Newquay break run to the sun

The Run to the Sun festival is one of the biggest events in Cornwall’s summer calendar having grown year on year since the very first event in 1987. For 2009 organisers are planning their biggest festival yet with a-list performers and some great new features to appeal to Run for the Sun virgins and veterans alike.

One of this years headline acts is Pendulum who are set to DJ on the main stage on Friday night. The band really shot to fame with the mainstream audience last year after enjoying a top 10 single and album, a sold out headline tour and then supporting Linkin Park during one of their biggest and best gigs ever. Other a-list DJs include Judge Jules, Dave Pearce and Headkandi. Joining the DJs will be a number of live bands and top comedians.

2009s festival will see a new VW only camping area which reconnects the festival with its roots as a celebration of the VW van. Also new for 2009 is the Shakin Shake Bar complete with huge outside area which will be great for partying, there are also plans to do away with the current car park to create more room for fun events and traders.

If you want to head to the Run for the Sun but aren’t keen on camping you can always combine it with a great Newquay break. If you are planning on doing this though its always a good idea to book any Newquay hotel you are thinking of staying in nice and early as the Run for the Sun festival weekend is one of the busiest times of the year for Newquay.
