Following the past year’s hurdles, festivals are back on the horizon. This year will see the UK’s Cornish coast make way for the return of its renowned Boardmasters festival that combines the very best in live music and world-class surf action.
Their full line up kicks off on Friday 13th until 15th August, showcasing a multitude of genres from electronic, indie, grime, rnb and more. Boardmasters have continued to broaden their dance line up year on year, and we’re excited to share our standout artists that are bringing their in demand skill to the south coast this summer.
First up, Friday will see genre fluid tastemaker Barely Legal AKA Chloé Robinson grace the DB90 stage with what is expected to be an eclectic set packed with bass, techno, electro and beyond. The Birmingham-born, London-based DJ is bound to fire up fans with the finest tracks from her own Pretty Weird imprint as well as her debut (unreleased) productions under her Chloé Robinson name, which have already caused delightful damage on the return of dance floors this year.
TSHA will make her way to The Point stage on Saturday, the London based producer has skyrocketed in the past year and if her recent live-streamed sets are anything to go by, expect jam-packed energy from start to finish that's full to the brim of first-class cuts. Also garnering attention for her flawless productions, TSHA’s sets wouldn’t be complete without a couple of her own gems from her Ninja Tune signing thrown in.
Also arriving for the Saturday fun, Berlin based producer and DJ Cinthie has moved from strength to strength in recent years, cemented as one of electronic music’s most respected tastemakers across the globe. Now bringing her revered taste to Boardmasters’ The Point stage, expect grooving house flavours, quirky samples and some of her own cuts to spice up the dance floor.
Keeping the party alive through to Sunday, Jayda G will also be making her mark on The Point stage. The Vancouver born, London based producer has consistently been turning heads with infectious energy behind the decks and original productions including her breakthrough EP Both Of Us / Are U Down via Ninja Tune. With mixes for the likes of Dekmantel Festival, Boiler Room and DJ Kicks already in the bag, expert her Boardmasters visit to be nothing short of extraordinary.
SHERELLE keeps the DB90 stage alive on Sunday evening, a true trailblazer on the scene, the London based producer marks the freshest talent to lead in jungle, drum ‘n’ bass, footwork realms and more. Also an influential voice for saving UK’s nightlife during the pandemic and breaking through the noise, SHERELLE continues to make further waves with her own platform Beautiful to elevate Black and LGBTQ+ voices and stories that have been neglected.
