Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Boardmasters Festival brings you the very best in music, surf and entertainment, all set to the backdrop of stunning Cornish coastline.

Boardmasters is situated across two iconic locations. The festival site sits on the cliff top at Watergate Bay, home to arguably the world’s best festival view. They play host to no less than twelve curated stages, with a collection of acts ranging from local acoustic talent, to mind-bending visual performers, to international headliners. You can also find some peace and quiet in the wellbeing area, relax in the eco spa, dine in The Wild Oyster restaurant and enjoy one of many fabulous food stalls. Whilst onsite, keep an eye out for the Boardmasters Green Team who will be on hand to offer tips on how to keep the stunning festival site green and clean.

In the town of Newquay, you will find the legendary surf mecca of Fistral Beach. Surfing, skating, BMX, live music, the Surf Village and much more can be found here at the home of UK surfing. The pro surf competitions have been at the heart of the festival for over two decades and Boardmasters are thrilled to host the international surf league events here.

Skepta

Skepta appearing at this event

North London MC, producer, DJ and runner of the 'Boy Better Know' grime label. As a rapper and MC, Skepta aims to make grime music for the masses! A veteran of the U.K. grime scene, MC, producer, and record-label owner Skepta was influential in the genre's shift from the underground to the pop charts, as well as its creative and commercial resurgence during the mid-2010s. Born Joseph Junior Adenuga to Nigerian parents, Skepta moved to Tottenham with his family at the age of three. Inspired by both US and UK hip-hop, he started his music career appearing on the pirate radio circuit and performing at various MC battles. In 2005, he formed the grime label Boy Better Know with brother J.M.E. and Wiley, and a year later joined East London collective Roll Deep, although he left the following year to concentrate on Boy Better Know and his solo career.
