Wu–Tang Clan have been announced as the Friday night headliner at Boardmasters.
The legendary hip-hop collective — which features the likes of RZA, GZA and Method Man — will mark the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album Enter the Wu–Tang (36 Chambers) with a special performance on the main stage at the seaside extravaganza, which is held between Aug. 7 and Aug. 11, 2019, at Watergate Bay, Newquay, Cornwall.
The “Gravel Pit” hitmakers — who have four gold and platinum studio albums to their name — have collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, Nas, and Busta Rhymes over the years, so it’s likely they may be joined by some special guests.
“Let’s Dance To Joy Division” hitmakers The Wombats have also been confirmed as the Land Of Saints stage headliner.
Florence + The Machine and Foals were previously announced as the Saturday and Sunday night headliners, respectively.
The likes of Plan B, Jax Jones + Martin Solveig, Bugzy Malone, Mabel, Slaves, Sam Fender, Razorlight, Dermot Kennedy, and Grace Carter were also among 60 more acts added to the lineup earlier this month.
Watergate Bay will also see Dizzee Rascal, Jorja Smith — who won the British Female Solo Artist Award at the BRITs on Wednesday night, Feb. 20, 2019 — Franz Ferdinand, plus special guest Giggs perform over the weekend.
2018 saw George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers, and Catfish & The Bottlemen headline the surfing festival.
