Music Festivals and Gigs in Newquay

During the summer months there are several huge music festivals in Newquay – and throughout the year there are many smaller gigs either as organised events, or local pubs with musicians playing either every night, or set nights of the week. Most music events and local gigs will be advertised in the local newspapers and watch out for blackboards in the streets or posters in the windows of pubs and clubs. Free Events in Newquay May 2016

It would be impossible to keep abreast of everything that’s happening, because there’s so much of it, but below are the bigger music festivals and events that provide day-long musical entertainment.  These will tend to be ticketed events:

May

The Riviera Run Mini Festival has camping on site and lots of musical entertainment across the early May Bank Holiday weekend each year.

July
Electric Beach Festival is a 2-day music festival held at Fistral Beach, Newquay. Running in the afternoons and into the evening, there will typically be two main artists, one playing each day, with a large collection of other acts providing entertainment.

August
Boardmasters is a massive music festival that’s held in Newquay every year – spread across two venues, at Watergate Bay and Newquay Fistral, the main tents and camping areas are provided at the Watergate Bay site, with transport between the two.

    Newquay New Years Eve Fireworks 2017, Newquay

    Every year at midnight there’s a fireworks display at the end of Newquay Harbour to welcome in the new year.

    Newquay New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display 2017/2018. Newquay Fireworks 2017

    This free firework display starts in the minutes just after midnight.

    Wherever you are in town, as the bells are ringing in the New Year, make a dash next to the Harbour to watch them!

    Get as close as you can, for the best effect, but you can also watch the fireworks from further afield:

    Visible from Watergate Bay, Porth, Tolcarne, Great Western and Towan Beach.
    Visible from Barrowfields and Killacourt.
    From any vantage point, if you can see the sea entrance to Newquay Harbour you’ll be able to see the fireworks.
