The perfect blend of sun, sea and sound! Inspired by the freedom, adventure and creativity of surfing and music, Boardmasters was born in 1981. Expect live music and parties that run late into the night and a beautiful beach on which to recuperate during the day. The 5-day event is situated across two stunning locations on the Cornish coast; the surfing mecca of the UK, Fistral Beach, where world class International Surf Competitions take place, and arguably the most stunning cliff-top location in the country to watch live music, Watergate Bay. You could chill on the cliff with a sea view, make trips to the beach between shifts, or take in a surf lesson or two – it’s up to you!
