Boardmasters Festival

Mike Skinner's The Streets have been named as the headline act for the five day surf, skate, BMX and music festival 'Relentless Boardmasters', formerly known as the 'Unleashed Festival'.

Purported to be the biggest event of its kind in Europe, this year's event takes place between Wednesday 5th August to Sunday 9th August at it's usual spot - the beautiful Watergate Bay in Cornwall - the location for 2008's 'Moving Wallpaper' and 'Echo Beach'. The music will take place across three stages, as well as the Beach Sessions - back for it's fourth year.

The 2008 event was headlined by Groove Armada and The Pigeon Detectives and featured a live show from Radio 1's Chris Moyles.

2009 sees the tenth anniversary of Vert skateboarding (extreme vertical ramps) and as such skate and bmx will be celebrated in the appropriate manner, with over $30,000 dollars provided by backer Vans.

Tickets are available now, costing £29 for the Friday or Saturday, £54.99 for the Friday and Saturday or £89 for the whole event (+ booking).
