Seasick Steve, Newton Faulkner top Boardmasters

Seasick Steve and Newton Faulkner have been unveiled as joint headliners for this year's Relentless Boardmasters festival.

The bluesman and the folk troubadour will both top the bill on the Friday (6 August) night before reformed dance legends Leftfield will close the Saturday (7 August).

Faulkner is clearly looking forward to his slot at the Cornish event, he said: "I can’t wait to do Boardmasters with Seasick Steve, the man is a legend!"

Tickets will go on general sale on 12 March priced at £35 for a day pass, £60 for a weekend ticket without camping and £80 for a weekend pass with camping.

Relentless Boardmasters 2010 takes place in Newquay, Cronwall on Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay from 4-8 August.

As well as three stages of live music, the festival also hosts a number of action sports events, including skating, surfing and BMX south-west-four-sw4-2009.
