Boardmasters 2019 runs from Wednesday 7-Sunday 11 August. Tickets are available via the website with a £30 deposit.
Florence + the Machine released her fourth album, ‘High As Hope’, this year.
In a three star review, NME’s Andrew Trendell wrote: “Stripped of excess, Flo’s truth shines on the safe but subtle album number four.”
NME described the event as full of “stunning sea views and an eclectic mic of indie, dance, dubstep, rap and soul”, noting Years & Years’ “dazzling show”, with frontman Olly Alexander continuing “his pitch to be one of this decade’s most likeable and multi-talented pop stars.”
The festival is held across Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay in Newquay.
