Boardmasters, the festival on the beach, have this announced this year’s line up for their 40th year’s festival. After the last minute cancellation due to bad weather last year, this line up looks set to be massive.
Skepta is headlining the Friday, with Kings of Leon on the Saturday before the 1975 play on the last day.
Also playing is The Kooks, Mura Masa, DJ Ez, Dizzee Rascal, Sam Fender, Camelphat, Loyle Carnee, Damian “JR Gong” Marley and Andy C.
Other acts to look out for include Sadie Horler, Example, Bad Sounds, Mabel, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, Trevor Hall and The Big Moon.
But its not just music at Boardmasters. Surfing, wellbeing and yoga sessions, food and drink, shopping and adventure can all be expected throughout the weekend. This is also the perfect festival for kids, with a dedicated family field, specific family camping, circus skills, arts and crafts and outdoor play are all on offer for the little ones.
Boardmasters is, once again, supporting Surfers Against Sewage, with their efforts to clean up the beaches and oceans. The festival is also committed to sustainability, by pledging to eradicate all but essential single use plastic this year. There is a reusable cup scheme is operation, water bottle refilling stations, beach cleans and charity collections.
With this year’s lineup set to be huge, Boardmasters 2020 looks set to make up after last year’s sad news, and will hopefully be bigger and better than ever.
