After a first ever sell out in 2016, Cornwall's premier festival returns for another year. Just announced are the three headliners and an assortment of exciting and varied acts

Indie pop legends Two Door Cinema Club are on an all-time high with the release of their new top ten album Gameshow, seeing the band riding another massive wave of success. The band behind huge hits ‘What You Know’, ‘Something Good Can Work’ and more have soundtracked many a summer. Two Door Cinema Club never fail to deliver and are sure to kick-start Boardmasters in style when they headline the main stage on Friday 11 August.

Next up are British funk pioneers Jamiroquai having been out of the live music scene for three years and having not released an album since 2010's Rock Dust Light Star it looks like 2017 will be a big return, with a new album and tour on the way.

Sunday headliners Alt-J show no sign of slowing down as the eccentric, folktronic three-piece recently scored a number one with their second album This Is All Yours, which earned them a well-deserved Grammy nod. Chilled and electrifying all at once; the shimmering backdrop of Watergate Bay is the only place you’ll want to be as Alt-J close the Boardmasters Main Stage on Sunday 13 August.

Other bands announced across the weekend are punk upstarts Slaves, Jake Bugg, Andy C, Wild Beasts, Patrick Topping, Roger Sanchez, Becky Hill, TQD, Theo Kottis, Tom Grennan, Solardo, Royal T, DJ Q, Flava D, Cadenza and pop duo Youngr .

The festival is held at Fistral Beach/ Watergate Bay, Cornwall over the weekend of 9-13 August 2017.
