Boardmasters is an annual festival that combines some of the best music with Surf, BMX and Skate competitions in and around the town of Newquay in Cornwall. It usually takes place over three days in late August part of season. With a history that links to some of the Surfers Against Sewage events that have taken place over the last three decades, Boardmasters can trace its heritage back to 1981.
Expect raw, high energy sounds on the main stages of the Boardmasters festival, where the music is usually appropriate for the extreme sports crowd without coming over too much like the soundtrack for the latest console skateboarding game. This takes place at Watergate Bay, whilst you’ll catch most of the extreme sports going down around Fistral Beach.
The Boardmasters Festival completely takes over Newquay, where there’s tons of little clubs and pubs that provide a sanctuary for late night party heads who just don’t know when to leave it alone. This is a high energy event that gives attendees a dose of the spectacular alongside their sonic entertainment, set against the background of some of the most beautiful beach views you’ll catch anywhere in the UK.
