FIRST HEADLINER ANNOUNCED FOR BOARDMASTERS 2015
Summer 2014 feels like a lifetime away. The scorching heat, beautiful people, groundbreaking surfing and oh man, the music… what to do next? Time to start planning for next summer and to help things along, Cornwall’s surf and music festival, Boardmasters have confirmed Rudimental as one of their main headliners for next years festival overlooking Watergate Bay, near Newquay.
Nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2013, and having won several awards including the Brit Award and the Mobo Award for Best Album, the band came on everyone’s radar in 2012 with ‘Feel the Love’ featuring John Newman. Other hit followed including ‘Not Giving In, Waiting All Night and Right Here (featuring Foxes).
Rudimental said this about their future Boardmasters performance: “We had an amazing time when we played Boardmasters a few years ago! We can’t wait to come back next year and celebrate our second album with everyone!”
Established in 1981, Boardmasters is a 5-day event situated in two stunning locations in Cornwall. The event in 2014, which welcomed 30,000 festivals-goers has been hailed a huge success; despite the fact that organisers were forced to close the festival early because of severe weather caused by ex-Hurricane Bertha.
