Foals will headline Boardmasters 2019 with another huge wave of acts announced


Boardmasters Festival has today announced that Foals will headline their 2019 spectacular of music, surf and good times. The announcement of the Sunday headliner comes atop another huge wave of acts. Surf’s up!

Taking place at Fistral Beach / Watergate Bay, Newquay, Cornwall from Wednesday 7 – Sunday 11 August 2019, this year’s event promises to be a big one.

Foals have recently announced that a new album is on the way with some secret songs and fan giveaways and now we know their major headlining slot of this year’s summer festival circuit will be Boardmasters.

The huge announcement means Foals will join Florence + The Machine as headliners of the festival with some other incredible acts being announced. Including our best album winner Idles, Slaves, Dizzee Rascal, Plan B, Franz Ferdinand, Mabel, Bugzy Malone, proving there really is something for everyone at this year’s event.

Boardmasters will also continue its tremendous work to keep the festival and the Cornish coastline, cleaner than ever before. Long-term supporters of Surfers Against Sewage for over 20 years the festival will once more collaboarate on a series of beach cleans throughout the year as well as during the festival. Other sustainability initiatives will continue, including the hugely successful re-useable cup scheme, the litter bond, Cornwall’s ‘Final Straw’ scheme and more to make Boardmasters as clean, environmentally-friendly and enjoyable as possible. This is all part of the mission to have eradicated all non-essential single use plastics from Boardmasters by 2020.

Boardmasters epic surf competition is back, as part of the World Surf League Qualifying Series. The biggest names on the international surf scene will battle it out on the waves at Fistral Beach. More details to be revealed later this year.
