What’s on at Watergate Bay

Trebelsue Farm, Watergate Bay. Farmer Pete serves us up a prime spot of his Cornish land for the Boardmasters week (cheers Pete!)! Join us by the crashing waves and show stopping sunsets in our surf and music haven...

Watergate Bay - with some suprises still to come!

Host to the Main Arena and campsites, Watergate Bay is where the party really gets gnarly; three full days of live music, surf trips, rides, food stalls, bars and barrel-loads more!

Schedule: Visit the Watergate Bay Event Info page for opening times.

Join us by the cliffs of Watergate Bay to enjoy...

Live Music at Watergate Bay

From the Mainstage to the intimate PA setup at The View, our three day line up at Watergate Bay is guaranteed to make Summer 2014 the best in living memory...

Mainstage  Unleashed  Mavericks  The Point  The View  Keg & Pasty

You can check out our most up to date billing on the Line Up page or visit the ticket purchase page to secure your entry to the Boardmasters 2014 Main Arena!

Main Stage (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) – Home to the headline acts - CHASE AND STATUS, SNOOP DOG AND BASTILLE and smack bang in the middle of the Main Arena. No matter where you're chilling at Watergate Bay, when the Main Stage revs up you’ll sense it. Check out line up.

Unleashed (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) – Bass warriors listen up! The Unleashed stage is the place to go to lose yourself with some heavy beats and generally terrible dancing, just the way we like it after dark. 2013 acts included Simian Mobile Disco, Fenech Soler and B Traits.

The second biggest stage at Boardmasters. Calling all bass warriors...

The View (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) – It just wouldn't be Boardmasters without The View. Lean back on a hay bail and get a load of the acoustic sounds against the sweetest backdrop Britain has to offer; wide open water and rushing waves. It's about as close as you can get to the cliffside, so if you get lucky you could even add dolphin spotting to your Boardmasters experience. Josh Kumra and Cosmo Jarvis did their thing at The View last year.

The View stage at Watergate Bay is a beauty!

Mavericks (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) – Just like its namesake wave, things can get pretty heavy at Mavericks! It's the place be if you're up for a hefty serving of indie and alt rock bands; We Are The Ocean, Dinosaur Pile Up and Mallory Knox played here last year.

The Point (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) – The Point returns with chilled beats during the day, kicking up a few gears by night (The Point 2013 line up included Dusky, Bondax, MJ Cole and more). With such sweet billing and a view over Watergate Bay, it’s not a stretch to get why The Point is one of the most popular places throughout Boardmasters.

Nothing says summer like a cliff top party

Keg & Pasty (Watergate Bay, 8th - 10th August) Est'd early 1300s, The Keg & Pasty is a classic Cornish pub that's seen all sorts at Watergate Bay. Prop up the bar or pull up a barrel in the same beer garden that pirates, smugglers, miners and surfers have made their second home for hundreds of years. “The Keg”, right in the centre of the main arena, is a hub of classic pub banter and entertainment including stand-up comedy. And she's bleddy 'ansome.
