August 9 - August 13
Boardmasters is an iconic festival that takes place in the vibrant seaside town of Newquay, Cornwall, every year in August. The festival, which began in 1981, is a five-day celebration of surfing, skateboarding, BMX, and live music. The festival takes place at two main locations: Fistral Beach, which hosts international surfing competitions, and Watergate Bay, where multiple stages showcase the best of live music from both established and up-and-coming artists. The 2023 Boardmasters festival is set to be a spectacular event, with an impressive lineup of artists who are sure to light up the crowds. Liam Gallagher, former frontman of the legendary rock band Oasis, will be headlining the festival, alongside Florence + The Machine, one of the biggest bands in the UK right now. The lineup also includes many other talented artists, such as Connie Constance, Gwenno, Little Simz, Kings of the Rollers, TSHA, Paul Woolford, and Four Tet, among many others. The festival has something for everyone, from surfing competitions and exhibitions, to wellness areas, silent discos, and even surf lessons. Additionally, the festival features a wide variety of food and drink options, including beach bars and barbecues. Boardmasters is also known for its after-show parties, which take place in clubs around Newquay’s town center. Although tickets for Boardmasters sell out quickly, even those who don’t manage to secure a ticket can enjoy the lively and festive atmosphere in Newquay during the festival. With its blend of adrenaline-fueled sports and world-class music acts, Boardmasters is a truly unique festival that has become an essential part of the summer experience in Cornwall.
