Boardmasters can also today reveal on which day each of the acts lined up are set to take to the stage and perform. On Friday it’ll be Catfish and the Bottlemen, followed drum n bass legends Chase & Status closing the show, Saturday will see Kaiser Chiefs get crowds rocking, and an electric set from Deamau5 and finally on Sunday, the incredible Primal Scream will take to the stage followed by James Bay who will bring Boardmasters 2016 to an epic close.

Boardmasters is located across two sites bursting with the best in music and sports action. Keep the party going at the Beach Sessions with live music on idyllic Fistral Beach, as well as the Beach Bar and BBQ bringing the food, drink and DJ sets. Head into Newquay to party into the early hours with Boardmasters After Parties, which take place at clubs around the town centre. Don’t miss the Pro Skate and BMX competitions to check out the best in extreme sports, the Surf Village, Cornish Market where you can taste the local delights, as well as Surf Art, photography and film sessions. If watching the surf action from the sidelines has tempted you to try it out yourself, ride the waves with a Surf Lesson from a local surf school. Unwind and relax at the Wellbeing Area or the On Site Eco Spa for some well deserved pamper time. There is also Luxury Camping and Glamping on offer to upgrade your experience even more.
