New Acts announced for Newquays Boardmasters Festival

Newquays Boardmasters Festival announces acts for the Corona Sunsets Stage.


The surf, skate & music festival situated on the beautiful Cornish coastline, is looking bigger than ever this year with headline acts from across the globe.  Two Door Cinema Club, Jamiroquai, ALT-J,  Slaves, Jake Bugg, Andy C, Patrick Topping, Frank Turner, The Flaming Lips and The Vaccines are just some of the big names playing the festival from Wednesday 9 to Sunday 13 August.

Now we can also announce the acts for the Corona Sunsets Stage, which promises beats, vibes, fresh limes and good times with its huge line-up set to bring the very best in summer sounds to the picture-perfect Watergate Bay. Legendary British DJ Norman Jay MBE will take to the stage on Friday, with an eclectic set sure to get everyone into the Boardmasters groove as the weekend gets underway.  He’s joined by Tayo set to entertain, with an extra special Prince tribute comprising a mixture bootlegs, B-sides and purple power anthems in memory of the musical legend. Other acts prepped and primed for the Corona Sunsets Stage are Aeroplane, party-starting DJ, remixer du jour and a pioneer of the nu-disco and Balearica scene, Doorly who comes fresh from his tour of the US, Cornwall’s own future-soul artist Matt Woods who’s ready to get everyone on their feet, and many more. During the day, festivalgoers will be able to head to the Corona Sunsets Stage for the ultimate chill-out area decked out with hammocks and of course, ice cold Corona. Later, as the sun sets on the Cornish coast the stage lights up, the beat drops and Corona provides an unrivalled, unforgettable summer party.
