No comp or bands this year. Gutted.

Boardmasters have been forced to cancel. We are really gutted for the whole crew as it was set to be the best ever lineup, and a huge come back after last year’s events. You just couldn’t have predicted two years like this. It is a massive loss for a lot of people.

Full release below-

“We are absolutely gutted to announce, that due to the on-going pandemic, Boardmasters can no longer take place this summer.

This is particularly heart-breaking given the events of 2019,  but the safety of everyone involved in the festival as well as the local community in Cornwall comes first.

If you’re a ticket holder, you’ll be able to transfer your booking over to Boardmasters 2021 or request a full refund. Boardmasters will take place in Newquay on 11-15 August 2021.

•             All tickets transferred to 2021, will be converted to Tier 1 2020 ticket prices and we’ll be refunding the difference. More info at

•             For those of you who missed out on 2019 and bought tickets in this year’s presale, we have a special surprise for you guys. Look out for an email from us.

If you’re able to, it would mean a lot to us if you held onto your ticket for next year. We’d love to see you there. However, we completely understand if you need or would prefer a refund.

If you are opting to keep hold of your tickets until 2021 you do not need to do anything. Ticket holders will receive an email from us within 72 hours with full details of how to request a refund.
Thank you to all of our ticket holders, artists, suppliers, local community and everyone involved with Boardmasters for your continued support. It means the world to us.

We’ll be back stronger than ever next Summer!

Stay safe and look after each other.
