Show Stages

Show Days

Beach Break Live overlooks one of Cornwall's premier surf beaches: Polzeath Beach. The festival is the first exclusively for students so the fact it takes place in the middle of the week doesn't really matter!

During the day revellers can either relax on the beach or try their hand at the many activities available such as surfing, canoeing and abseiling before the pumping party beats gets the party going until the small hours.

The main stage hosts three different days of music, it opens with surf and ska bands, then funk and soul acts take precedence, before indie and punk bands bring the final night to a riotous close.

There is also a lot of genre-hopping in the DJ Marquee with electro, breakbeat, hip hop, drum n bass and soul blasting out all three days. There is also student bands, theatre and comedy with film screenings taking the festival into the very early hours.
