Last year's festival was cancelled because of severe gales.

"Boardmasters will continue its tremendous work to keep the festival and the Cornish coastline cleaner than ever before. 

"There will be beach cleans in partnership with Surfers Against Sewage throughout the year as well as during the festival. 

"The successful re-useable cup scheme will continue, along with a litter bond on all camping tickets to incentivise campers to pick up their litter and recycle, and much more in place to make Boardmasters as clean, environmentally-friendly and enjoyable as possible. 

"This is all part of the mission to have eradicated all non-essential single use plastics from Boardmasters by next Summer's festival."


Eden Sessions:

Meantime, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will be playing at the famous St Austell biomes in June: Read More.

It will be Noel's second appearance at the Eden Sessions, following a landmark show with Oasis in 2009. 

"Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds are a fantastic addition to our 2020 line-up. 

"We know our audience loves a rock 'n' roll band and it will be great to welcome Noel back to Eden after his show with Oasis, one that is still top of many people's lists of best Eden Sessions."
