I've been to Boardmasters the last 2 years and each time blessed with sunshine, amazing views and awesome music! Last year Roni Size and Chase and Status were playing and we spent the day drinking cider and boogying in the sunshine, the year before watched the skating at Fistral and headed on down to Watergate Bay in the afternoon where we spent most of the afternoon on the rides. The festival is buzzing with happy people, funky stalls, it's in a stunning part of Cornwall and I'm gonna try and go back again this year as the line up looks amazing!
