10 things to look forward to at Boardmasters 2023

With less than 50 days to go *gasp* until we’re reunited for five blissful days of world-class music and surf action, here’s 10 bucket-list worthy things you can look forward to this August… Spoiler alert: it’s going to be the best weekend of your life 😉

Got a friend who missed out on a Camping + Weekend ticket? Final day tickets are on sale now. 




1. The BIGGEST names in music across ten stages…

Including headliners Lorde, Liam Gallagher & Florence + The Machine, plus Special Guest Ben Howard, Cypress Hill, Little Simz, Raye, Dermot Kennedy, Four Tet, Bru-C and hundreds more. Your summer soundtrack? Sorted! 

2. The Boardmasters Open bringing us the best of the UK and international surfers going head-to-head in the UK’s biggest surf competition

Plus, you can share the stoke and learn to surf with surf lessons fueled by FULFIL. We’re sure we’ll see you in the surf comps next year! 

3. The UK’s largest outdoor Silent Disco across two stages

Is there anything better than belting out the green channel of a headset, whilst your mate belts out the blue channel? Out of tune singing along is compulsory😉  

4. The sunrises and sunsets from Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach

We *may* be biased, but we think Boardmasters has the best festival views in the world.  

5. Dancing the night (and morning) away with Boardmasters Presents

We know you want to party long into the night after the headliners finish, so we’re treating you to five nights of spectacular parties across Newquay Town with the hottest DJs in the game. The first one to see sunrise wins! 

6. Kicking back and relaxing at the Boardies Cinema - brand new for 2023!

Enjoy a packed film schedule with your mates at the Malibu Campsite… popcorn please! 

7. Discovering a world of mindfulness at Zennor Haven

Take a moment and head to this hub of wholesomeness for mental health talks, sunrise yoga, spoken word music, sound baths and more…aaaaaand breathe! 


8. World famous surf destination Fistral Beach being on your doorstep

Make the most out of that beach lifestyle and leap into a world of adventure, including coasteering, bodyboarding, paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling. 


9. Stepping into our 17th century Boardmasters Pub, the Keg & Pasty

Raise a frothy ale and enjoy an array of stand-ups and musicians, against the breathtaking Watergate Bay clifftop view. 

10. The sweet summer vibes at Fatty’s Yard

Embrace that summer feeling and jam in a hammock with a cold cocktail in hand. 

And so much more across five days of surf, sea and music…
