A surf and music festival on the Cornish coast 


Inspired by the freedom, adventure and creativity of surfing and music, Boardmasters was born in 1981 and has grown to become the biggest and best festival of its kind in Europe. Last year, 150,000 like-minded souls came to Cornwall for a five-day celebration of the surfing lifestyle. 

The festival spans two sites: Fistral Beach, which hosts our world class surf contest and Watergate Bay, arguably the most stunning location in the country to watch live music. This August, festivalgoers will be treated to headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Jamiroqui and Alt J as the sun sinks over the Atlantic. Expect parties running late into the night and a beautiful beach to recuperate on during the day… the perfect setting to enjoy a Soul Arch.
