Interested in extreme sports, music and looking for an excuse to get away on a Cornish holiday this year? The Relentless Boardmasters Festival could be for you! Europe’s largest extreme sports and music festival will be looking to improve on an excellent 2008 where Groove Armada, Chris Moyles and The Pigeon Detectives headlined in the gorgeous Cornwall backdrop.

The music festival kicks off on the 7th of August with popular garage/pop act The Streets set to headline, with over 12,000 people expected! Unfortunately at the moment we don’t know who else will be playing (although approximately 60 bands are expected) I’m sure closer to the time you will be able to find out more at http://www.relentlessboardmasters.com

More interested in the skating side of the festival? The 6th of August see’s the kick off for this part of the festival. Based at the Fiscal Beach the Vert ramp and Street skating competitions will provide great excitement and enjoyment for both skaters and viewers. Some of Britain’s finest skaters take part in these competitions so be sure to check it out!

Looking for something a bit more chilled? The beach bar has helped a large variety of musical acts in allsorts of genres to explode into their respective scenes. Acts like Seth Lakeman, Seasick Steve, Newton Faulkner, Pigeon Detectives, Enter Shikari and many more have played here and gone on to massive careers. The marquee is an ideal place to check out the next great band and with a capacity of approximately 1,000 expect a fairly intimate set.
