Boardmasters, Cornwall. 6th – 10th August.
Boardmasters has been running in Cornwall since 1981 where it began as a huge worldwide surf competition. The locals revelled in the fact that they could see their heroes like Kelly Slater compete.
Now in 2014, Boardmasters is the festival you go to for a full weekend of beach-side living. The August timing of it almost certainly guarantees some sun, even in the UK. So pack your bikinis, sandals, sunnies and sun cream and get ready for an action packed extreme weekend.
This is an epic weekend full of everything you love. Set on Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay you can not only catch some of your favourite bands and party yourself into a mess but you can also to try your hand at a bit of Cornwall surfing, watch pro surf competitions, BMX and Skate competitions and get into the beach parties happening all along the awesome Cornish coastline.
So, you’re living the Home and Away of the 90’s dream. Friends, hang time, beach and boards. Who needs a holiday abroad this year when we’ve got Boardmasters?!
The Boardmasters line up includes Chase & Status, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Bastille, Reel Big Fish, Duke Dumont, Fink and loads more.
The Watergate Bay music arena, with arguably the World’s best view from a festival site, houses 8 genre spanning stages, bars, endless food stops, festi-stalls and rides and it’s less than 5 minutes walk to the campsite and Watergate’s golden beach!
Fistral Beach is for surfing, skate, BMX, evening gigs, the surf village and surf art installations. We can just imagine this being the place where the party really is going to happen. Prepare to fall in love with a stranger here.
With Boardmasters you can live the dream for a long weekend. Enter with style leave with a smile.
