Boardmasters Festival has announced that RUDIMENTAL will headline the Land of Saints Stage on Saturday 10 August, with a special guest DJ set, joining the bill alongside already announced acts including headliners WU-TANG CLAN, FLORENCE + THE MACHINE and FOALS plus THE WOMBATS, DIZZEE RASCAL, JORJA SMITH, PLAN B and many more. Boardmasters has also revealed details of the BBC Music Introducing stage at The Netloft and announced more emerging acts for this year’s festival.
Cornwall’s own surf and music festival takes place from Wednesday 7 – Sunday 11 August 2019 across two stunning sites, Fistral Beach for exhilarating international surf action and Watergate Bay for world-class live music and simply unbeatable views.
Fresh from summer hit ‘These Days’, and having received widespread critical acclaim for their latest album ‘Toast To Our Differences’, RUDIMENTAL make a triumphant return to Boardmasters, riding high on the wave of enormous chart success. The group, hailing from London, have collaborated with huge names including Stefflon Don, Major Lazer, Protoje and more, and are sure to deliver their most innovate, creative and high-octane performance, jam-packed full of their biggest hits including ‘Feel The Love’ and ‘Waiting All Night’ as they headline Boardmasters’ Land of Saints stage on Saturday night with a very special DJ set.
This year, a total of twenty-four acts will perform on the BBC Music Introducing Stage located at The Netloft, at Watergate Bay. Among these talented emerging acts, CHARLIE BOWDERY who is teetering on the edge of success will return to Boardmasters with his eclectic mix of R&B, Grime and electo pop – whilst in contrast rising fourpiece band HAUNT THE WOODS will take to the BBC Music Introducing stage with their alternative folk and rock material.
Other acts include BONETIRED, HYPOPHORA, HALF KUT, MILO GORE, MORIATY and EZMAY GRACE to name a few. With most of the acts hailing from or living in Cornwall and its surrounding areas, BBC Music Introducing is intent on supporting local acts, nurturing their talent through giving them a platform that allows them to be discovered nationally and internationally.
Also joining the Boardmasters line-up for 2019 are indie outfit AIRWAYS who’ve just returned from supporting Deaf Havana on their European tour, viral hitmaker CHELOU, local Falmouth four-piece HOLIDAY GHOSTS who will bring bluesy rock’n’roll, ‘David At The Bar’ singer-songwriter JERRY WILLIAMS and plus fuzzy indie-pop sounds from PEANESS. PLASTIC MERMAIDS are ready to take festivalgoers on a sonic adventure, with Ted Jasper providing the house-vibes, while punk five-piece THE MURDER CAPITAL, along with SUNDAY SHIFT, WHENYOUNG and XYLAROO are also heading to Watergate Bay this summer.
