Boardmasters 2021 – Preview

With less than a week to go until Boardmasters finally returns, we’re here to give you an overview of the ultimate surf & music festival on the Cornish coast.

Taking place between 11 – 15 August in Newquay, this year promises to be very special.

Headliners on the main stage include Foals, Gorillaz & the amazing Jorja Smith…but that’s not all. Oh no…Sam Fender, Loyle Carner, Jamie xx, Lianne La Havas, The Kooks, Blossoms, Mahalia Music, Slowthai, ANDY C, Eats Everything, and Django Django also join the incredible line up.

Is that simply not enough? There’s more – Basement Jaxx and Maribou State head to the Cornish coast with DJ sets, Georgia brings her one-woman drum machine and incredible vocals (hopefully covering Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill), The Futureheads (fingers crossed covering Hounds of Love by Ms Bush also), not to mention Young T & Bugsey, Arlo Parks & a whole host more…truly something for everyone.

No wonder tickets have sold out early…you may be lucky enough to find some on Twickets now if you’re lucky…

Hey, if the music isn’t enough, why not take a short trip to the coast during the day. Fistral Beach transforms into a vibrant surf festival complete with pro surf competitions, skate and BMX competitions, art installations, workshops, gigs and a bustling surf village.

See you at the beach…
