Boardmasters Festival 2017

Boardmasters Festival 2017

Watergate Bay & Fistral Beach, Cornwall
9th August 2017
Festival Information

Boardmasters is one of the biggest music festivals in the UK, first beginning in 1981. Based in Cornwall on Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay, the festival is part professional surfing and extreme sports competition and part music festival. Over the past decade the festival has rapidly grown from humble roots to become the biggest event in Cornwall every summer!

Although music is a large part of the festival - with artists such as Snoop Dogg and Ed Sheeran having played in the past - it's really all about the surfing at Boardmasters! Each and every year hundreds of surfers come to the world famous Fistral Beach to compete and put on a show for surfing fanatics. There's also plenty of other extreme sports participating in the festivities, including professional skateboarding and BMX.

It should also be mentioned that the location itself is one of the best in the UK too, as you get to enjoy two of the best beaches in Cornwall and sample plenty of restaurants, beach bars and enjoy sun, sea and surf for the entire weekend! You'd be mad to miss out on Boardmasters Festival 2017!
