How old do I have to be to go to Boardmasters?

All ages are welcome, but you must be aged 16 or over to attend without an adult.

Anyone aged 15 or under will need to be accompanied by an adult aged 21 or over. One adult can look after up to 2 under 15s.

If you look under 16 we will ask you for ID before you can gain entry to the festival. Valid forms of ID are a Drivers License (provisional is ok), Passport or any other form of ID that is certified in the PASS System

We get asked every year if college ID or photocopies are ok. They’re not. We can only accept original versions of the IDs listed above.

Do I need to purchase a ticket to watch the surfing competitions?

No. You do not need to purchase a ticket to watch any of the sporting events at Boardmasters. Our surf competition is held at Fistral Beach and does not require a ticket.

What are ticket tiers?

Our tickets are sold in pricing tiers. Once one tier sells out we move up to the next tier. So the earlier you book your tickets, the better the price you’ll pay.

Who are your official ticket agents?

Our official ticket agents are SEE Tickets and Big Green Coach.

Our official resale platform will be Tixel.

Please do not buy from unofficial sources as your ticket will not be valid.

Can I pay with a deposit or payment plan?

Yes, we offer deposit and payment plans.

Deposit – Secure your ticket with a £40 deposit + booking fee, and manually pay off the remaining ticket balance by Sunday 7th May 2023.

Payment plan – Pay £40 deposit + booking fee upfront to secure your ticket. Pay the remaining ticket balance in equal monthly instalments until Friday 28th April 2023. Easy!

Are you going on sale with Charger tickets?

We’ve decided not to go on sale with Charger tickets this year but you can book VIP.

Can I stay onsite if I buy a day ticket option with accommodation?

Unfortunately not. Buying one of our day ticket options with one of our accommodation add-ons will not grant you access to our campsites, or permit you to stay onsite with us.

If you would like to stay with us on site, you will need to purchase a full weekend camping ticket to sit alongside your accommodation add on.

Names on tickets

This year we’re asking ticket bookers to fill in the names for every ticket holder. This helps to reduce ticket fraud and helps to keep the festival secure.

Don’t panic, if you or a friend can no longer join us this year, then you will simply need to update the name associated with that ticket. We will be asking you to personalise the name on your tickets ahead of the festival early July so set your reminders!

Please contact SEE Tickets directly if you require a name change.

When do you send out etickets?

E-tickets will be sent out early July 2023.

Can I have a refund?

This depends on your circumstances and whether you’ve purchased refund protection. As standard our tickets don’t come with refund protection, this is a paid extra available when booking.

For more information on our ticket refund policy, please contact SEE Tickets directly.

If you have already purchased a ticket and are no longer able to attend, we recommend reselling your ticket using our official resale platform Tixel, to allow someone else to buy this off you. Visit Tixel to resell your unwanted ticket here.

Please do not buy or sell using unofficial ticket resale platforms, Boardmasters accepts no responsibility for problems arising from third-party transactions. Tickets for the festival are only available from accredited ticket outlets.

Do you offer local residents tickets?

Yes, we offer a pair of complimentary tickets per household to local residents who live within close proximity of the festival grounds.

Local resident ticket applications have now closed for our 2023 show.

We apologise to anyone who was unsuccessful this year, to find out more information about local residents tickets, please visit our community hub.
