Located right at the forefront of the Cornish coastline, Boardmasters is the highly anticipated festival of the year. Taking place over four days in August from 7th to 11th, there’s a combination of live music, surfing and skateboarding competitions in and around the town of Newquay: plenty of entertainment for you to get involved with.

Make the most of your summer by joining in the unforgettable week of live music at Watergate Bay, try your hand at surfing, watch the pros show us how it’s done in competitions held at Fistral Beach, and enjoy live skating competitions with a custom built ramp out the front of The Headland. If you’re looking for some downtime too, there’s miles of Cornish coastline to explore in between all the festival fun.

This year, Foals are back, making their hugely anticipated return after a four-year hiatus. Following the recent release of their massive single ‘Exits’, festivalgoers will be treated to an electrifying headline set to close Boardmasters 2019. Take a look at the full line-up which is sure to make for yet another incredible year.

Whilst accommodation is extremely limited at The Headland during Boardmasters, call our friendly reservations team on 01637 872211 for any accommodation enquiries and they’ll be happy to help see what’s available.
