Because festival season doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

The Vaccines

This summer we’ll once again be helping you find the easiest ways to Do It In Public on the festival circuit, ditching the car and taking public transport instead for the ultimate festival experience. And even if you’re not going to be able to make it to the festival, at least you can still enjoy the music on your way to (sigh) work. And August 7 can only mean one thing… Boardmasters


The festival
Get away for a weekend, try your hand at surfing in Cornwall, eat well, drink well (in moderation!) and enjoy a perfect billing of live summer acts, all along the legendary Cornish coastline.

This year Boardmasters is headlined by The Vaccines, Basement Jaxx and Ben Howard, click here to see the line up and get super excited. Grab your flip-flops and your tent and leave your troubles at the gate, we’ll see you by the beach!


Getting there
Every Saturday in summer there are fast direct train services to Newquay from London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland. From the station it is only a short walk down to Fistral Beach and is often buzzing with people. Boardmasters also offers a great car sharing service that allows you to find fun people to share the journey with and save money too. The process is simple, click here enter your info now. And if you arrive with four or more people in your car you’ll get to park for FREE!


Travel light tip
The Boardmasters website has loads of handy hints on what essentials you will – and won’t – need to pack. You can also save space in your rucksack by visiting the Surf Retail Village on the Fistral Beach car park. With over 30 stores you can grab anything from a cool new t-shirt to an electric skateboard.

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
