Boardmaster’s Music and Performances

Boardmasters Festival returns to Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach for 2016.

With everything from internationally-known performers to beach activities on offer, the event is always a popular one. Better yet, there are nine separate areas to choose from, with each catering to a different musical taste.

Main Stage

Boardmasters’ Main Stage has played host to legends such as Snoop Dogg, and it’s where you’ll be able to take in the headline acts each night. Make sure you make an appearance during the day if you don’t want to miss out on other huge artists.

Unleashed Stage

Unleashed plays host to the biggest tracks of the summer. Club-land hits and major arena acts combine to create the biggest indoor rave in the South West. Previous acts have included Zane Lowe, 2ManyDJ’s, and DJ EZ.

Land of Saints

A bastion of rock that has been home to The Darkness in 2015 and will be featuring Wolf Alice in 2016’s headline Friday slot. Whatever kind of rock rocks your boat, the Land of Saints can be trusted to scratch that itch.

The View

New and upcoming artists gather momentum at The View. Don’t believe us? George Ezra, Ben Howard, and Newton Faulkner all made their starts here, so expect to find the best undiscovered talent that the UK has to offer.

The Point

The most innovative DJs and producers can be found at The Point. An open-air party stretches right through the night, with acts sourced from the hottest clubs all over planet.

The Keg & Pasty 

Pirates, smugglers, and miners have all made The Keg & Pasty their home away from home. A classic Cornish pub, it delivers a sunny beer garden for you to chill in, and remains the hub of banter. The Keg is at the centre of it all, offering stand-up comedy and local bands.

VIP Stage

A VIP ticket grants access to one of the finest views in Cornwall. You’ll drink with a vista of Watergate Bay before you, plus an overlook of The View stage.

The Net Loft

A new and more intimate stage area promises to showcase new Cornish talent and under-the-radar musicians.

The Beach Bar

From the surfer’s shack to the BBQ terrace, resident DJs and live bands enliven this island-inspired slice of Boardmasters. Grab an ice cold beer or a sizzling burger while you check out the surf competition, then enjoy Beach Sessions after dark.
