Boardmasters Festival 2014 dates announced – 6th to 10th August
Boardmasters shortlisted in UK Festival Awards 2013!
The quintessential event of the Cornish calendar has gained recognition at a national level and critical acclaim from a competitive industry by being shortlisted for ‘Best Medium Sized Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, sharing the shortlist with comparative behemoths of the Festival scene Camp Bestival, Latitude and Secret Garden Party.
Boardmasters sold out this, it’s most successful year with 150,000 people descending upon Newquay across the 5 day festival.
With its strongest line up to date Ben Howard closed the main stage in spectacular style after first starting out on his incredible musical career on the View stage several years ago. Also in attendance were Indie Kings The Vaccines and the show stopping Basement Jaxx amongst an eclectic bill spread across 8 stage’s on the Cornish cliff tops.
Down at Fistral Beach, the UK Pro Surf competition had the largest crowds in the events history to watch local star, Ben Skinner, amongst a wealth of international talent, win the title for the Men’s longboard and Flowrider competition. The picturesque location also set the perfect back drop for the beach bar providing the setting for more live music, boutique stalls, art installation and thrilling action from the Boardmasters Skate and BMX competitions.
Set with a backdrop of Atlantic sunsets and stunning beaches, combining Cornwall’s surfing culture and ultimate music line up; Boardmasters is a festival like no other.
Event Director, Andrew Topham said “I’d like to say a huge thank you to the council, emergency services, local businesses and the residents of Newquay for working with us to help this event happen. With such great support it is brilliant news to see that Boardmasters has been recognised nationally.
Boardmasters heads into its 33rd year as it announces its 2014 dates and first release of tickets.
