily yoga classes, workshops, reiki and even an eco spa. 
Down at Fistral Beach, international surfers compete in World Surf Leagues Boardmasters Opens and Boardmasters Longboard Pro, whilst Boardmasters purpose built beach bar hosts dj sets and parties each day. 
What's more, Boardmasters are long-term supporters of Surfers Against Sewage, and have won awards for their sustainability work, such as the daily beach cleans they run throughout the festival. For 2020, they'll be eradicating all non-essential single use plastic from the festival. 


The 2020 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.

The beaches of Newquay are known for being some of the best in England. Looking out across the English Channel, the sandy beaches will host the festival's main arena and campsite as well as skate parks, art installations and pop-up stages.
