As summer is finally with us, Boardmasters has announced some more big names plus the line-up for The View and The Netloft live music areas.

These new acts will join Boardmasters’ headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Jamiroquai, and Alt-J for five days of sun, surf and world-class music across two simply stunning sites – Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach.

Tickets are on sale NOW via the website.

‘Dream Catch Me’ hitmaker Newton Faulkner is no stranger to Boardmasters, having dazzled crowds with his spellbinding folky sets in 2007 and 2010, as well as playing the Beach Session in 2011 and turning up for some special backstage sets…

Making his grand return and gracing the Main Stage, Newton will no doubt delight his South-West fans with classics including ‘Gone In The Morning’, ‘Teardrop’ and many more.

The Oxford-born singer songwriter, Frances, will also be taking to the Main Stage after releasing her debut studio album ‘Things I’ve Never Said’ earlier this year.

Also on the bill are the incredible, vibrant, afrobeat electro-funk eight-piece band Ibibio Sound Machine, fronted by singer Eno Williams.

The Land of Saints stage, famous for bringing the indie rock vibe to Watergate Bay, today adds the likes of Lower Than Atlantis, Lucy Rose, Fickle Friends, Formation, and Honeyblood to its headbanging summer line-up. Today also sees acts added to the Unleashed tent where the party really gets going with the biggest, most banging tunes, from some stellar names, including Star One, now lined up for Boardmasters’ ultimate party big top.

And the spiritual home of dance and electro – The Point – has a line-up sure to get everyone raving into the early hours. Flashmob and Carly Foxx are amongst the acts to join the thumping bill.

The View is also back, and what a view it is, with Marcus McCoan, Mullally, Haunt The Woods, Winters Hill, John Buckley, Catherine McGrath, Isaac Gracie, Sonny, Patrick James, River Matthews, Lily Rendle, Maisy Start Walter, Boo Seeka, Joe Fox, Wildwood Kin, Matt Maltese, A K Patterson and Tommy Ashby completing the stage’s bill of the freshest future stars.

The Netloft made its welcomed Boardmasters debut last year and 2017’s carefully curated line-up is also made up of under the radar and ready to be discovered artists. Check them out here first.

She Drew The Gun, Saint PHNX, Charlotte Carpenter, Chris Haddon, White Room, Charlie Bowdery, Lives, Ider, Alice Jemima, Get Inuit, Wild Front, Her’s, Secret Tongues, Suzie Mac, Rue, Banfi, Meadowlark, Childcare, Dextric, William The Conquerer, Indian Queens and Mog Jones make up the line-up for this intimate stage.

Boardmasters’ first-ever on-site restaurant, The Wild Oyster, has also been announced, hosted by chef Lee Skeet.

Lee, one of the most exciting chefs in the South-West has worked at some of the world’s most esteemed restaurants. He’s since returned to his native Cornwall and The Wild Oyster will be serving up breakfast as well as a five-course taster menu using the freshest, locally-sourced Cornish produce. The restaurant, which boasts breath-taking views from the Watergate Bay cliff top, is a must for festival foodies.

Booking is essential via the Boardmasters website.

Boardmasters have also revealed details for this year’s Glamping options at the all-new Cloud Nine Boutique Campsite.

Adding a touch of luxury to the Boardmasters experience with this glamorous accommodation on site.

Boardmasters is offering a variety of Glamping options to suit the requirements of different group sizes. There are Pre-Erected Tent Packages, Bell Tents, Beach Huts, Tipis, Yurts for up to six people, Shire Huts and two-person Stargazing Domes in a spacious campsite, topped off with posh loos.

Inspired by the freedom, adventure and creativity of surfing and music, Boardmasters was born in 1981. Expect parties that run late into the night and a beautiful beach to recuperate on during the day. The 5-day event is situated across two stunning locations in Cornwall – the surfing mecca of the UK, Fistral Beach, where world class International Surf Competitions take place, and arguably the most stunning location in the country to watch live music, Watergate Bay. Last year the grassroots surf and music festival welcomed over 150,000 festival-goers to sunny Cornwall.
