Boardmasters cancelled: Organisers cancel Cornwall festival due to severe weather warnings

Boardmasters music festival in Cornwall has been cancelled due to severe weather warnings, organisers have announced.

The three-day event, which was set to be headlined by the Wu-Tang Clan, Florence + the Machine, and Foals, was supposed to take place in Newquay this weekend.

Other acts on the lineup included Razorlight, Dizzee Rascal, Franz Ferdinand, Sam Fender and Jorja Smith.

However, organisers said that due to “forecasted severe weather conditions” they had been forced to cancel, after consulting with police and independent safety advisers.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for much of England and Wales on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 August, with a bout of heavy rain forecast followed by heavy showers or thunderstorms.

“The safety of you, the fans and attendees, as well as performers and crew comes first, and the potential risk is too severe for the event to go ahead at this time,” the statement from Boardmasters said.

“We sincerely regret the disappointment to fans, and apologise for any disruption caused to local businesses, performers and crew who were also looking forward to Boardmasters as much as we were.”€

Refund information will be shared “as soon as possible”.
