Headlining The Point Stage on the Friday will be ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ DJ Zinc. After more than a decade of dominating the D&B scene, he’s now focused on ‘Crack House’ influenced by house, electro and funky music.

Its providing to be a fantastic 2012 for B Traits receiving her own Radio 1 show, more singles and a debut album in the works and now she’s on her way to Newquay in August – watch out the newest star in the making.

Also heading to Newquay in August are soulful, Rudimental, west London production duo Pyramid, BBC Radio 1Extra DJ CJ Beatz, D.O.D, The Beat Medics and Snatch The Wax!

The Main Stage is filling up fast! Joining headliners Ed Sheeran and Dizzee Rascal are The Jezabels, Delilah, Josh Kumra, Sissy & The Blisters, Jenny O, Gabrielle Aplin, Cut Ribbons, Gecko & Lost Dawn!

The Jezabels are a four-piece band all the way from Oz. Their debut album featured epic pop tunes and fantastic blockbuster aesthetics, instead of delivering dusty Aussie pop, The Jezabels weave sound walls of poetic mysticism and this sort of gothic pop is without a doubt suited to the Boardmasters Festival arena.

Chase and Status vocal muse Delilah will be making her debut on the Boardmasters Main Stage. After a massive 2011 with debut solo track ‘Go’ hitting the UK top twenty check out Delilah’s new song ‘Breathe’.

You might not recognize the name but your eardrums love the sound of Josh Kumra. The Swindon singer-songwriter co-wrote and features on last year’s number one smash hit ‘Don’t Go’, with Wretch 32 and in now forging his own ambitions for 2012.

Been pining for a new band to love? Look no further…We will always need goth-tinged pink stompers and Sissy & The Blisters are the quarter making breaking though.

Tipped as one of MTV’s “Brand new for 2012”, Clement Marfo & The Frontline have made a huge name for themselves with their energetic live shows supporting Florence and the Machine, Plan B and Rizzle Kicks to name a few.

Major Look stormed onto everyone’s radar with the heavyweight bass banger ‘Hush Ya Gums’.

We expect big things from this pair for 2012.

Also added to the line up are Beat Medics & Benny MC! Kezia, Michael Cassidy, Matthew & Me, Gareth Lee, Tom Gall, Kaj Skjervik, Solo Collective. 

With support with Maximo Park, Maverick Sabre, Zane Lowe, Ting Tings, DJ FRESH, Donavon Frankenreiter and The Big Pink we have been busy assembling a musical soundtrack built for your summer, forming the biggest and most electric line up seen at Relentless Energy Drink Boardmasters in association with Vans yet.

This year’s festival takes place on 8th-12th August and there is still a plethora of massive announcements to make including who is headlining the Saturday night on the Point Stage and who will be taking to the Vans Stage and the Relentless Energy Drink Stage. 

Stay tuned Boardmasters Fans!
