Boardmasters blues will be a distant memory as dates for 2018 have been revealed today. Following this summer’s bigger-than-ever, sold-out Boardmasters, Cornwall’s own surf and music festival will return to Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay from 8 – 13 August 2018. Tickets go on sale at 8am this Thursday 28th September via the Boardmasters website.

This year, Boardmasters welcomed 50,000 festivalgoers to enjoy world-class music from headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Jamiroquai, Alt-J and many more atop the picture-perfect setting of Watergate Bay. While the UK’s surf mecca Fistral Beach drew surf lovers in droves, with a record number of attendees watching the exhilirating international surf competition take place over five days. The Financial Times said Boardmasters is “fast becoming one of the UK’s most enticing summer music festivals”, while NME described the festival as “a perfect weekend mix of sun, surf and music in Cornwall.” The Cornish Guardian commented that this year’s festival was “a resounding success” and the Western Morning News called it “one of Cornwall’s coolest events.”

On Thursday (28 September), Early Bird tickets will go on sale to the general public. Boardmasters ticket system is tiered, with price bands for tickets changing over time. Guarantee the best price for Boardmasters 2018 by booking tickets soon. For information regarding Boardmasters tickets and prices, please visit the website.

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.
