The Chemical Brothers and George Ezra for five unforgettable days in unrivalled surroundings on the stunning Cornish coastline. Cornwall’s own surf and music festival, boasts a truly unique combination of thrilling action from the biggest names on the global surf scene and music from the freshest acts, and takes place from Wednesday 8 – Sunday 12 August 2018 at Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach.

Today, co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets Miles Kane, Welsh rockers Feeder, Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, and Radio 1 DJ and underground tastemaker Monki have been added to the already stellar line-up. They will be joined by hotly-tipped London four-piece Stereo Honey, soulful songstress Lily Moore, Newquay Male Voice Choir, Cornish breakthrough band The Velvet Hands and industrial noise punks Black Futures. International band of artists Electric Pyramid, psychedelic rock‘n’rollers Saint Agnes, indie outfit RedFaces, alt-singer-songwriter Rosborough and bluesy folk punks LOCKS will also be performing at the biggest Boardmasters yet.

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. The 5-day event is situated across two stunning locations in Cornwall - the surfing mecca of the UK, Fistral Beach, where world class International Surf Competitions take place, and arguably the most stunning location in the country to watch live music, Watergate Bay. Last year the surf and music festival welcomed over 150,000 festival goers to sunny Cornwall. Book your tickets now!
