Boardmasters Festival 2013 First Wave Of Artists

Boardmasters Festival returns to Cornwall from 7-11th August 2013. Boardmasters continues to evolve and 2013 sees the introduction of a third night of the music festival at Watergate Bay.

Boardmasters is proud to reveal its first wave of acts including headliners Ben Howard, Basement Jaxx and The Vaccines.

Not much need be said about Boardmasters favourite Ben Howard. The Boardmasters veteran is a Mercury nominee and firm favourite to walk away with two Brits at next month's awards. The surfing, singer songwriter has been a part of the Boardmasters family for years and we couldn't be happier to have him back in this historic year. 2012 was the year he became an international name making his return that little bit sweeter.

Basement Jaxx have headlined every major festival in the World including an unforgettable Glastonbury performance and now they headline Boardmasters. Their live show is a must see, banging out some of the biggest tracks in dance history. 'Where's Your Head At', 'Good Luck' and 'Rendez-Vu' are classics but only scratch the surface. Massive act, must see.

'The Vaccines Come Of Age' is the name of The Vaccines second album and is a good description of the band today. They most certainly have come of age since their inception in 2010 and Boardmasters can't wait to welcome them to Cornwall. It's been a meteoric rise for the 4 piece since posting their track 'If You Wanna" on YouTube in 2010. Their first album went to number 4 with their previously mentioned 'Come Of Age" going straight to number 1. We can't wait for Summer.

Elsewhere in the ever expanding Boardmasters line up are two Manchester bands Everything Everything and Delphic. Both are new to the event and both are critically acclaimed having been nominated as BBC's Sounds of the Year. Next up is a bona fide legend who was the first hip hop act to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Grandmaster Flash will perform in what is probably his first trip to Cornwall.

Other acts across the festival include A strong start in what is a tiny part of Boardmasters biggest year to date!
Boardmasters is a surf, skate and music festival that attracts over 90,000 unique fans to celebrate the UK's longest running surf event at Fistral Beach and the music festival at Watergate Bay. In recent years the Boardmasters has truly become 'Cornwall's Festival'.
