- The NME Big Read: Foals: “It’s been a decade of the unexpected and they’re all disappointing surprises”
Cornwall’s surf and music event will return between August 11-15 following a two-year absence (the 2020 instalment was scrapped due to the coronavirus crisis, while severe weather caused a last-minute cancellation in 2019).
Topping the bill on the Friday evening (August 13) will be Foals, with Gorillaz and Jorja Smith closing Saturday (August 14) and Sunday (August 15) respectively.
