Boardmasters

9 – 13 August

Boardmasters is where surfboards and guitars vie for admiring glances. Where a day of surf and sand flows into beach parties and bands in the evening.

Here are some more helpful tips for planning your journey to the festival.

Buy your train tickets early

Save money by booking now. Our Advance Single fares are great value, but they are limited and do sell out quickly. 

Remember your Railcard

If you’ve used your Railcard, make sure you bring it with you; otherwise, you may have to pay to upgrade to a full price ticket.

Charge your phone

If you’ve bought an m-ticket, or e-ticket, keep your phone fully charged so you can show it when asked. There are recharging services available at the festival to keep your phone topped-up too.

Space is limited

Only take what you really need, as anything you leave behind just means there’s more to recycle or dispose of. 

Take it with you

Trebeluse Farm hosts the festival, so, it’s important to leave nothing behind that might harm farmer Pete’s cows and sheep. There are plenty of waste and recycling bins, and please remember to use the cigarette butt bins, as these are particularly poisonous for Pete’s livestock.
