Prepare for a FrENDzy
IF YOU'VE appetite for one more festival before the summer ends, but have already exhausted your party budget – then there is one last opportunity to let loose and dance in a field.
FrENDzy – the annual surf competition and after party – has extended its licence to include entertainment for the whole weekend with a ticket price of just £25, including camping.
The event, which takes place in a secluded wooded valley at St Buryan, starts at 6pm, on Friday, September 13, with live music from Blue Horyzon, pictured, and a host of other local bands including Melodious Funk and Rosie And The Vandals.
Also playing is Max Rafferty, former bassist of The Kooks, who will be revealing tracks from his forthcoming album.

Heading up the comedy aspect of the evening is local pianist and singer Dan Levine whose Cornish takes on modern classics has earned him more than 10,000 views on YouTube and several support slots with Kernow King.
There will also be a family disco and children's entertainment including a bouncy castle.
The event will take place in two large marquees and an open air arena at Westmoor Farm, St Buryan. Gourmet food will be available and there will be a licensed bar.
The West Cornwall Crew Surf Competition takes place at noon on Saturday, September 14, at a location to be decided on the day depending on surf conditions. Teams of four are invited to enter the surf competition to try and wrestle the crown from last year's winners St Agnes.
The entertainment starts again on Saturday at FrENDzy from 2pm, and runs until 6am, with a line-up of local DJs and bands; most of whom are regulars at The Masked Ball. A full line-up of performers is due to be released shortly on the FrENDzy at www.frendzy.co.uk
This year, there will be several newly curated areas including a space dedicated to the surfer and photographer Jacob Cockle who tragically drowned earlier this summer. The Masked Ball production team has been drafted in to transform the wooded valley into a scintillating trail of surprises, with secret areas, mesmerising visuals and unusual installations.
For those wishing to camp in style, bell tents, tepees and 'hobbit huts' can be hired for the weekend.
Tickets to FrENDzy are strictly limited and can be purchased online at www.frendzy.co.uk and Star Inn, St Just; Logan Rock Inn, St Buryan Inn; Little Bo Café, Sennen Cove; The Vault, Penzance, and Down The Line, Hayle.

Much-needed funds for the St Buryan Church Roof Appeal will be raised on the Friday at FrENDzy.
The St Buryan Church Roof Appeal is just £75,000 short of its £360,000 target to replace the slates and timbers on one of Cornwall's most historic churches.
