Boardmasters announces over 40 more acts for this year’s festival with their 40th year set to be their biggest yet. World-class acts including BLOSSOMS, HOT CHIP, MARIBOU STATE, KOJEY RADICAL and EASY LIFE will be heading to the Cornish coast where they will join headliners KINGS OF LEON, SKEPTA and THE 1975, and many more for five unmissable days of surf and music from Wednesday 5 – Sunday 9 August 2020.
BLOSSOMS will be hitting the Boardmasters Main Stage on Friday 7 August. Flying the flag for Stockport, the five-piece are riding high after starting the year off scoring a no.1 album with the widely acclaimed ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’. With a catalogue of joyous hits in their arsenal including ‘Charlemagne’, ‘Your Girlfriend’ and ‘There A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)’, fans can expect an unashamedly fun and euphoric set as Blossoms’ summery mix of pop, indie and funk makes waves across Watergate Bay.
HOT CHIP headline The Point on Saturday 8 August with a very special DJ set on Sunday 9 August. A great British pop sensation, HOT CHIP are an unstoppable force who have been delighting fans and dominating dancefloors with their catchy synth-pop for two decades. This summer, fans will be treated to a shimmering, no-holds-barred set sure to keep everyone dancing way beyond sunset.
Also heading to The Point are MARIBOU STATE who will take to the decks on Saturday 8 August, to deliver a huge DJ set. Following a year taking the UK, Europe and North America by storm with their latest tour, the duo are heading to Boardmasters with their feel-good fusion of electronica and instrumentation. There will be summer sounds and sunset beats in droves, as MARIBOU STATE bring a heady mix of funk, soul and energy to Watergate Bay.
Over at the Land Of Saints, British poet and artist KOJEY RADICAL is not to be missed. The London rapper is widely recognised as one of this generation’s most talented storytellers, with his latest EP ‘Cashmere Tears’ skillfully weaving a beautifully emotive take on modern life. A true wordsmith with social and cultural relevance to his lyrics, there’s good reason why KOJEY RADICALis at the very forefront of the UK rap scene. Catch him at Boardmasters on Friday 7 August 2020.
Hot on the heels of their NME Awards win for ‘Best New British Act’ this month, the unstoppable EASY LIFE are coming to the Main Stage at Boardmasters this August on Friday 7 August. The Leicester lads blend a smorgasbord of musical styles, with melodic pop, jazz, hip-hop, electronica and much more creating their unique sound which defies genres and doesn’t play by the rules. It’s been a whirlwind year for the five-piece with festival slots, plus an appearance on Later With Jools Holland. With a hotly-anticipated debut album in the works and hits including ‘Nightmares’ and ‘Earth’, their Boardmasters performance will undoubtedbly be a spectacle.
