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.
Established in 1981, Boardmasters is a 5-day event situated across two stunning locations in Cornwall - the surfing mecca of the UK, Fistral Beach where Boardmasters famous International Surf Competitions take place and arguably the most stunning location in the country to watch live music, Watergate Bay. Last year saw Boardmasters welcome over 150,000 festivalgoers across its two sites over the 5 days of the festival. Boardmasters operates a tiered ticket system with price bands for tickets changing over time. The sooner you buy, the cheaper it is! Book tickets via the website.
