Five day Beach Break Live festival set for Newquay this summer
ROOFTOP raves and boat parties are just two of the events that will take place as part of a new music festival in Newquay this summer.
The Beach Break Live festival, which has been held in South Wales for the past three years, has said it will take over the streets, bars, clubs and beaches of Newquay to transform the entire surfing town into the ultimate festival carnival mash-up.
The news comes just days after organisers of Newquay's Run To The Sun festival, held at Trevelgue Holiday Park, announced that this year's event would be the last following a review of the site's licence by Cornwall Council.
Organisers of the Beach Break Live festival have claimed it will be the first UK music holiday, embracing the resort's businesses as part of the event.
Big names have already been lined up for the five-day bash, from June 20 to 24, including Jake Bugg, Devlin and Lucy Rose.
Ian Forshew, Beach Break Live founder, said: "The festival world is changing; we need and want to bring our ticket-holders more than just musicians on a stage. Beach Break Live has always had its community and the experience at its heart and over the years we have grown to become one of the biggest festivals in the UK.
"We're transforming not just Newquay but the whole experience, I cannot wait for what is set to be the ultimate music holiday."
Revellers will be treated to a main stage on Fistral Beach, as well as secret sets in greasy spoons, feverish DJs in classic clubs, hidden rooftop raves, beach discos and boat parties.
Glamping, camping and caravans will be available for those wanting the traditional festival experience, while others are encouraged to stay at accommodation within the resort.
Beach Break Live said the event would bring significant income to Newquay and is working closely with the Newquay Town Council, Newquay BID and all the town's businesses, clubs, pubs and the wider community to ensure the event benefits everyone involved.
Eve Wooldridge, BID manager, said: "We are working with Beach Break Live to ensure that the event is beneficial to all businesses across Newquay, from hotels to retailers.
"We want businesses to understand how they can get involved to maximise on the additional footfall that will be in Newquay for the event. The concept of the event has changed and the organisers want it to work for Newquay and we have to embrace this opportunity."
